She lives with her protective son, Ludie, and her authoritarian daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae. Watts wants to return to her beloved hometown of Bountiful, Texas, one last time before she dies, so she escapes to the bus station and befriends a young woman named Thelma.

Alicia Svigals – The Yellow Ticket

The Yellow Ticket is a multimedia event featuring a rare 1918 silent film along with an original score by renowned klezmer violinist/vocalist/composer Alicia Svigals, performed live along with Toronto’s virtuoso new-music pianist Marilyn Lerner.

Alicia Svigals is the world’s foremost klezmer fiddler, a founder of the Grammy-winning Klezmatics and a 2014 NEA MacDowell Fellow in composition. “The Yellow Ticket,” a very early production of the German film company UFA-Pagu, created at the end of World War I, on the eve of the Russian revolution.

It stars an adolescent Pola Negri, who would later become the legendary femme fatale of the silent era. It tells the story of a young Jewish woman from a Polish shtetl constrained by anti-Semitic restrictions. She leads a double life in a brothel while attempting to study medicine in Tsarist Russia. The film includes precious footage of the former Jewish quarter of Warsaw and the people who once lived there.

Pre-eminent film scholar Tom Gunning said about the score: “I believe this accompaniment to The Yellow Ticket is one of the most powerful I have heard. It evokes not only a sense of the contemporary context of the culture in which the film took place, but our awareness of what happened to it. The sound of piano, violin and the human voice evoke passion, energy and a profound sense of mourning, bridging the historical distance between us and this film as eloquently as does Pola Negri’s extraordinary face.”

$40 Regular Seating

This is the Point – A play about love, sex and disability

Friday, February 22nd and Saturday 23 at 8:00 PM

February 2019 Oakville Centre

Black Box Theatre, Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre

By Tony DiaManti, Liz MacDougall, Karin Randoja, Christina Serra and Dan Watson.
Produced by Ahuri Theatre and The Theatre Centre.

This is the Point is a joyous and unflinching portrait of four people whose lives have been shaped, in part, by cerebral palsy. Dan and Christina, his parents search for the best way their disabled son Bruno can share his voice. Tony is a non-verbal adult who won’t shut up. Liz, his long-time romantic partner, grapples with the judgements that society makes about their love and sexuality.

This is the Point addresses misconceptions related to disability by sharing the ordinary and extraordinary stories of these two real life couples. With a verbatim theatre quality and physical comedy delivery, a series of staged conversations and theatrical re-enactments – from getting Bruno ready for school in the morning, to Tony breaking up with his computer because he doesn’t like the simulated voice – This is the Point debates questions of representation, the nature of companionship, and how people of different abilities can connect with each other on equal terms.
