The Trial of David Suzuki

One of Canada’s most trusted and respected scientists, Dr. David Suzuki, stands accused of seditious libel
on Wednesday, November 6, 2013. A public trial is to take place at the
Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). The reason for this charge? On
Wednesday, October 9, on the steps of the Toronto Courthouse, Suzuki
announced his Carbon Manifesto – a bold, uncompromising plan that
spells out the end of oil and sets a new course for Canada’s sustainable
energy future. The Manifesto calls for the end of fossil fuels as a primary
energy source; to protect Canada’s Boreal forest and oceans; a move
ensuring 70% of the energy we consume is renewable within one
generation; a carbon tax of $150 per tonne effective immediately; and
that Canadian climate scientists must be able to share their findings
uncensored and unimpeded by political or corporate interests.

Will Suzuki’s Carbon Manifesto save Canada or destroy it? Is he talking reason or treason? Is Suzuki
undermining the financial security of the country? Or does the economy and country matter when our
planet is turning toxic?

Jazz vocalist Adi Braun, pianist Dave Restivo, bassist Pat Collins and drummer Daniel Barnes trace the musical and personal journey of German composer Kurt Weill and his wife, singer and actress, Lotte Lenya.

Six inspiring series offer concerts, dance performances and engaging presentations that feature both up-and-coming young artists and established international stars. All performances are FREE to the public, with admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Concertgoers are encouraged to arrive early as late seating is not available.

Emanuel Ax Plays Brahms

For Brahms, a concerto called for every bit as much depth, ingenuity, and imagination as a symphony. Piano Concerto No. 2 is a big, bold piece that has everything: warmth, drama, excitement, and beauty.

Come for: Emanuel Ax, an audience favourite who has a long and accomplished relationship with the TSO, plays Brahms’s magnificent Piano Concerto No. 2.

And more: Two symphonies, separated in time by 200 years: one a cheerful masterpiece of the eighteenth-century Classical style; the other a fascinating Canadian piece from our own time, written by the TSO’s Composer Advisor.

F’D Up

F’d Up! aims to explore the tension between these new directions that redefine the concept of “fibre art” based on examples of significant artists working in North America today. Based upon experimentation, these works differentiate the protagonists from decades before, thereby illustrating how a new vocabulary is created as the result of a formative radical gesture.

Franco Arcieri: Astral Noise

Emerging artist Franco Arcieri investigates motion and movement with the use of fabric as a means of concealing
his body. Appearing as an achetype and performing in an almost dreamlike trance, the artist plays with our memory and
senses. Arcieri employs sculpture, video and sound to create an encounter with the viewer through an innovative fibre-based
performance.
