Magical performances and enthralling art camps on deck, March 16-22
There is plenty on offer for ‘stay-cationers’ keeping it local this March Break. Confederation Centre of the Arts is staging a night of wonder from world-renowned magician Justin Flom on Saturday, March 16 as well as a week’s worth of fun visual arts classes for kids in the Gallery.
Justin Flom has toured the world and performed on marquee programs such as Ellen, The Today Show, and the late night talk show circuit. From touring and collaborating with superstars like Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, John Legend, and Nick Jonas, Flom finds himself in front of as diverse an audience range as any entertainer out there today.
The Las Vegas native has the ability to entertain anyone, anywhere, and is bringing his act for all ages to the Centre for a night of illusions and wonder! Presented as part of Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre the magician hits the Homburg Theatre on March 16 at 7:30 p.m.
Following the entertainment on the stage, it’s time to explore the visual arts! The Confederation Centre Art Gallery’s mARTch Break camp in the Schurman Family Studio presents a chance for children explore the inspiring world of visual arts. These hands-on art activities are offered in many mediums–encouraging critical thinking and visual literacy through tours of the current exhibitions in the Gallery.
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
