THE CANADA COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS GAVE SUSANNA FOURNIER 108000 AND SHE

first_imgSusanna Fournier inside Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, where The Scavenger’s Daughter, the second part of her Empire Trilogy, is being staged. (ANDREW FRANCIS WALLACE / TORONTO STAR) Advertisement Facebook Advertisement Advertisement In 2010, Susanna Fournier had a crisis of faith in the theatre, feeling frustrated by the limited opportunities she was seeing as an actor and playwright, so she spent the year writing three plays she considered unstageable in Toronto: weird, visually demanding, big casts, two acts, highly political and conceptually ambitious.Six years later she was having another crisis of faith, with a collection of unproduced plays and an injury limiting her movement, so she spent a sleepless week creating an application for the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter grant to celebrate Canada 150, as a last-ditch effort.On the day of the submission deadline, she moved to Berlin for five months with her collaborator ted witzel (who co-wrote the application with her and Leora Morris). Three weeks after she returned to Toronto, both crises were resolved in a letter granting her $108,000 to produce her “unstageable” Empire Trilogy. And in that moment, Fournier went from an underemployed artist to a Renaissance woman: to pull this off, she would need to become a playwright, an actor, a director, a producer, a fundraiser, a financial manager, an artistic director, a curator and morelast_img read more

REUTERS/Essam Al-Sudani A rocket struck the site of the residential and operations headquarters of several global major oil companies, including U.S. giant ExxonMobil, near Iraq’s southern city of Basra early on Wednesday, wounding three people, Iraq’s military said.There was no immediate claim of responsibility. It came after two separate attacks in as many days on bases housing U.S. military personnel in Iraq, as tension rose between the United States and Iran.The rocket hit the Burjesia site west of the city, according to police and a statement released by the military. Police earlier said two Iraqi workers were wounded.The United States evacuated hundreds of diplomatic staff from its Baghdad embassy last month, citing unspecified threats from Iran against U.S. interests in neighbouring Iraq, where Tehran supports some Shi’ite militias.Wednesday’s incident came just as Exxon staff who were also evacuated after the diplomats’ departure had begun to return to Basra.A security source said Exxon was evacuating 21 foreign staff immediately by plane to Dubai.Oil officials said operations including exports from southern Iraq were not affected by the incident.Other companies operating at the site include Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Italy’s Eni SpA, the oil officials said.The rocket was a short-range Katyusha missile, the military said. Police said it landed 100 metres from the part of the site used as a residence and operations centre by Exxon.Burjesia is near the Zubair oilfield operated by Eni.Washington has ramped up sanctions pressure on Iran in recent months and says it has sent additional forces to the region over tension with the Islamic Republic.It blames Tehran for attacks on tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week. Tehran denies it was involved.Both sides say they do not want war, but analysts warn such incidents could escalate violence in the region. <a href=’https://sp2.img.hsyaolu.com.cn/wp-shlf1314/2023/IMG2487.jpg” alt=”last_img” /> read more

Chilean director Patricio Guzmán to attend Rice Cinema for three films in

first_imgShareFranz [email protected] Rice Cinema will present six films by noted Chilean filmmaker Patricio Guzmán Nov. 10-19. Guzmán will attend three screenings during the first weekend of the retrospective series and will discuss the films with audience members.The series is open to the public and will be shown at Rice Cinema on the Rice University campus, 6100 Main St. For directions, go to www.rice.edu/maps/maps.html.The first film, “The Southern Cross,” is a historical documentary about the religious conquest of Latin America and how Catholicism has evolved in the region. It will be shown Nov. 10 at 7 p.m.Guzmán’s “Robinson Crusoe Island/My Jules Verne” will screen at 7 p.m. Nov. 11. It depicts the director’s personal quest to find the island on which Daniel Defoe’s 18th-century sailor was shipwrecked. Guzmán also includes frequent references to the 19th-century French writer Jules Verne, whose fantastic novels influenced him as a child.The third film, “Nostalgia for the Light,” is a poetic documentary about Chile’s Atacama Desert. Astronomers are drawn to the Atacama, one of the driest places on Earth, but it was also used as a dumping ground for opponents’ bodies during the military dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet. “Nostalgia for the Light” is a film about the universe, man’s place in it, history and memory. It begins at 7 p.m. Nov. 12.The following weekend, “Madrid,” a short, personal look at the Spanish capital, is paired with “Chile Obstinate Memory.” Screening will begin at 7 p.m. Nov. 18. In the second film, the director returns to his native country with a copy of his award-winning trilogy, “The Battle of Chile,” and discovers the strange relation his nation has to history under a dictatorship.The final film, “Salvador Allende,” returns to the topic Guzmán is most associated with: politics. It addresses the myths and the facts of the ousted president’s tenure and attempts to see the events of Allende’s life and death with a clear, uncompromised eye. It will screen at 7 p.m. Nov. 19.All films will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles.General admission tickets cost $11; tickets for students and senior citizens cost $9.To purchase tickets in advance, visit https://sp2.img.hsyaolu.com.cn/wp-shlf1314/2023/IMG7396.jpg” alt=”last_img” /> read more
