Toronto events on Tuesday, March 12, 2013
FASHION | The Wearable Art Show
Exploring various mediums as wearable art, Ryerson's first Wearable Art Show will examine how design can be fitted to the human body. The student-run fashion show is intended to manipulate media while giving a new platform to artists and fashion designers. Two shows will take place at the Gladstone Ballroom tonight with all proceeds going to the St. Alban's Boys and Girls Club.
Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West) 6PM/9PM $15
DANCE | Romeo & Juliet
The National Ballet of Canada has been successfully turning theatre pieces into inspired dance stories for many years but Romeo & Juliet has been a returning favourite on the company's stage since 1964. Opening tonight for a short run that will feature just 8 shows until March 17th, the new version of the show is choreographed by Russian dancer Alexei Ratmansky and set to a score by Sergei Prokofiev. Tickets to each performance of this Shakespearean ballet are still available.
Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts (145 Queen Street West) 7:30PM $55-$145
FOOD | GE Café Chefs Series: Maple Madness
Maple is part of Canadian blood, which is why Chef Matthew Demille has created a special maple-inspired menu for tonight's GE Café Chefs Series event at Evergreen Brick Works. A line-up of interactive workshops and demonstrations for foodies, this series introduces attendees to new ways to think about what they eat while experimenting with and teaching new recipes. Anyone interested in the modern food movement will enjoy tonight's workshop with the former chef de cuisine of Enoteca Sociale as he experiments with maple in a large gourmet meal (which of course will be available for eating afterward). Tickets are available through the Evergreen website.
Evergreen Brick Works (550 Bayview Avenue) 6PM $75
ART | Ron Arad: What Was Your Question?
Israeli designer Ron Arad has worked as an industrial, graphic and architectural designer. With an impressive portfolio of studio work, Arad's pieces have appeared in the MoMA, Pompidou Centre, de Pury & Luxembourg and Galerie der Moderne. Arad comes to Toronto tonight for the launch of PQ Eyewear and in conjunction with the release, he sits down in the DX Library to discuss the collection's designs and the inspiration he drew from Le Corbusier, animal vertebrae and his former work. As always, the event is free for DX members.
Design Exchange (234 Bay Street) 5PM $15
