What To Do With Albert?

April 13, 2019 to April 28, 2019. April 13, 2019 to April 28, 2019A heartwarming comedy for fathers, daughters, and lovers of tall talesWorld Première A bilingual partnership with Théâtre Cercle Molière Albert, eighty-something and a teller of tall tales, loves to amuse and entertain with his stories. His daughter, though increasingly exasperated by her father's story-telling prowess, wants only the best for him after the loss of her mother. When she suggests that he move to a retirement home for seniors, he sets off on an adventure instead – a pilgrimage with his beloved wife Simone's ashes, to visit all the places they'd shared some of their happiest moments. Unfortunately, his brilliant plan sets off a bit of a panic when he seems to have disappeared. This gentle comedy explores love, loss, father-daughter relationships and how to stay true to yourself, no matter how old you get. "I wanted to write a play that somewhat mirrored my experiences with my own aging father – with lots of artistic license. As so many of us have found, there are moments of frustration, along with many moments of love – and moments when you just have to laugh." – Danielle Séguin-TétreaultBack . Event Details.

Margaret Switala: A Spontaneous Journey

April 6, 2019 to April 30, 2019. April 6, 2019 to April 30, 2019Reception, Friday, April 12, 2019 7-9 PM Producing abstract work is a big departure from Margaret Switala's paintings in finely detailed realism and surrealism. For her, the challenges of creating something provocative and meaningful through the use of colour, form and texture have initiated a journey of self exploration and reinvention.On a rudimentary level, her work is about beauty, truth and connectivity. She is evolving from one artwork to the next.  This is her abstract language. It is as much about the process itself as it is the product of her own personal voyage and exploration.  Back .

Strike 1919: Divided City

March 30, 2019 to February 5, 2020Winter Hours (Jan 7 to May 17): Tues to Fri 10 am - 4 pm / Sat, Sun & Holidays 11 am - 5 pm / CLOSED Mondays. March 30, 2019 to February 5, 2020Winter Hours (Jan 7 to May 17): Tues to Fri 10 am - 4 pm / Sat, Sun & Holidays 11 am - 5 pm / CLOSED MondaysThe 1919 Winnipeg General Strike was a major event in the history of Winnipeg and the nation. Canada's largest strike, encompassing over 30,000 workers, took place in downtown Winnipeg and shut down the city on May 15, 1919 for 40 days.The Manitoba Museum's Urban Gallery, which was created to depict Winnipeg in 1920, will be transformed as time is virtually rolled back to 1919. Using digital architectural projections of Strike scenes, authentic artifacts from the Strike, photographs, archival interviews with Strike participants, and audio creations of "discussions" between Winnipeggers of 1919 populate the space. Visitors will be placed at the epicenter of a city divided. The General Strike was spurred on by businesses resistant to union organization, poor working conditions, stagnant wages, and unemployment. It started with marches and counter-marches, then escalated into a brawl, then riots. At the heart of the Strike was a deep social question: who was in control of Winnipeg? Was it the strikers? The government? Or business interests? For six weeks, it was an open question. The answer came in the form of violence organized by traditional authorities. The Strike was broken after the arrest of labour leaders, the shooting deaths of two strikers, and the initiation of military patrols on our city streets. While the strikers lost the battle, they would eventually win the war for workers' rights. Many strike leaders, even those arrested, became leading politicians working for the labour cause, helping set the standard for Canadian labour laws of today.Back . Event Details.
