Form, Colour, Line

Form, colour and line are three of the most basic elements of a work of art that can be perceived by the senses, but they also offer a rich ground for breaking boundaries and for artists to explore new ideas by departing from convention. Natasha Gouveia and Laura Marotta make bold statements about colour, most notably in their critique of it, and through their process showcase at once intellectual and playful approaches to the constraints of line and form. Where noted abstract painter Ellsworth Kelly envisioned his seminal monograph Line Form Colour as an “an alphabet of plastic pictorial elements,” Form, Colour, Line picks up this notion and carries it forward, into three dimensions and away from traditionally “masculine” forms of minimalism.

The Backyardigans: Sea Deep in Adventure

Who explores a coral reef, plays in an octopus’s garden, and joins the jellyfish ballet – all before snack time? The Backyardigans! Pablo, Tyrone, Tasha, Uniqua and Austin are back on stage, singing and dancing and ready to plunge sea deep into adventure.

Dive into the action as these five friends explore clues, discover underwater magic, and match wits with an all-too-tidy octopus and a pair of playful (but messy!) dolphins. With a splashy range of song-and dance styles to wade along to – including psychedelic soul, Bollywood, bossa nova, and more – our heroes save the day.

With non-stop excitement and surprises, this watery tale will mesmerize, entertain and delight audiences of all ages!

The theatrical production is based on the top-rated preschool television program The Backyardigans, airing on Treehouse TV in Canada and Nick Jr. in the US.

Grimaud Plays Brahms

April 17 & April 19. Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1 is a tumultuously emotional work where piano and orchestra pool their strengths to triumph over darkness.

Come for: Pianist Hélène Grimaud somehow finds time not only to pursue a brilliant career as a concert pianist and recording artist, but also to write books, and campaign on behalf of conservationist and human rights issues. She invests her multifaceted life experience in every performance she gives.

And more: Two quite different pieces inspired by Easter: Rimsky-Korsakov’s majestic overture on Russian liturgical themes, and Messiaen’s radiant visions of Christ’s ascension to heaven.
