Larry Weyand is a visiting professor in the Visual Arts program at Memorial University's Grenfell campus and a rug hooker whose mats defy the established properties of traditional floor decor. Larry's work is part of the exhibition, Loops to Live By, which weaves a story of rug hooking in Canada, focusing on contemporary developments and traditional practices in Newfoundland and Labrador. Please join us for this artist talk to hear Larry speak about their work. We will also have a look at the exhibition, Loops to Live By, in the art gallery on Level 4. ASL/English Interpreting Services are available through NLAD by request only to ASLservices@therooms.ca or 709-757-8090. We will do our best to accommodate requests made within two weeks of the scheduled event.

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)
