The Grid TO referred to this tour as a “Don’t Miss”. This isn’t your elementary school brown bag lunch tour of bologna on Wonder White Bread. This “Insanewich!” food tour will take you to our favourite hangouts in the city where you will taste and savour sandwiches from land and sea. This tour is totally dedicated to the art of the sandwich. You will visit and devour meats that have been marinated from 24 hours – 3 days. This tour promises to include menu items that are slow cooked, sloppy, and stacked with meat. The only prerequisite is plenty of napkins, two hands and maybe a fork. Are you “Insanewich” enough to join us?

Swan Lake – November

One of the central works of the classical ballet canon, and one of the most enduringly resonant and deeply affecting of all works of theatrical art, Swan Lake has enthralled audiences since its premiere in Moscow in 1877. Set to a timeless and famously evocative score by Tchaikovsky, the ballet is marked by a thematic and stylistic dynamism that embraces the fantastic and mythic while remaining rooted in the most universal of human emotions.

Swan Lake retains the captivating, 19th-century fairy-tale quality of the ballet while grounding the narrative in a richly suggestive earthiness that accentuates the tension between the sensual and the ethereal, the natural and the supernatural. The emotional and thematic complexities that are revealed in choreographer James Kudelka’s re-telling of the story are heightened and complemented by Santo Loquasto’s exquisite and vibrant sets and costumes, both conveying the ballet’s tragic beauty and powerful effect with consummate artistry.

David Bowie Is

Straight from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, North America’s debut of hit exhibition includes culture icon’s original stage costumes, instruments, album art and music videos.

This fall the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) offers North America its first chance to take an exciting odyssey through the world of pioneering artist David Bowie—musician, performer and style icon—in the acclaimed exhibition David Bowie is, direct from the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London, England. Spanning five decades and featuring more than 300 objects from Bowie’s personal archive, the multi-media show exposes the groundbreaking artist’s collaborations in the fields of fashion, sound, theatre, art and film. David Bowie is will open on Sept. 25, 2013 and runs to Nov. 27, 2013, giving Toronto two full months to live the experience. The AGO is the exhibition’s first stop on its world tour.

Acclaimed by the New York Times as “united in sound and vision in a way rarely seen in a museum,” David Bowie is marks the first international exhibition devoted to the British-born musician and performer (born David Robert Jones in 1947), who has sold more than 140 million albums to date throughout his genre-defying career. Organized thematically, the show immerses visitors in a spectacular and interactive trip through Bowie’s numerous personae and legendary performances, with particular attention paid to his artistic influences. His experiments with Surrealism, German Expressionism, Music Hall, mime and Japanese Kabuki performance are all explored in an explosion of colour, light and sound.

Winners and Losers

An exhilarating, playful, and brutally honest two-hander from the producers of 2013’s Someone Else.

Produced by Theatre Replacement and Neworld Theatre, in association with Crow’s Theatre, Presented by Crow’s Theatre in association with Canadian Stage
Winners and Losers is a staged conversation that embraces the ruthless logic of modern-day capitalism, and tests its impact on our closest personal relationships. Theatre artists and long-time friends Marcus Youssef and James Long sit at a table and play a game they made up called “winners and losers,” in which they name things and people — Pamela Anderson, microwave ovens, Goldman Sachs, their fathers — and debate whether, from their perspective, these things are winners or losers. As the conversation unfolds, the competition quickly begins to have an unanticipated cost.

“Youssef… and Long… have delivered the goods — the thrilling, experimental, theatrical goods.” – Georgia Straight.

“The experience for the audience is exhilarating.” – Vancouver arts journalist Jo Ledingham.

“Verbal fireworks.” – The Globe and Mail.
