Throwback Thursdays

Oh dear… it would appear I never hit ‘Publish’ and left this sitting in Draft form only while I was away at my Conference last week.  With apologies… here it is now.

**********************************************************

Welcome to this week’s edition of ‘Throwback Thursdays @ ESA‘… where we feature, each week, one ‘classic’ recording from the ESA Performance Archives.

This week we feature a ‘documentary’ recording a 1997 Community Engagement Project.

  • Visual Art students from ESA worked collaboratively to create and install an outdoor mural at Humber Valley Village JMS.

Access the video clip here at the ESA Library YouTube Channel.

Welcome back to ‘Throwback Thursdays @ ESA‘… where we will feature, each week, one ‘classic’ recording from the ESA Performance Archives.

This week we feature Dance Night 2003, a production of Madame Butterfly.

  • Sadly I have not yet come across a programme or other information detailing cast and crew.
  • If anyone has anything like that, I’d be delighted if you c/would share.

Throwback Thursday’s

I am delighted to announce the launch of ‘Throwback Thursdays @ ESA‘… where we will feature, each week, one ‘classic’ recording from the ESA Performance Archives.

For our first feature we present the digitised copy of the recording of the ESA Mainstage 2000 production of Les Belle Souers by Michel Tremblay.

The stellar cast included (but was not limited to): Nicola Correia-Damude, Suzanne Smith, Nazneen Contractor, Katie Gordon, Deanna Palazzo, Lara Chatterjee, Frank Cox O’Connell, Cat Montgomery, Lorna Wright, and Margaret McBeath. Stage Managed by Emily Essert and ASM’d by Lauren Simmons.

(Apologies, I’ve not found a programme for the show and my memory is not what it used to be… I can remember these names with the help of Susan Bourne and some of you yourselves… I know the list should include some other equally fabulous young people).

FYI… I knew that this would be the first video I posted the moment I came across it last spring. Pure serendipity that I prepared this posting as I watched the pilot episode of Nicola’s new CBC series Burden of Truth. If you didn’t see it you missed a good one. Set your PVR for next week.

I have enjoyed all ESA Mainstages in the years I’ve been here but there was something about this show… it is still – after all these years – my absolute favourite. Perhaps because it was my first official Mainstage – my first full year teaching at ESA – and that I taught most of the cast members – and that they were such a phenomenal group of incredibly talented individuals who meshed so well together as an ensemble in this show…

ENJOY!
