– A NIGHT OF COLOUR –

This November we are partnering with the Hillside Festival and the University of Guelph CSA to present two fantastic nights of cinema and music (Nov 10th & 11th).

Like pairing fine wine and cheese, we’ve worked hard to pair a documentary with the best live music. You can attend the film and concert seperately, but we suggest making a night of it and doing both!

THE FILM

Synopsis

“Once upon a time, a tiny town in Tuscany turned its life into a play…”

Several decades ago, a tiny town perched on a hill in Tuscany came up with a unique solution to the problems they were facing. They got together and worked on turning their lives into a play, allowing them to creatively and openly talk about issues and create resolutions. The singular experiment soon became a tradition that continues to this day. Every year, for the past 50 years, their piazza becomes their stage and villagers from 6 to 90 play a part – the role of themselves. This process has brought to light various struggles and challenges they face, both as individuals and as a collective community. In this village theatre isn’t just art, it’s a way of life.

THE BAND

Timber Timbre

Synopsis

Timber Timbre is a Canadian band with members hailing from Toronto and Montreal. Their swampy, folksy music suggests a flare for the dramatic, making the perfect pairing for a documentary about the limits of drama.
