EARLE’S HALL LIVE
December 21st, 2012 at 7:00pm
Earle’s Hall Live is back with a holiday edition! Come witness many local heroes perform for you in Christmas Pageant form. Broadcasting live from Earle’s Hall upstairs onto the big screen in Kaffe 1870, catch a glimpse of the magic that Earle’s Hall has to offer. Anyone who has seen one of the previous productions will tell you what special events these are. Confirmed guests include Luther Wright + JJ Hardill + more…It’s gonna be a good one! A STO Union, WAC, Kaffe 1870 and Wakefest collaboration.
715 Riverside Drive, Wakefield Quebec.
We’ve worked with some really fantastic artists, companies and festivals this year, and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank them. The GCTC welcomed Two Little Birds (Ottawa) in February with and then it happens at their undercurrents festival (created through STO Union’s mentorship program), and then we went to Vienna’s Brut Koproduktionshaus with Intimacy and Epiphany. We came back to Wakefield for a may-day Earle’s Hall Live, and then to Ottawa to work with Two Little Birds on Conversations with Strangers which was performed at SubDevision, a site-specific theatre event. We swung back home for Wakefest, Wakefield’s multidisciplinary arts festival, with Everything’s For You and Virtual Bar Buddies. Meanwhile, we had a lovely time working on Everyone’s So Sensitive with our friends at The Chop Theatre (Vancouver), and we presented our newest piece Intimacy to a small invited audience in the grand Earle’s Hall. Thanks to all of the artists who came out to play, the Wakefield Art Collective (WAC) that contributes to almost everything, and a really big thank you to the numerous volunteers that came out to help. Thank you for making 2012 such a great year!
COMING UP IN 2013
Stay tuned for tours, new work (theatre and live art, and maybe an installation or two!), blog posts and tweeting. We might even be on Facebook shortly…if Nadia and George can get over their social media aversion. More info to follow in the new year. All the best from everyone at STO Union!
