Art and Innovation: Traditional Arctic Footwear

327 Bloor Street West

At the top of the world, the Arctic seems harsh and inhospitable, yet over forty distinct culture groups have thrived there for centuries. Among the most beautiful and innovative is the diverse footwear and clothing created to meet environmental challenges and express culture meanings. Drawing from the BSM's extensive circumpolar holdings and building upon information gathered during the Museum-sponsored field research trips to all Arctic nations, Art and Innovation showcases a vast variety of footwear, garments and tools, highlighting the artistry and ingenuity of the makers, and revealing different cultural identities, crafting techniques and spiritual meanings.

Swan Lake

111 Mercedes

One of the supreme achievements of 19th century classicism, Swan Lake has remained, since its premiere in Moscow in 1877, one of the most enduringly fascinating, beloved and iconic ballets. For many it is simply the ne plus ultra of the classical ballet aesthetic. The extraordinary range of emotional and thematic possibilities that the ballet provides, the opportunities it presents for both technical virtuosity and generous, heartfelt lyricism, its simultaneous embrace of both mythical and real worlds and the incomparable beauty of Tchaikovsky's score all combine to make it a ballet experience like no other.

A Streetcar Named Desire

111 Mercedes

One of the best-known and most canonical of American stage plays - and equally esteemed as a film - Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire is adapted for dance with daring and sensitivity by choreographer John Neumeier. In his 1983 ballet version of the play, Mr. Neumeier is less concerned with simply retelling the precise narrative details of the original than with using the famous story of Blanche Dubois as a way of exploring themes of memory, madness and desire.

Struggle & Story: Canada in Print - Fisher Library Sesquicentennial Exhibition

120 St. George Street, Toronto, ON

The documents in this exhibition – manuscripts, printed books, engravings, and photographs – tell the story behind the making of a nation and the hope that is a constituent part of our national character – a character born as a result of struggle. Since that character is partially determined by what we are not – neither European nor American – these documents also reflect our ongoing endeavour to define ourselves for ourselves. In the 150 years since Confederation, much has indeed changed, but much remains very much the same. We are still a nation of immigrants, a place where compromise and accommodation are the keys to our prosperity and stability, making us the envy of so many other less fortunate places on the planet.

Midsummer (a play with songs)

Midsummer’s weekend in Edinburgh. It’s raining. Bob’s a failing car salesman on the fringes of the city’s underworld. Helena’s a high-powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people’s husbands. She’s totally out of his league. He’s not her type at all. They absolutely should not sleep together. Which is, of course, why they do. Midsummer is the hilarious story of a great lost weekend of ill-advised romance: bridge-burning, car chases, wedding bust-ups, midnight trysts, poignant pop songs, honest humour, and self-loathing hangovers.

Tirgan Festival

235 Queens Quay West Toronto, Ontario Canada M5J 2G8

Perhaps the singular characteristic that distinguishes Persians from other ancient cultures at the dawn of civilization is the nomadic nature of a multicultural, pluralist society that culminated in the flatland of Iran. Benevolence, the unifying and principal thesis underlying the ancient cylinder of Cyrus the Great, heralded a major turning point for humanity. The elegant simplicity of Benevolence was the essential currency to help small, nomadic tribes in their struggle for survival. Good thoughts that would lead to good utterances to achieve good deeds. Tirgan celebrates this historical tradition and the richness and diversity of Iranian culture.

Eaton's Goes to War

55 John Street

The First World War transformed Canada. During that war, 3,327 Eaton's employees enlisted to fight. Each time one of them was shipped overseas, a photo was displayed prominently in the Toronto store just steps from Mackenzie House. 2,000 of these portraits survived and have become part of the T. Eaton Company records at the Archives of Ontario. In commemoration of Canada's 150th birthday, Mackenzie House staff have been actively searching out accounts of the lives of these men and urging the public to come forward to share their stories of the soldiers with us. Who were these men and their families? Come to our exhibit and find out. This exhibit is presented as part of TO Canada with Love, the City of Toronto's year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions honouring Canada's 150th birthday.

Back by popular demand from the 2015/16 season! Rebecca Northan’s hit show returns to the Tarragon after playing off-Broadway, in London’s West End, and across Canada, including a sold-out run here at Tarragon Theatre last September. When Mimi’s date for the evening fails to show up, she turns to the audience for someone brave enough to answer Love’s call. What happens next is anybody’s guess, and different each night. This unscripted, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants adventure is one saucy, daring and entertaining evening out. “Fearless, and very funny” – New York Times “Irresistible…a cheeky and charming evening.” – New York Daily News “Utterly enchanting“ – Time Out New York
