  • Adult Colouring-In

    With the success of our Get School’d Adult Colouring workshop, we’ve decided to make this a regular thing. Let your inner child out and kick it old school with our adult colouring-in every Thursday 5pm to close in the Melody Bar! There is something very relaxing about this under-rated art form and we’ve decided to bring it back. So, grab a beer and groove to some tunes while trying to stay in the lines. All supplies included.

Variations of that critically acclaimed program toured throughout Canada, the US, Europe, Asia, Central and South America. Now, over a decade later, we are very excited to breathe life into a new program oflifeDUETs for our 25th anniversary. Including commissions from incomparable choreographers Tedd Robinson and Benjamin Kamino, this program is a celebration of one of Canada’s premiere dancing duos. “An enthusiastic Allen; a calming Karen; an over industrious couple who on breaks (I frequently suggested to them that they work too hard as they sat at their computers jointly working); too many suggestions at times, but always better than no help at all; a dedicated couple who have worked hard who know each other’s next move (which makes things go fast); a studio with a no-grudge atmosphere, but a bit of revealing gossip which is always good for the blood pressure and a laugh at my age and no I will not tell and neither will they; comfortable.” – Tedd Robinson “The dance we are making is made from the time these two dancers have spent with each other. Through telepathy, meditation, and closure we practice becoming the other in order to access the myriad of dances unknown to the other yet existent in their unknowing. If love is a light, then it must always be shaded in darkness; humanity’s darkness, selfhood’s darkness, the darkness of trust/mistrust… and of course the darkness of the future. This dance, slow becoming, is a wandering though darkness in search of the light we feel to be real through our loving acts and yet will never touch in life.” Benjamin Kamino Don’t miss lifeDUETs – a celebration of family, of company, of love and partnership. PERFORMANCE DATES: October 13th – 8pm – Preview October 14th – 8pm October 15th – 8pm October 16th – 8pm October 17th – 8pm
