O'Born Contemporary

Radar: The Frogs, CRIT #7 at OBC, Dina Gonzalez Mascaro Pop-Up, Amplifying Femme

THEATRE | The Frogs
The Frogs is where the Greeks and Brits get along really well. Opening at the George Ignatieff Theatre tonight, this adaptation of Aristophanes' original comic tale about Dionysus' travels to Hades in search of a saviour of Greek society will bring George Bernard Shaw back from the dead. A comedy about the challenges of life, death and George Bernard Shaw's world-saving abilities, this Stephen Sondheim musical runs on a one-week engagement, closing January 26th.
George Ignatieff Theatre (15 Devonshire Place) 8PM $15 general, $10 student

ART | CRIT #7 at OBC
In between exhibits, O'Born Contemporary pauses to reflect on exhibits past and future. Based solely on the opinions of six presenters who will be given 15 minutes to speak, O'Born's down time focuses on peer evaluation, allowing the presenters to open a dialogue with those in attendance about prior exhibits. The first six guests to RSVP to info@oborncontemporary.com are guaranteed presenting and discussion time but all are welcome to attend and engage in the forum, which will discuss the previous 2nd Annual Emergent Artists exhibit.
O'Born Contemporary (131 Ossington Avenue) 6PM Free
