Free Will Astrology by Rob Brezsny • Week of August 22

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you’re going to do wild and brave and unexpected things, make sure they are rooted in your vigorous response to primal rhythms, not in a drunken surrender to weakness or ignorance. I’m all for you losing your oppressive selfcontrol, but not the healthy kind of self-control. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When is the last time you

did a real-life experiment, like when you try out an unfamiliar experience to see if it appeals to you? Now would be an excellent time to expose yourself to a few what-ifs like that. You’re overdue to have your eyes opened, your limits stretched, and your mind blown. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): To help take the edge off the darkness you have been wrestling with, I offer you these lines from a poem by Kay Ryan: “The day misspent, / the love misplaced, / has inside it / the seed of redemption. / Nothing is exempt / from resurrection.” In other words, whatever has disappeared from your

HOHO North Pole

Henry Hudson sailed to America and came upon what we now call Coney Island. Back then it was a barren spit of sand whose main inhabitants were rabbits. By the early 20th century, there were three sprawling amusement parks packed into its two square miles. 2014 could feature your own Henry Hudson moment: a time when you will discover virgin territory that will ultimately become an extravagant playground.

life will probably return later in a new form. The wrong turns you made may lead you to a fresh possibility. CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Human beings are often unable to receive because we do not know what to ask for,” says Malidoma Somé in his book Water and Spirit. “We are sometimes unable to get what we need because we do not know what we want.” Hear my two pleas: first, that in the next six weeks, you will work diligently to identify the goodies you want most; and second, that you will cultivate your capacity to receive the goodies you want most by refining your skill at asking for them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “If men had wings and bore black feathers, few of them would be clever enough to be crows,” said 19th-century social reformer Henry Ward Beecher. I don’t think it will be true for Sagittarians. Your animal intelligence will be working even better than usual. Your instinctual inclinations are likely to serve as reliable guides to wise action. Trust what your body tells you! You will definitely be clever enough to be a crow.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Julia Morgan (1872-1957) was the first woman licensed as an architect in California. She designed more than 700 buildings and thrived both financially and artistically. One key to her success was her humility. “Don’t ever turn down a job because it’s beneath you,” she advised. That’s a helpful message. You can’t possibly know ahead of time how important it might ultimately be to apply yourself conscientiously to a seemingly small assignment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Can you guess what combination of colours makes the most vivid visual impact? Psychologists say it’s black on yellow. Together they arrest the eye. They activate a readiness to respond. It’s time for you to draw the best kind of attention to yourself. You have a right and a duty to galvanize people with the power of your presence.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): One of Beethoven’s music teachers said, “As a composer, he is hopeless.” When Thomas Edison was a kid, a teacher told him he was “too stupid to learn anything.” Walt Disney worked at a newspaper when he was young, but his editor fired him because “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” I’m happy to report that 2014 will be the best year ever for neutralizing and overcoming that naysayer’s curse.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Here’s the advice that Dan Albergotti gives in his poem “Things to Do in the Belly of the Whale.” “Count the ribs,” he says. “Look up for blue sky through the spout. Make small fires with the broken hulls of fishing boats. Practise smoke signals. Call old friends. Organize your calendar. Dream of the beach. Review each of your life’s ten million choices. Find the evidence of those before you. Listen for the sound of your heart. Be thankful you are here, swallowed with all hope, where you can rest and wait.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): As a child, French philosopher and writer Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) loved math. But his father, who homeschooled him, forced him to concentrate on the humanities. Blaise rebelled. When he was 12, he locked himself in his room for days and immersed himself in mathematical investigations. When he emerged, he had figured out some of Euclid’s fundamental theorems about geometry. Seal yourself away from other people’s opinions about who you’re supposed to be, and explore the themes that will be crucial for the person you are becoming.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do you prefer to pick the tests you take, making sure they’re good fits for the precise lessons you want to master? Or do you find it more exciting and adventurous to let fate determine what unpredictable tests get sent your way? Ruminate about these matters, Pisces. You’re due for a nice big test sometime soon, and it’s in your interest to help shape and define how everything unfolds.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 1609,

Reflected fame Project Limelight, supported by the late Cory Monteith, presents playful take of Mirror, Mirror By Sabrina Furminger

I

t’s a rainy Saturday morning in mid December. Inside a multi-purpose room on the ground floor of Strathcona Community Centre, 16 Eastside kids and half a dozen adults are converging under the fluorescent lights. “The house lights go down for the overture,” director Paul Belanger calls out in a booming voice to the kids, who are gathered behind chairs that represent the wings of a stage. Even in rehearsal, their excitement — and jitters — are palpable. “Overture Mirror, Mirror runs for ends, then lights up on the two performances on fairy in front.” January 12 at at SFU The play in question Woodward’s (149 is Mirror, Mirror, Project W. Hastings). Tickets Limelight’s Snow Whiteare $10/$15 at inspired pantomime. ProjectLimelight.ca. The rehearsal comes to a natural pause after an hour, when the kids turn their attention to tables of healthy food and reusable dishware that have been stealthily set up by several adult volunteers. It’s this combination of performing arts and nourishment that has made Project Limelight an Eastside fixture since it was first established by sisters Maureen Webb and Donalda Weaver less than two years ago. The show biz veterans wanted to do some good following the death of their mother. Their mission: to provide a free performing arts program to Eastside kids and equip them with all of the benefits of the arts: self-confidence; community; responsibility; imagination; mentorship; fun. “We see remarkable change in some of the kids, and we see how joyous it is,” says Webb. “It’s working wonders.” The program runs three sessions per year, during which kids ages eight to 15 meet several times a week to prepare for a show, guided in their pursuit by an impressive team of industry pros. Project Limelight has benefited from enthusiastic private and corporate support. Its earliest supporter was none other than Sir Richard Branson. “[Branson] set the tone,” says Weaver. “What he did for us

was just amazing. It wouldn’t have mattered how much it was that he gave us. It was just the fact that he believed in us, and he believed in our model.” But Project Limelight has also been touched by tragedy. It found itself in the international spotlight this past summer when its most high-profile advocate, Glee star Cory Monteith, died of an accidental overdose in a Vancouver hotel room. Monteith had publicly and passionately supported Project Limelight, and his death brought an unexpected wave of support for the organization. “That word bittersweet comes up. It’s hard to talk about it in a way of being grateful, but it’s been tremendous as far as what it’s done for shining a light on us,” says Webb, a friend of Monteith’s since the early days of his career. “Cory brought us into the spotlight anyway. That was his goal, and he did a great job of that, and how it affected us personally is we’re just incredibly saddened.” In the immediate aftermath of Monteith’s death, his family named Project Limelight as one of three organizations to which donations could be made in his memory. In October, Fox and Columbia Records donated all of the proceeds from Glee’s tribute episode’s iTunes sales to Project Limelight. “We became a place where his fans could reach out and tell us how sad they were, and how happy they were that he supported us,” says Webb, describing a group of girls who bought a star in his memory and then wrote to tell her all about it. “The letters, and the emails, they’re still coming in.” The week before he died, Monteith dined with Webb and his agent Elena Kirschner at East of Main Café, the sisters’ East Georgia restaurant above which Project Limelight is based. Though a separate, for-profit entity, East of Main has fed into Project Limelight in two ways, donating its profits and also supplying the food for its rehearsals. This support should continue for the future, even though East of Main will be “taking a hiatus” for the month of January. Says Webb: “We’re trying to re-energize and figure out a way that we can become a more viable source of income for Project Limelight; we have no intention of letting it go.” January, though, is mainly about the actors and Mirror, Mirror: first rehearsing, then performing, and, finally, rejoicing in a job well done. “The greatest moment for me as a director is to see their faces on stage and see what we’ve done for them,” says Belanger as lunch winds down and the cast preps for the second half of rehearsal. “This stuff changes people’s lives.

Lighten up, why don’t you The season of indulgence is over but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy rich-tasting foods with fewer calories

Follow Me Foodie

S

by Mijune Pak

o you ate one too many holiday cookies, or tripled up on those turkey dinners? You might have gained a few pounds, but you enjoyed your holiday. Nothing wrong with that. We’ve all pulled up our jeans thinking “please tell me I just washed these” (this is why I prefer forgiving dresses), but investing in a whole new wardrobe isn’t the solution. Healthy eating tends to be associated with vegetarian restaurants and juice bars, but those options don’t necessarily mean “healthy”. Don’t get me wrong — they are healthier options than steakhouses and fast food, but it depends what you order. I’m not the person to go to for diet advice and I’m really not a diet fan. I’m also not the type to suggest a salad when you really want a burger. They’re not even close. People tend to jump to vegetarian, no carbs, no gluten, or simply deprivation when they think of healthy eating, which is natural, but here are recommendations for those who want their cake and eat it too. The indulgence: Eggs Benedict The best and the “worst” part of an eggs Benny is the rich buttery hollandaise that goes on top; getting eggs Benedict without it would be ludicrous. The healthier alternative: Fable Kitchen offers eggs Benedicts with Olive Oil Hollandaise with your choice of ham, smoked trout, or spinach. It’s like a lighter hollandaise sauce and you can taste the fruitiness of the olive oil. It’s an excellent alternative that doesn’t feel like a sacrifice. The indulgence: Moules et frites It’s the perfect time of year for them, but French fries

and mussels swimming in creamy broth won’t necessarily get you back in pre-holiday clothes. Mind you, not all broths are creamy, but you might have to give up the fries. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up the potatoes. The healthier alternative: Rosemary Smoked Mussels, Pickled Garlic, Fennel and Cress and Sieglinde Potatoes with Pickled Garlic and Marjoram from Burdock & Co. It’s not “moules et frites”, but it is excellent. It is actually two separate dishes. The mussels don’t come in a broth, but they’re naturally juicy and tastefully smoky. The potatoes are unassuming and they’re potatoes you feel great about eating. Also try the Caramelized Sunchoke Terrine, which is another healthy option. The indulgence: Indian food Butter chicken, pakora (fried vegetables), and creamy curries don’t scream healthy, but Vancouver’s idea of authentic Indian food is skewed and limited. Home-cooked Indian food is much healthier than the restaurant-style curries which are typically made with a lot of cream. There is not a lot of selections for healthy north Indian food in the city, so that’s when you look south. The healthier alternative: Southern Indian food is very different than Northern Indian food. It is more vegetable- and seafood-based and the dishes are often lighter. Chutney Villa Fine South Indian Cuisine healthier options include Nandu Puttu — crab tossed with coconut, roasted spices, and a hint of lime — and Manga Thenga Sundal — green mango, coconut, and chickpeas. Both appetizers are hard to find in Vancouver which makes them extra special here. See Mijune on CityTV’s Breakfast Television talking about her first event of 2014; her 6 Course Discourse is on January 20 at the Edgewater Casino. This Dine Out Vancouver Festival featured event is one of the hottest tickets this year. Made for serious “foodies” and chefs, the event offers culinary talks from six of Vancouver’s most honoured chefs, and a BC wine and canapé standing reception from some of the city’s finest restaurants.

Vancouver gets three hits in Chowzters awards

M

ijune Pak is one of the featured “chief Chowzters” on Chowzter.com, “an international community of food experts around the globe.” She was asked to nominate some of her Vancouver picks for the website’s North American Tastiest Fast Feasts Awards. After a group of panelists poured over the 200 nominations, three of Mijune’s picks were included in the Top 50:

Duck Confit Cassoulet at Le Parisien “I could taste the sharp white cheddar cheese and also a more pungent gruyere which gave it a salty nutty flavour easily mistaken for Parmesan.”

WEVancouver.com

Aburi Salmon Oishi at Minami “Pressed local salmon, jalapeno, and miku sauce. It’s a creamy, savoury, rich, buttery and moist salmon sushi with freshly cracked black pepper and a slight crunch of heaty jalapeno. The sushi rice is even good alone.”

The Porker at Pig on the Street “Double smoked bacon, sage and apple sausage stuffing, homemade chutney, goat Gouda, house-made caramelized onion mayo, and greens all wrapped up in their handmade flatbread. This flatbread is made in-house using flour milled by a flour peddler on the back of his exercise bike.”

Fresh Sheet

Local Food & Drink Happenings by Anya Levykh

THE DISH Now that the holidays are officially over, and our wallets feel slightly less stuffed, the need for comfort is greater than ever. I found mine the other night at Los Cuervos, the small tacqueria and cantina that opened in the old Che Baba space at 603 Kingsway. The team behind it are Les Faux Bourgeois owners Andreas Seppelt and Stephan Gagnon, along with their long-time chef, Gilles L’Heureux, who himself spent over half a decade living and working in Mexico City. Sitting just a few doors away from its sister resto, Los Cuervos focuses on the

humble taco, but, unlike most other tacquerias in the city that serve their goods on a three-inch-wide double-walled, these come on single six-inch corn tortillas that fold perfectly over onto themselves, meaning less mess and better handling. Try the Alambre, a rich bison skirt steak topped with bacon, melted cheese, onion and peppers, or the Cochinta Pibil, a Yucatan pulled pork with red onions. Daily specials one night included an outstanding tamarind-glazed pork belly with crackling. There are also vegetarian options, like the outstanding mixed mushrooms with huitlacoche (a Mexican truffle) sauce. At around $3.50 each, you can certainly try most of the 10 taco options without breaking the bank. Just leave room for the flautas ($5 each), crispy rolled tacos stuffed with duck, sweet potato and feta. LosCuervos.ca

SCENE | HEARD Fraîche in West Vancouver served its last dinner on December 31, 2013. It was named one of the top 10 new restaurants in 2008 when it opened, and recognized as being one of the best restaurants on the North Shore. Best wishes to the staff and owners. Vancouver International Wine Festival tickets are now on sale. Running from February 24 to March 2, this year’s collection of seminars, dinners, tastings and other events focuses around the theme country of France, with a global focus on bubbly. VanWineFest.ca Ganache Patisserie in Yaletown has expanded its retail space at 1262 Homer Street with a larger seating area, and an expanded croissant and coffee menu. GanacheYaletown.com Canada’s first Pappa Roti franchise is expected to open later this month at 1505 Robson. The glazed, coffeecarmel coated pastries are called the “father of all buns” from Malaysia. It will also feature specialty teas and JJ Bean coffee. PappaRoti.ca.

DRINK | DINE Vancouver Farmers Markets are presenting their second annual Food Truck Fest during the month of January at the Winter Farmers Market at Nat Bailey Stadium every Saturday. Look for almost 20 trucks to be on hand, as well as covered seating and live music. EatLocal.org Haggis is, let’s say, an acquired taste. And not everyone wants to acquire it.

scotch, Irish whiskey, bourbon and wine in honour of Scottish poet Robbie Burns’ bri, it will be serving cheese instead. It’s at Stewart Stephenson Modern Art Gallery on Robson on January 22 from 6 to 8p. Tickets are $45 at HouseWine.ca Dine Out Vancouver is almost upon us, with over 200 restaurants offering their prix fixe deals starting January 17. Don’t forget all the special events that will be happening throughout the two-week festival. Here are my top picks for culinary adventure: • East Van Craft Brew and Culinary Tour: Vancouver Brewery Tours and Off the Eaten Track are joining forces to take you on a three-hour tour through some of East Van’s best breweries and restaurants. $65 • WE’s own Follow Me Foodie, Mijune Pak, presents 6 Course Discourse, an interactive evening of food, wine and conversation with six of Vancouver’s top chefs: John Bishop, Hamid Samilian, Vikram Vij, Owen Lightly, Tina Fineza and Scott Jaegar. January 20; $50. • Street Food City is back for its third year, with 23 food trucks on rotation over a five-day period. Expect up to 15 trucks each day on the North Plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Free admission, but you have to pay for the food. Full details on these and other events at DineOutVancouver.com.

Mexican wine: the Napa of Baja Kurtis Kolt confirms that Mexico is as serious about wine as we are in BC

City Cellar by Kurtis Kolt

I

just came back from a couple weeks in Mexico and am quite excited about 2014. We’ll learn more about the BC Liquor Policy Review that the province is looking to implement, and see how many of the proposed changes, such as liquor in grocery stores and happy hours, will roll out. And I’m looking forward to travelling to Chile, Germany and Washington State to dive deep into their respective vineyards and wineries, and of course seeing what the new year spells for the world of BC wine. But I put in a fair amount of energy into exploring Mexican wines while I was there. Seriously; stay with me here. Just as many people around the world are surprised there are good wines to be had from Canada, the same goes for Mexico. The main reason for this is volume — there’s simply not that much to go around. In fact, their production is currently around two million cases, which is roughly the same level as British Columbia’s current output. They’ve been at it a tad longer though; Spanish settlers planted vines in the 16th century. In fact, Mexico has been producing wine longer than any other country in the Americas. While 90 per cent of their production comes from the Baja Peninsula (which enjoys a similar climate

to Napa), a high concentration of calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium in their soil has been known to occasionally add a slight ‘salty’ character to their wines, often making them a bit of an acquired taste. While I found a good dose of Viogniers, Chenin Blancs, Merlots and Syrahs that were quite impressive, the availability of Mexican wine in our market is quite scarce. In saying that, I was able to track down one label I’d quite enjoyed: L.A. Cetto Nebbiolo | Baja California, Mexico | $30-ish | Private Wine Stores While I, and wine fans, may immediately think Barolo or Barbaresco when the Nebbiolo grape is mentioned, I was quite pleased to find many of the typical aromas and flavours you’d find back in Italy here, from tar and roses to dried fruit and chocolate. The style definitely leans ‘New World’ though, a little more ripe, generous fruit and a mouthfeel that’s quite rich and velvety. Grilled meats, wild mushrooms and very big wine glasses will serve it well. You can track a bottle down at Brewery Creek on Main Street, the Liberty Wines outlets at Granville Island and Park Royal in West Van, and a handful of other private stores.

Forage meets Meyer Family Vineyards Atop my inbox upon my return was a note about a pretty cool event, allowing you to discover why I’m often keen to recommend the wines of Meyer Family Vineyards of Okanagan Falls. On January 15 at 6pm, winery owner JAK Meyer will be presenting a “side by side” single vineyard sampling, including their Gold Medal Reimer Vineyard Pinot Noir and Platinum Medal McLean Creek Road Chardonnay, alongside a four-course feast at Forage on Robson Street. I’ve long been a fan of Chef Chris Whittaker’s hyper-local, sustainable fare; it should dovetail quite nicely with Meyer’s bright, elegant wines. The whole thing’s just 65 bucks plus tax and tip. Track down tickets, and quick, at ForageVancouver.com. — Kurtis Kolt

rant/rave

moment they see me, but after years of this kind of bullshit it gets really tiring and it’s extremely hurtful to me as a human being. Just today I was ascending the escalator at a downtown Skytrain station where perhaps 100 or more commuters were going about during the noon hour rush and some woman grabbed her purse and switched it from one arm to the next and then walked as far away from me as she could. Shit like this happens to me often and while I dress in clean fresh clothes, am well groomed and I use enough deoderant, toothpaste and mouthwash, soap and skin care products so that I won’t stink or have bad breath and look creepy I can really sympathize with other ethnic minorities, people with disabilities and ‘Average Joes and Plain Janes’ who have dealt with this same racist/bigoted bullshit for years. Do I really need to wear a big sign on my chest that says, ‘I am a respectable, law-abiding person. I won’t rape you, kill you, steal your belongings, or try to sell you drugs in spite of my plus-sized, ethnic appearance’? How about a new year’s resolution? Take your noses out of the air and try and treat everyone, regardless of who they are, their ethnicity, appearance, religious affiliation, and what level of the social/economic ladder they come from, and treat them as you would wish to be treated, otherwise known as the Golden Rule. You might even make a good friend who will be there when you need him/her if you take up my challenge. Leslie Benisz

power line tree pruning and hazard tree removals vancouver When: December 2, 2013 to March 17, 2014 Time: 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Trees are a significant cause of power interruptions. Contact between trees and power lines can also create a severe danger. Over the next few months we will be pruning and removing trees in the V6A, V6G and V6K Postal Code area of Vancouver. Trees are pruned using the best arboriculture (tree care) practices. Skilled workers employed by BC Hydro are trained in both electrical safety and tree care. Only correct and proper techniques are used to eliminate any safety hazards.

Dear Canada Post: If you’re going to face the new world order, your leg-up on other parcel delivery firms can be enhanced by doing something very simple: instruct your delivery personnel to actually make an attempt to deliver parcels directly. Four times over the past three weeks, I’ve found notice cards in my mailbox, advising me that a parcel was being held for me at my local sub post office. Since I’m home most of the day and since my buzzer rings to my cell phone, I know that no effort was made to deliver the parcels to my door. I asked a Canada Post employee if this was standard procedure and he said that it was at the discretion of the delivery person. WTF?! Customer service standards are at the whim of an employee?! If that’s an example of how this business intends to be run, maybe it’s time to not only cease door-to-door delivery (which, ironically, they seem to have already done with parcels) but to simply shut down altogether and leave the service to companies that know what to do, and how to treat customers. Canadian Guy

throughout 2013. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver reports that total sales of detached, attached and apartment properties in 2013 reached 28,524, a 14 per cent increase from the 25,032 sales recorded in 2012, and an 11.9 per cent decrease from the 32,390 residential sales in 2011. “Home sales quietly improved last year compared to 2012, although the volume of activity didn’t compare to some of the record-breaking years we experienced over the last decade,” Sandra Wyant, REBGV president said. Last year’s home sale total ranks as the third lowest annual total for the region in the last 10 years, according to the region’s Multiple Listing Service. The number of residential properties listed for sale on MLS declined 6.2 per cent in 2013 to 54,742 compared to the 58,379 properties listed in 2012. The total represents an 8.1 per cent decline compared to the 59,539 residential properties listed for sale in 2011. Last year’s listing count is on par with the 10 year average.

Ten years of PuShing boundaries By Kelsey Klassen

A

fter 10 years at the forefront of the PuSh festival, cofounder and artistic director Norman Armour finally feels that he and his colleagues have done enough — enough to make the festival self-sustaining; to draw in more edgy and acclaimed arts companies from around the world; and to, maybe, one day, take a step back. The festival’s tenth anniversary marks a moment of reflection for a team that has worked tirelessly to bring the performing arts to the darkest days of winter in this city. The first decade was about establishing trust with their newly cultivated audience (a mix of theatre goers, music and dance lovers, and filmmakers — a

mirror of Armour’s experiences at SFU’s School for Contemporary Arts in the ‘80s). And with that trust, came support. After getting off the ground in 2003 and becoming a non-profit entity with the help of the City, the festival experienced a set of circumstances unlike any the city will see again this century. First, PuSh seized the opportunity afforded by the impending Olympic Games to become a major partner in the 2010 Cultural Olympiad. Then, in 2011, together with the City of Vancouver, PuSh launched the official celebrations of the city’s 125th anniversary with an outdoor event in Gastown that drew more than 7,000 people. Armour recalls a sense of fiscal foreboding at the end of that incredible run.

“A lot of money had come into the region with the Cultural Olympiad, and some of it remained, to a degree, for the 125th, and then it was gone. You also had the gaming [money], which was pulled away from adult groups for a period there. That was a scary moment of pushing the rock up the hill and wondering, personally, if I had it in me to push it up again.” Despite the challenges, however, PuSh presented 160 performances and events over 19 days, with 31 sellouts in 2012. And Armour, along with cofounders such as Katrina Dunn, built an organization that warrants 19 board members and an advisory council. And by 2013, Armour says he felt solid ground under the festival’s supports. “There were too many people who believed in this, too many forces at play that depended on it, too many people who expected it each and every year who had been won over or perhaps had been believers in the festival from the very beginning, that I thought, for the first time, ‘Wow, this is not going anywhere. This is here.’” So what’s next? This anniversary brings with it the impending departure of Minna Schlendlinger, the festival’s managing director since 2005, who, Armour says, has achieved “everything she wanted to.” “There will be a time for me as well,” he adds. “It’s not yet. Every day I come looking forward and excited. Even amongst all the challenges that remain, there are still things that I want to achieve and see realized.” And Armour, last year’s recipient of the Mayor’s Civic Merit award, has the wherewithal to do so. “From my experiences of living elsewhere and working elsewhere, if you want to make something happen in Vancouver, you often have to create the conditions for it to happen. By this time last year, we had created the conditions. Now there are more conditions [needed] for the long-term resilience and flourishing of the festival for the next 10 years.” Armour wants the festival to speak to what the city is and its diversity — the most direct way of which is to engage a

I think it will be particularly inspiring to the city.” Jan. 16-18; Advance tix: $27-33 The Dragonfly of Chicoutimi: “The Quebecois scene is one of the finest anywhere in the world and here is this acclaimed leading director tackling what is an iconic play in the Quebecois canon.” Jan 22-25; Advance tix: $27-33

PuSh co-founder Norman Armour is already anticipating the festival’s next 10 years. Taylor Mac photo younger audience. Curating this year’s festival with Joyce Rosario and Club PuSH’s Veda Hille and Tim Carlson, Armour also aims to see more work from continents such as Africa and South America, and anticipates presenting their first Nordic piece in 2015. “With the change after the Olympics and the 125th, there is a gap in terms of commissioning monies to support not only the premiere of a work and its presentation but also its creative development — the kind of monies and support that will allow us to make new situations and opportunities for the contemporary performing arts. That’s a challenge I want to tackle; I want us to open up a broader base of support in terms of the private sector and I think we’re not alone.” So the festival may be ‘crossing the line’ this year, as the anniversary slogan puts it, but it is by no hard yards the finish line.

JANuary 3 — MARch 31

If you think your family has problems, wait until you get a load of the truly dysfunctional bunch of characters in the dark and frequently hilarious August: Osage County. Boasting a stellar cast including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor and Margo Martindale, director John Wells had the difficult task Thor of paring down the original Diakow Tracy Letts play; Letts is also credited with adapting the screenplay for the film version. For the most part, Wells and Letts do a commendable job of condensing the salient points of the southern sizzler, which is chock full of boozing, pill popping, self-loathing, infidelity and even a sprinkling of racism. A family crisis brings three sisters (Julia Roberts, Juliette Lewis, and Julianne Nicholson) back to the Oklahoma home they grew up in to contend with their unstable mother Violet, played wonderfully by Streep. It should be noted that everyone is in top form here, particularly Martindale who nearly steals the show, while Chris Cooper shines in his best role in years. The movie’s brilliant script cracks and pops along

A family crisis brings a dysfunctional family (featuring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts) back under one roof. at a brisk pace with enough awkward and cringeworthy humour to make Larry David blush. Everything culminates like a powder keg in an explosive dinner scene and it’s never been so much fun to watch Julia Roberts drop F-bombs. It may not tie up all the loose ends but August: Osage County provides its formidable cast with the chance to shine in an era when script can so often be an afterthought.

Spike Jonze film seduces HER

Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara Directed by Spike Jonze Having asserted that “falling in love is just a socially acceptable form of insanity,” Spike Jonze’s Her goes on to illustrate that such madness takes myriad forms. For instance, there’s Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a depressed writer who finds himself in the unexpected position of falling for Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson), the revolutionary sentient operating system that powers his personal devices. Remarkably, a premise that initially seems so slight it could barely sustain a quirky short film instead inspires a bold piece of speculative fiction well-stocked with heady ideas, keen insights and artful takes on both our innate desires and insecurities. Furthermore, it’s a deeply affecting work from a filmmaker who’s more often celebrated for his visual talents. That said, the design of the film does prove vital as it allows full immersion in a near-future Los Angeles of barely perceptible differences. Pants rise higher and public transit is fashionable but the effects of heartbreak haven’t diminished in the slightest. It’s devastating to watch Theodore cope with the emotional fallout of his ex’s (Rooney Mara) anger and come to terms with his personal failings. Consequently, we share in the solace he takes from Samantha’s assurance that “the past is just a story we tell ourselves.” Jonze’s film not only seduces us through such beautifully expressed sentiments but also by way of its beguiling depictions of how Theodore’s fully-reciprocated infatuation with Samantha inspires confounding questions that don’t have any easy, much less eloquent, answers. Revelling in the fact that, at its heart, romance is irrational and absurd, Her ultimately assures us that we’re better to have loved and lost our minds. — Curtis Woloschuk

Admittedly, there’s not much suspense regarding who makes it out alive in this dramatization of a real-life 2005 Navy SEAL operation in Afghanistan that went sideways. Likewise, gungho director Peter Berg’s involvement leaves little doubt as to how the subject matter will be handled: war may indeed be hell but such conditions prove ideal for forging fraternal bonds that even death can’t break. After a montage (which could double as a “wusses need not apply” recruitment video) of actual Navy SEALS testing their physical limits, Berg introduces us to their fictional stand-ins who are spoiling for a fight. Soon enough, four elite operatives who eat impossible odds for breakfast — played by Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster — are dispatched to flush out a Taliban heavy. Instead, they discover how the best laid plans can be completely undone by the inopportune arrival of some goat herders. The inclusion of make-up artists Gregory Nicotero and Howard Berger — who cut their teeth in horror — in the credits warns of the gore that ensues as this band of brothers tries to shoot their way out of trouble. However, the slaughterhouse-worthy bloodshed is hardly the most objectionable aspect of Berg’s film. Rather, it’s how the filmmaker cranks Explosions in the Sky’s soaring, dramatic music and distastefully stages the SEAL’s last stand as if it were just another “big game” in Friday Night Lights. It’s a decidedly blunt force mode of manipulation but it’ll likely result in many lunkheads exiting the theatre and high-fiving a bro they love the first chance they get. — Curtis Woloschuk
