Join us for a pre-concert reception celebrating the finale of GroundSwell’s 2013-14 season and get an exclusive sneak peek at our 2014-15 concert season! Featuring a wine tasting by the Kenason Wine Market and a delectable spread of hors d’oeuvres and desserts.
Two incredible artists invite us deep into the worlds of two creative titans: Richard Wagner and Gertrude Stein. In the first half, Berlin-based Canadian performance artist Myra Davies presents The 40-Minute Ring, a fast and funny multi-disciplinary dash through Hitler’s favourite action fantasy. In the second Diana McIntosh gives us a glimpse into the playful and profound mind of Gertrude Stein in McIntosh the Stein Way – a theatrical multi-media take on the writings of Gertrude Stein and one of McIntosh’s best-loved works.
Curator: Diana McIntosh
