The Best of the Pops – 15th Anniversary Concert

 Presented by Peterborough Pop Ensemble, under the direction of Barbara Monahan.

Saturday September 26, 2015 – 7:30 PM

It has been 15 years since a group of talented individuals within the Peterborough Singers formed an ensemble that is now proudly celebrated as Peterborough’s Music Ambassadors and a prominent member of the Peterborough Arts Community.  Five years ago, with the blessing of our “founding family”, we stepped out on our own and became incorporated as The Peterborough Pop Ensemble.  Today we are a thriving ensemble who performs throughout the Peterborough area and in other Ontario communities.

The celebration of our success will be marked by a very special concert – “The Best of the Pops”.
Ticket prices include a reception catered by Black Honey following the concert.

We hope you will join us in this celebration!

Post-show reception: meet the artists in the lobby following the show.

In Tame, choreographer Lara Kramer’s newest work, three dancers navigate a chaotic landscape filled with ambiguity, off-beat humour and colourful perversion. As Public Energy’s artist-in-residence, Lara is putting the finishing touches on this brand new work and conducting a variety of outreach activities in the community. Kramer, whose work is intimately linked to memory and her aboriginal roots, took the Canadian dance world by storm with her most recent work, Native Girl Syndrome.

Romeo & Juliet: Superstar Ice Miners of Europa!!!

Presented by Public Energy

November 26/27, 2015 – 8:00 PM

The bard’s tragedy of star-crossed lovers meets anti-corporate sci-fi in Romeo & Juliet: Superstar Ice Miners of Europa!!!, adapted by Kate Story. In a future where Jupiter’s moon, Europa, is being mined for ice to supply water to Earth, Shakespeare’s original text is skilfully blended with new writing featuring themes of environmental collapse, surveillance, celebrity culture, and homophobia. The result is, in the words of reviewer Sam Tweedle, “entertaining, clever, intelligent, and performed to perfection; the greatest tragedy of this production will be if you miss it.”

Harry Manx

Blues, World Music Songwriter

Presented by Folk Under The Clock

Friday February 5, 2016 – 8:00 PM

Harry Manx has been dubbed an “essential link” between the music of the East and West, creating short musical stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas.

In the mid 80’s he began a five-year tutelage with Rajasthani Indian musician Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (Grammy winner with Ry Cooder for ‘A Meeting By The River’) and began playing the Mohan Veena (20- stringed sitar /guitar hybrid.

Manx is a prolific artist with nine albums in eight years. He has received seven Maple Blues Awards and his albums have garnered five Juno nominations. His latest album ,’20 Strings and the Truth’ is a mostly instrumental album, which fans had been asking for.

His music is hard to resist, easy to digest and keeps audiences coming back for more !

“Watching Harry play tonight I feel like I learned something new…” – Bruce Springsteen  (after seeing Harry perform “I’m on Fire”)

“Canada’s most versatile and expressive blues player” – Billboard Magazine

Dollhouse

Presented by Public Energy

Saturday April 2, 2016 – 8:00 PM

Post-Show Reception: Meet the artists in the lobby following the show.

Created in collaboration with sound artist Gordon Monahan, set designer David Gaucher, and lighting designer Pierre Lavoie, Bill Coleman‘s newest work, Dollhouse – depicts a figure whose whole world is literally falling in on top of him. The small, object-laden room he inhabits collapses and breaks at his every touch, seemingly moving of its own accord as its occupant tap-dances through a 50-minute theatrical disintegration. The resulting chaos creates an eye-opening spectacle and unique musical score along the way.
