Event description

Description

“A film, a painting, an essay, a concert – and yes, a play – all at once… Extraordinary.” – Macleans Magazine

Conceived and produced by Toronto’s inventive and eclectic Art of Time Ensemble, I Send You This Cadmium Red follows the correspondence between writer and painter John Berger and his friend John Christie, a painter and filmmaker.

Their words, a parry-and-riposte on the sensual experience of colour, are set to original music by Gavin Bryars and illuminated by the dreamscape animations of director Bruce Alcock. Actors Julian Richings and Alon Nashman, under the direction of Daniel Brooks, perform alongside a chamber ensemble of exceptional musicians led by Artistic Director Andrew Burashko.

Two performances to choose from: March 21 & March 22 from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m.
