Toronto events on July 3rd, 2013
THEATRE | Toronto Fringe Festival
The 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival begins today! This annual theatrical festival will present close to 150 shows in 35 venues across the city, and is known for giving unknown artists and playwrights a chance to get their work staged and presented to a local audience. Unlike other festivals where a jury is used to select which submissions are staged, a lottery system is used here giving all works a chance. Tonight there are several choices for you, including Aaron Rothermund's Charming Monsters, Aki Kaurism채ki's I Hired a Contract Killer, Kristofer Van Soelen's Big Metal Box, and many others. The Toronto Fringe Festival runs until July 14th.
Various TO Venues - July 3rd to 14th
ART | The Collage Art Exhibit
The technique of collage goes way back to the invention of paper by the Chinese a little over two thousand years ago. It became a Western artform of significance and acquired its name in the early 20th Century, however. The recent resurgence of this technique, which has never gone off the radar completely, has led to a renewed interest in it, and tonight's exhibition at Steam Whistle Gallery is just further evidence that this form is alive and well. A group of artists: Laura Clayton, Drew Taylor, Victoria Iles, Mel Coleman, Caitlin Eady, Lloyd Arbour, Sean Gadoury, and Victoria Alstein have contributed works in this medium to a show that begins tonight and runs through July 31st.
Steam Whistle Brewing (255 Bremner Blvd) 7PM
MUSIC | Drum Up! Musicworks + TORQ Percussion
TORQ Percussion plays Drum Up! tonight: a fundraiser at the Gladstone Hotel for Musicworks Magazine. Musicworks is a Canadian publication that focuses on experimental music and sound art, and is proud to launch "Musicworks Editions", a limited edition of artwork by well known Canadian composers and artists. TORQ will be playing an exciting program, including works by Steve Reich, John Cage, and Ann Southam. Your cover charge tonight will also get you a one-year subscription to Musicworks, and will go towards educational outreach programs that the magazine has in place.
Gladstone Hotel - The Ballroom (1214 Queen Street West) 7PM $50
FILM | Free Flicks
If you enjoy the atmosphere at Harbourfront and free movies, tonight you will want to check out the first screening of this Summer's "Free Flicks" series at Harbourfront's WestJet Stage. Every Tuesday night at nine o'clock a different film will be shown, and there's a vote in progress from the film to be shown on the last Tuesday in August. Tonight, the director's cut of Little Shop Of Horrors will be shown. This 1986 film, directed by Frank Oz, boasts a stellar cast, starring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin, John Candy, Bill Murray, and Ellen Greene.
