THEATRE | Like A Generation
A dissection and articulation of Generation Y's place in history is the objective of the creators of Like A Generation, the Theatre Passe Muraille's latest performance piece, which opens tonight. Defining themselves through pop culture and their connections to multimedia, Blue Bigwood-Mallin, Susannah Mackay, Max Tepper and Eric Welch bring their personal experiences, and their worldview and its many influencers, to this play. Running for just three days, there are a limited number of performances but be sure to check out the Saturday matinee (it's pay-what-you-can).
Theatre Passe Muraille's Backspace (16 Ryerson Avenue) 7:30PM $20 general, $12 student/senior

PHOTOGRAPHY | New Development: A Photography Show
As young photographers develop and grow, Creatures Creating unites them for the love of art. Opening tonight, New Development may sound like a boy band but it's really all about the young boys of photography (and two girls) showcasing their talent and love of creativity. Works by Tom Ridout, Matthew Volpe, and Danika Zandboer will be on display at tonight's reception and will remain as part of the exhibit until January 16th.
Creatures Creating (822 Dundas Street West) 7PM Free
ART | Clint Neufeld
Osler native Clint Neufeld uses the tools of Saskatchewan trade to create sculptures that are deeply personal. His ceramic, porcelain and wax pieces are combined with tools like engines, excavating buckets, and other mechanical devices to approach
topics like identity, gender politics, and aesthetics in Pipe Dreams of Madame Récamier. Tonight's opening reception will see the artist in attendance at his first solo Toronto show; an artist talk will take place on Sunday at 4PM at General Hardware Contemporary.
Koffler Gallery Off-Site at General Hardware Contemporary (1520 Queen Street West) 6PM Free
