Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko will visit Vancouver tomorrow as part of their 12-day Canadian tour.  The Emperor hasn't been here since 1953, when he came here on his first visit to a country outside of japan.

In May, Richard and I traveled to Montreal to attend the PACT AGM and Conference. It was an intense and stimulating few days, giving us the chance to connect with our colleagues across the country and spend some time visioning the Future of Canadian Theatre.

The Conference's keynote was Surviving the Culture Change by Diane Ragsdale. You can read her pertinent, thought-provoking message, and find some follow-up discussion from last week's Arts Summit in Vancouver here.

Last weekend, we held our annual summer Hootenanny, and it was a blast! Volunteers, staff, donors, and our creative collaborators all piled into Richard's backyard for a BBQ. It didn't rain, the cats provided much entertainment, there was a rousing game of croquet, there was oodles of food, we polished off a keg of beer and several bottles of wine, and much fun was had by all. The best part was the opportunity to get to know one another a little better. Thanks so much to everyone for coming out and frolicking with us!

After a fantastic run in Vancouver, John & Beatrice closed on Saturday, and our cast and some of our crew took off for Saskatoon. The show opens there tonight, and plays to a sold-out run, through May 31.

The show will be playing in a nearly-finished building, rather than a theatre, in order to accommodate the site-specific needs of the piece. Our projection designer Tim Matheson went along to recreate the window effect, filming the view out of a brand new window, this time with a prairie view instead of the mountains. Check out some of the footage here:
