The Creator’s Sacrifice

“The Creator’s Sacrifice” is a cycle of 17 paintings that tell the Easter story as imagined by Ovide Bighetty, a self-taught Cree artist from northwestern Manitoba who paints in the Woodland Cree tradition. They are remarkable for their colour and vibrancy. 

Take a look at this Kisemanito poster, and you’ll see what I mean.

All 17 paintings will be in Ottawa for a two week exhibit, March 23 – April 6th, at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church in Sandy Hill. For anyone interested in the intersection of spirituality and art, or aboriginal art and Christian spirituality, this show is not to be missed.

“The god Monologues”

2013-03-12-GodMonologuesPoster-Blog

The cast has been hard at work since the beginning of February and “The god Monologues” is taking shape. It is going to be engaging, honest, thought-provoking, and fun!

So… what are your questions about religion and spirituality? Is there a God? What is religion? Does prayer work? Does faith affect values? Does spirituality influence actions? Is there only one true religion?

If you resonate with any of these questions, then you’ll want to come see “The god Monologues.”

Here’s what you’ll experience: A cast of young adult actors exploring profound issues of faith, spirituality, belief and values using their own words, and the words of their peers. This is documentary theatre, drawn from real life, exploring real life issues.

Under the able direction of Eleanor Crowder and Anna Lewis, the cast of committed amateur actors have been stretching themselves for six weeks now, as they have explored the breadth of contemporary spirituality among young adults. With two weeks to go, the pressure is on and we’ve doubled the number of rehearsals each week. The result is going to be terrific theatre, and a meaningful exploration of some of life’s most profound and persistent questions.

Sunday, March 24th,
