"ART"

Serge, who loves art, has just bought himself a painting. Very expensive. All white with some transverse stripes. When he presents his new painting, completely white, to his two friends Marc and Yvan, a conflict breaks out. His friend Marc, who does not like art, finds this purchase useless, which brings out old resentments and aggravates the situation. They ask Yvan what he thinks. But Yvan, anxious about his marriage, just wants to have a good time. This is followed by an escalation where this old friendship will be very seriously shaken for a matter of taste. Yvan : Je ressens une vibration.Marc : Tu ressens une vibration?Yvan : Tu nies que je puisse apprécier en mon nom ce tableau!Marc : Évidement.Yvan : Et pourquoi?Marc : Parce que je te connais. Parce que, outre tes égarements d’indulgence, tu es un garçon sain.Yvan : On ne peut pas en dire autant te concernant. Translated into 35 languages, this comedy has been a worldwide success for 25 years! On the one hand, we find in it the epitome of the French spirit - finesse, intelligence, lightness, liveliness, humor - on the other hand, it is a piece that brilliantly speaks of friendship between men, which can be as passionate as love.

Alina

Produced by Pyretic Productions in association with Punctuate! Theatre May 24 - June 5, 2022 STUDIO THEATRE at the ATB Financial Arts Barns (10330 – 84 Ave) Tuesday-Saturday 7:30pm, Sundays 2pm No performances on Mondays. Accessibility Information for the ATB Financial Arts Barns here. Alina is inspired by the true experiences of a 19-year-old volunteer Ukrainian combat medic who leaves everything behind to go to the front line of one of the deadliest battles of the war in Eastern Ukraine in 2015 — the battle for the Donetsk Airport. But it is when she returns home to the shock of “peaceful” civilian life that she realizes her struggle does not end at the front. Alina is an exhilarating, breathless journey toward and away from war. Want or need content and performance advisories ahead of the performance?

Re:Construct

A trans man and his idealized cis self enter the room, inviting onlookers to a very brave thing on the best day, the most perfect day ever. A guided meditation, a group retreat, a paint night, whatever it takes — together, if they just erase the image there, remove a memory here, edit the names, refine the story, refine the story… maybe perfection will be attainable in the end after all. Important Information Regarding COVID-19 Common Ground Arts Society is continuing COVID-19 mitigation procedures, including masking at all performances. Proof of vaccination will be required for the June 7 performance (7:30pm) and late-night June 9 performance (9:30pm).
