A TASTE OF SHAKESPEARE

Written by Anika Krempl who also directs, guests will be greeted by William Shakespeare. The Bard will introduce “sweet servings of four classic scenes”.  He’ll present a taste of the lightest of his comedies and the darkest of his tragedies in an intimate, cabaret setting. You’ll meet star-crossed lovers, an ambitious Lord and his Lady, a couple engaged in a battle of wits, and fools, fairies and a King.

JULIE TREMBLAY:STRANGE ATTRACTORS AT STRONGROOM
Julie Tremblay’s work often takes scientific theories as a starting point, exploring the complicated relationships between the natural and human worlds.Both research-based and instinctive, her monumental sculptures can take many forms. Twisting and flowing through space, suspended above or around you, hard edges of an accordion fold meet a bulbous curve of sculpted aluminum mesh. Her work shows you form you might feel inclined to embrace, climb into, or even imitate.
