  • Critipeg: In Water

  • Born to move

    When Ian Mozdzen entered the School of Contemporary Dancers at the age of 34 with no prior formal training, it was a transition, to say the least.

  • Taking appropriation out of the recipe

    The cookbook is a fixture of the kitchen as much as any edible ingredient. A new exhibit at the PLATFORM Centre for Photographic and Digital Arts asks those who use the culinary tomes to engage with other cultures to consider their impact and authority.

  • Reinventing the ring

    Attending your first professional wrestling match is a bit like attending a Rocky Horror Picture Show screening.

    You have to see it live. You can never fully anticipate it. And, often, it’s best to go in blind.

  • A marketing ‘mastermind’

    With 2023 finally in the rearview, it appears that it was a year brimming with reimaginings. Pop-culturally, the year felt bombastic, an undeniable response to years shrouded in uncertainty and despondence.

  • Dread who’s coming to dinner

    Dinner parties can be a social minefield on a good evening. A festive atmosphere combined with expected decorum and free-flowing wine can be a recipe for disaster – which makes it all the more relieving, and amusing, when one can step back and simply watch it unfold.

  • Local film and television production a ‘growth industry’

    If you’re a Manitoban interested in showbiz, 2024 might be your year.

  • Coming soon to a theatre near you and a galaxy far, far away

    On Dec. 18, Star Wars fans were greeted with a surprise announcement. This time, though, it wasn’t just another spinoff movie slated for development or a new line of action figures.

  • Signs of the times

    Like most cities, Winnipeg’s buildings tell a story about its past. Well, maybe it’s not a single story with a clearly defined arc.

  • Eulogy for a ‘Shy Guy’
