Radar: The Craigslist Project, Ride the Cyclone, Franzlations Book Launch, Love & Rockets Photo Exhibition, Climate is Culture

ART | The Craigslist Project
Using great art and social media to create more great art, The Craigslist Project is an intriguing photo exhibit that involved posting photos on the site to spark debate and reaction. The artist, Samantha Allen, produced a series of Craigslist ads, which will be on display at tonight's exhibit, along with responses from the site's users. The exhibit will be open until Sunday.
Artscape Triangle Gallery (38 Abell Street) 6PM Free

THEATRE | Ride the Cyclone
When a six-piece chamber choir from Saskatchewan dies in a freak roller coaster accident at the fair, they are given the unique chance to express their feelings about life and death. This expression manifests in the performance of Ride the Cyclone, a new play premiering at Theatre Passe Muraille this evening. The musical, directed by Britt Small and Jacob Richmond, explores the anger of a young generation and is produced in collaboration with Acting Up Stage Company. The performance runs until December 3rd.
Theatre Passe Muraille (16 Ryerson Avenue) 7:30PM $30

LITERATURE | Franzlations Book Launch
Franzlations: The Imaginary Kafka Parables celebrates its release tonight with a launch party at The Ossington. Authors Gary Barwin, Craig Conley and Hugh Thomas, along with the spirit of Franz Kafka, will be present to read from their book that uses the German author's parables to create vivid stories and poetry that pay homage his works. Franzlations is now available through New Star Books.

PHOTOGRAPHY | Love & Rockets Photo Exhibition
Michael Mitchener likes streetcars so much, he has made an entire exhibit out of them. The photographer debuts his Love & Rockets exhibit in Leslieville tonight with an opening reception party.

The local photographer's works will remain on display in the cafĂŠ until the end of the month.
