As part of our front of house display for Bashir Lazhar, we had a Migration Map in the theatre lobby. Audiences were invited to place a pin in the map where their journeys began. Here are some shots of how it looked on closing night:

It was very interesting to see where there were clusters and where there were no pins!

Denis Dutton, a New Zealand philosopher, suggests that we have an 'art instinct', just like Steven Pinker has argued that we have an instinct for the development for language. His book, The Art Instinct: Beauty, Pleasure, and Human Evolution, proposes that our desire for beauty has an evolutionary explanation, a product of our struggle to survive and reproduce.  Apparently, art is one of the few things (along with language, religion, and social structures) found in all human cultures the world over.

Jo Ledingham of the Vancouver Courier was “struck by the courage of refugees” and “tremendously impressed by Marr's 70-minute solo performance. Marr is one of those rave-worthy virtuosic performers... incomparable. Bashir Lazhar feels distinctly Quebecois. That, in itself, may be reason enough to see it.”

Bashir Lazhar closes this Saturday - don't miss it!  Tickets at Tickets Tonight. There are shows each night from Tuesday-Saturday at 8PM, and there's a matinee on Saturday the 21st at 2PM.
