66 – LIVE from the Art Gallery of Alberta w. The HIVE Youth Council & Dara Armsden

Let’s talk about art! And let’s do it at the Art Gallery of Alberta!

This episode consists of two conversations: one with the HIVE Youth Council & one with the head of Education and Learning at the AGA: Dara Armsden.

Both conversations try to answer the question: what is our relationship with art, as producers and as consumers? We discuss where to find new artistic inspiration, the Edmonton art community, and the blocks that impede our engagement with art.

65 – Theatre Design w. Sofia Lukie

Theatrical designer Sofia Lukie is here to talk all about exactly that!

We break theatre design down into some broad categories – lighting, sound, set, costumes, projections – in order to discuss what makes these elements work & what makes them fall flat. We chat about our own personal design tendencies and how designers adapt for modern audiences; the ones who require more than just smoke machines and a spotlight to get their butts into the theatres’ seats.

64 – Top 5 Memorable Video Games w. Liam Coady

Liam Coady returns to tell us his top 5 most memorable video games!

We each brought a list of 5 memorable games from our past; not best, not even good, just games that we have a distinct memory of playing for whatever reason. Plus all the honourable mentions that we add in along the way. Get ready for some deep cuts (and some not-so deep ones).

Make sure to follow Liam on Instagram and Twitter to get all the updates to his professional going-ons.

53 – Art, Representation, & Realism w. Patrick Higgins

Artist Patrick Higgins is with us to talk all about his art and his upcoming new show On the Green Seesaw.

We discuss the tension between realism & representation when creating a static image; we go over Patrick’s history as an artist; we also break down the ways in which you can create an engaged audience by obscuring features of your subject. All cool stuff.

50 – Acting w. Quinn Hinch

The one and only Quinn Hinch joins us from across the Interwebs to talk all about his experience as an actor!

We’ll be discussing performances, acting on screen vs. on stage, and the social value of learning to act (which is all just tactically using empathy & imagination). Not to mention all of the weirdness that comes with being in a production city like Vancouver vs. a lively, yet contained scene like Edmonton.
