Lecture

Join Billy Gauthier for a talk and tour of his exhibition, Beyond Bone. Gauthier is a renowned sculptor of Inuit and Metis ancestry whose inspiration comes directly from an intimate connection with the land and culture of his home in North West River, Labrador. His sculptures are characterized by attention to detail and ability to illustrate stories that advocate for the protection of the environment and traditional Inuit practices. Many of the works in this exhibition are on loan from private collections across the country and will be seen together for the first time! This unique opportunity will conclude with a tour of the exhibition where Gauthier will share personal stories about key works and the inspirations behind them.

Events & Programs

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Shakspeare By The Sea

CORIOLANUS
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Mallory Fisher

This production marks Artistic Director Mallory Fisher's directorial debut with the company, and will broaden the appeal of Shakespeare by re-examining one of his lesser known and infrequently staged plays—Coriolanus—in a contemporary context. Set in present-day Newfoundland, the production will underscore the play’s extant themes of corruption of power, instability of capitalism, desensitization to violence, and toxic masculinity to examine our current political and social zeitgeist.

Tickets: $25 (general admission), $20 (students, seniors, unwaged)
