Fire Exit Theatre’s final play this season, As It Is In Heaven by Arlene Hutton, explores the dynamics of a group of Shaker women living in Pleasant Hill, Kentucky in 1838 – and how the arrival of newcomers challenges that dynamic. The play may be set in the 1800s, but without cues from Julia Wasilewski’s costuming, you could mistake the show for a modern-day telling of what happens to the balance of a close-knit community when new people and new experiences enter their lives.  [click to continue…]

Thinking about heading to the mall to catch a movie this Spring? Before seeing the latest Star Wars prequel or the newest superhero action flick, take a break from the ordinary to celebrate a different kind of film. From April 16 – 22, the Calgary Underground Film Festival (CUFF) will be back at The Globe Cinema for its fifteenth year – and what a year it will be.

Things are pretty quiet in a small diner in rural Ontario. It’s 1928, the height of prohibition in the States and the dawn of a new way of looking at the world. Lucy watches that world through magazines and ‘moving pictures’ from her little life in her diner, longing for a little bit of dazzle. This desire drives the action in Vertigo Theatre’s The Lonely Diner. This production is carefully crafted and well directed, with the threat of violence just sitting on the surface the entire time.

Her personal style and amazing energy have impressed me for years, so it’s no wonder that she’s appeared in front of my camera on numerous occasions, from features for other publications to galleries that I captured at various festivals and events throughout the years. And now, she’s back for another round, because well…I said so! And when Ashely Engbrecht showed up in her flashy metallic jacket, I knew that everything was perfectly aligned for another photo shoot.

I love how she layers this look and adds beautiful knits in neutral tones to pieces that are much much bolder – and rocks it hard. I think playing with textures, colours and fabrications can be so much fun, and Engbrecht does just that. Sprinkle in her beautiful smile, and you have photos you won’t soon forget.
