Last year’s pick of the Fringe is packed with clever dialogue, grindhouse music and just enough violence to pay homage to this Reservoir Dog of a filmmaker. Director Dave Morris is a “master of his art” and his “approach to improv is sophisticated” — TIMES COLONIST. ★★★★

Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen Lecture and Workshop – C.G. Jung Society

Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen Lecture and Workshop  (C.G. Jung Society)
Alix Goolden Hall and Wood Hall
Lecture: Sept 26th at 7pm       Workshop: Sept 27th at 10am

jeanbolen21Lecture – The Meaning We Make of the Numinous
Coming into the world with the capacity for awe and wonder, we are receptive to the numinous, and have worshiped divinity in countless forms throughout the millennia. A profound sense of connection and meaning often accompanies the numinous and is Gnostic rather than intellectual. It is a spiritual encounter achieved through active imagination, dreams and physical revelations. Friday, Sept 26th, 7pm – 9pm. Alix Goolden Hall 907 Pandora Ave.

Regular tickets are $40 (plus service charge).

Workshop – Path With Soul, Path With Heart: the Inner Compass

Jean Bolen invites us to remember and connect with our inner compass. The awakening of conscious awareness allows us to trust in knowledge coming to us in the midst of a potentially terminal illness. It may be heart chakra information: what our heart knows is true for us. The most difficult experiences may be opportunities to align with soul – opportunities to recognize the divine spark in others and ourselves. Saturday, Sept 27th, 10am – 3:15pm. Wood Hall 900 Johnson St.

Baby With Bathwater

Baby With Bathwater by Christopher Durang
Theatre Inconnu       Oct 2 – 18, 2014

BABY WITH BATHWATERBaby with Bathwater defies description. It begins as a comedic roller-coaster ride through a madhouse of parenting nightmares, and just when we have forgotten that there might actually be a little person at the root of Helen and John’s struggles, Durang thrusts us into the wake of their misguided voyage; and we find ourselves watching the world from the identify-challenged perspective of their
reproductive accomplishment: the child whose name never quite sticks. Durang manages to simultaneously enthrall and appall with joyful abandon. Cringes and belly-laughter topple one on top of the other, with the unlikely consequence of revealing a deep sense of reverence for the family ties that bind. This is an irresistible outing with an absurd genius of a writer.

“Christopher Durang is one of the funniest dramatists alive, and one of the most sharply satiric. This time, parenthood is the target.” The New Yorker

Original Ghost Bus Tours        October 18, 24, 25, 29, 30

ghost_bus_tours_logo_72_dpiOriginal Ghost Bus Tours have been showcasing Victoria’s most haunted places for the past twenty-one years. They are developed and conducted by well-known historian and ghost storyteller, John Adams, on behalf of the Old Cemeteries Society as one of the society’s major fundraisers. They are two-hour excursions in the dark in the comfort of a luxury coach. Routes are different each year and there will be two stops for on-site ghost hunting. No special effects but lots of spooky stories. Suitable for children, but stories are geared for adults.

Open seating. If you are with a group arrive early to claim seats together. There will be two brief stops where participants are invited to disembark for some on-site ghost hunting. They have the option to remain on the bus. The bus is equipped with a washroom. No rest stops are scheduled.

Please note, the venue (Oak Bay Marina parking lot) is not the real venue, but the starting and ending place only. Free parking is available at the Oak Bay Marina.

Alice

Alice a musical by Tom Waits       Theatre Inconnu       Dec 4 – 20, 2014

ALICETom Waits is one of the most influential singer/composers of the late 20th century, and continues to inspire and challenge listeners to the present day. Created by Waits in collaboration with Kathleen Brennan, and playwright and renowned translator Paul Schmidt, this musical, inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is not often produced, and yet the music and script are both exquisitely crafted. The jumping off point for the story is the relationship between Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) and his supposed muse, Alice Liddell. A number of the more familiar episodes from the Alice stories are reworked and many of Lewis’ more imaginative characters are presented. Theatre Inconnu once more joins forces more with Victoria’s own musical renegades, The Party on High Street; who so dynamically contributed to Love Kills, the Musical (2010).

“Waits, and Schmidt invite us to be Alice: to face the mirror, and to consider what it means (if anything) to be seen and unseen. For the characters in Alice, after all, that is both the question and the answer.” Theatre Journal
