Read all about what is going on at Pi here!

 

April 20, 2009

Pi Theatre depends on volunteers in many areas - production assistance, ushering, administration, fundraising expertise, marketing wizardry, tech support and board leadership, just to name a few. But these people don't just pitch in to get things done, they also offer moral support, and help us keep our energy up and our spirits high.

So, in honour of Volunteer Week, a great big THANK YOU to all of you - you know who you are, and we're thrilled you're there!

If you don't volunteer with Pi, give it some thought - we'd love to have you join our team. Just drop us a line.

Rehearsals for John & Beatrice started last week and we are all abuzz with excitement around here about this show.

We're happy to announce an Early Bird discount for the show: $5 off if you buy your tickets before April 30!

And, we did a photoshoot last week. Here are some of the best shots (all photos by Ken Bryant).

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.
