What Makes It Great?® Eine Kleine Nachtmusik

Mozart’s serenade, Eine kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music), has become one of the most frequently performed pieces of music ever.

Join Rob Kapilow and the TSO to uncover the elegance and grace that make this seemingly-simple serenade so great.

Come for: Rob Kapilow’s insightful musical examples of Mozart’s genius.

And more: One of the most recognizable pieces of music ever written.

Program: Mozart: Eine kleine Nachtmusik, K. 525.

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.
