Leap Day is tomorrow and within 24 hours of writing this I will be out the door for the first ever 12 hour Arts Marathon, sponsored by me.
The weather is scheduled to be gross, then again it’s supposed to be raining right now and it’s sunny, so we’ll see what happens.
Parkdale Public Library – literature – and it means I can get a book to read in between times.
MOCCA – visual art – I’m not going to see a specific exhibition, rather I am going to see MOCCA. It is a fifteen minute walk from my house and I have never been there. This is the point of living downtown.
Canadian Stage – dance – ticket booked for Dark Matters – Innovative and award-winning choreographer Crystal Pite’s work integrates original music, text, rich visual design, and a keen sense of wit and invention.
Factory Theatre – theatre – ticket booked for Theatre Ad Infinitum’s The Big Smoke – In a courageous physical performance with a completely original text and score sung a cappella, Amy Nostbakken tells the story of a brilliant young artist from Toronto given the opportunity of a lifetime: solo exhibit at London’s Tate Modern Art Gallery.
There you have it – clearly no blog post tomorrow, but you can check in with me on Twitter and I’ll be using #12hAM.
In case people are wondering how much all this costs, numbers will be posted tomorrow. I think this can be done for less than $100.
