Students revive award-winning musical

School of Drama and Music is offering the first production of The House of Martin Guerre in nearly two decades.

After an 18 year hiatus, The House of Martin Guerre is back on stage. The musical is the first production from the newly created School of Drama and Music.

“The rights for this show were held by a major theatre producer for well over a decade after its first run,” says director Tim Fort (Drama and Music). “There were people (like me) interested in producing the show since the 1990s but couldn’t get permission while it was awaiting a proposed New York run. The original mid-1990s show was a big hit – winning best musical awards in both Chicago and Toronto – but it simply disappeared until an exclusive ‘option to produce’ agreement finally ran out and the show became available last spring.”

Leslie Arden works with the cast of The House of Martin Guerre.

The House of Martin Guerre is a true story about a French 16th century court case featuring Martin Guerre and his wife Bertrande. Married at 14 years old for a financial arrangement, Martin abandons his family after eight years of an unhappy marriage. Another eight years pass with no news until a man claiming to be Martin returns to the village with new passion for his marriage and new ideas that oppose his powerful uncle. The court case revolves around the disputed identity of Martin.

The music and lyrics are by Leslie Arden (with a book written jointly by Arden and Anna T. Cascio).  Arden is one of the leading musical composers in Canada and Dr. Fort’s longtime friend. He asked her for permission to produce its first revival and to come to Queen’s to work with the student actors and musicians on the production.

“She is a hugely musical person who is great with the students,” Dr. Fort says. “She’s also one of the greatest musical minds currently working in Canada.  The House of Martin Guerre was written immediately after Leslie had studied with theatrical legend Stephen Sondheim and reflects much of his genius for musical storytelling.”

The School of Drama and Music officially came into existence earlier this year. Dr. Fort is pleased with how the students have come together under one roof, both metaphorically and literally, and how much they are learning through this joint project. “Our collaborations are not new, but it’s so much easier when everyone is working together in one creative school.”

The House of Martin Guerre opens at the Rotunda Theatre in Theological Hall on Thursday, Nov. 5 and runs Nov. 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13 and 14 at 8 pm. There are 2 pm matinees on Nov. 8, 14 and 15. Tickets are $22 or $15 for students and seniors. They can be purchased in the Drama office in the basement of the Theological Hall or at the door.

Revealing a secret life

Robert Morrison to discuss Thomas De Quincey on BBC. 

Queen’s University English professor Robert Morrison is joining the discussion on the life and times of the nineteenth-century English essayist and opium addict Thomas De Quincey as part of the BBC show The Secret Life of Books, a program that examines classic books with a fresh eye.

Queen's University english professor Robert Morrison (r) sits down with BBC The Secret Life of Books host John Cooper Clarke (l) to discuss Thomas De Quincey. The interview, titled "Confessions of an English Opium Eater" featuring Dr. Morrison airs Monday, Nov. 2 at 3 pm EST on BBC Four.  

The show features two interviews with Dr. Morrison, a leading expert on De Quincey.

“I was thrilled to be invited. I really wanted to participate in this project because it was a chance to talk about De Quincey’s most notorious book – Confessions of an English Opium-Eater – and the profound impact it has had on our understanding of drugs, creativity, and addiction. The program is devoted to exploring the way books shape our lives and our culture.”

Dr. Morrison has been studying De Quincey for 30 years. He is the author of The English Opium-Eater: A Biography of Thomas De Quincey, which was a finalist for the James Tait Black prize, the oldest literary prize in Britain. Three years ago Dr. Morrison’s work gained further prominence when novelist David Morrell started researching De Quincey for a new book and reached out to the Queen’s professor to ensure the historical accuracy of his work. Dr. Morrell’s books Murder as a Fine Art (2013) and Inspector of the Dead (2015) are co-dedicated to Dr. Morrison.

Dr. Morrison has just finished working on a new edition of De Quincey’s finest writings for Oxford University Press, all of which led to the BBC invitation.

For the BBC program, Dr. Morrison met with show host John Cooper Clarke, who toured with The Sex Pistols and The Clash in the 1970s, released a best-selling book of poetry in 1983 and regularly performs as a punk poet.

“I was hoping to build rapport with him but wasn’t sure how. We met, sat down and there was a pause. He then looked up and said, ‘Paul Anka’s Canadian.’ I wasn’t sure how to react,” says Dr. Morrison. “I said ‘yes, Paul Anka is Canadian. He was born and raised in Ottawa.’ He nodded and we were off. He asked great questions. It was a fascinating experience.”

Confessions of an English Opium Eater featuring Dr. Morrison airs Monday, Nov. 2 at 3 pm EST.

Long-lost mural a valuable learning resource

A long-lost mural has found new life as a valuable learning resource for students of the Master of Art Conservation program at Queen’s University.

Removed from a wall at the former Kingston bus terminal on Bath Road earlier this year, the massive 3.4-by-1.8-metre oil on canvas mural is now being assessed by the program’s six students.

The piece, created by Canadian artist Kenneth Hensley Holmden (1893-1963), is based on a painting originally created by William Henry Bartlett (1809-1854) entitled Fish Market, Toronto.

The painting was found behind a wall during a renovation project and was donated to the program by the Springer Group of Companies.

While it is a beautiful art piece its true value isn’t measured in dollars. Instead it is the rare opportunity for the program’s students to immerse themselves in the project from start to finish.

“This is going to be a long-term endeavor and we’re also just incredibly grateful to the Springer family for donating the piece because it has been such an exceptional learning experience for us and we’re delighted to have it,” says Amandina Anastassiades, assistant professor of art conservation (artifacts).

Anita Henry, adjunct professor of art conservation (paintings), says that removing a painting from a wall is a rare event.

“I’ve been working now for over 25 years in the field of conservation and I’ve done it twice,” she says. “It doesn’t happen very often, so these students are incredibly lucky to have been able to do that.”

Patrick Gauthier, a second-year art conservation student is excited to be working on such a complex project as part of his ongoing studies. Not only is the mural large, it also offers a wide range of challenges for conservators.

“What we’re actually doing right now is the condition report. We’re assessing all the layers of the painting. We’re starting with the canvas and then we’re examining the ground, the preparation layer, the paint surface and the varnish surface,” he explains. “If there is some dirt on it we’ll document it as well. We’ll document the losses, how the painting is made, how it aged and how it has deteriorated. That will give us ammunition for further treatments.”

After being rediscovered, the mural drew a significant amount of interest from the Kingston community with many people recalling it from their visits to the bus terminal restaurant.

As a result, the mural will be open for viewing during the Art Conservation Open House being held Saturday from 1-3 pm as part of Homecoming weekend. Visitors will be able to check out the program’s facilities at 15 Bader Lane and view the treatment and science labs where students learn to conserve paintings, works of art on paper, and objects of archeological, historic and ethnographic origins. All are welcome!

Queen's University offers the only Master of Art Conservation program in Canada. Students specialize in the conservation of paintings, artifacts or paper objects or carry out research in conservation science. 

Queen's Page Lectures welcomes author Elizabeth Hay

A burgeoning lecture series presented by the Queen’s Department of English welcomes author Elizabeth Hay to campus next week to discuss “the page” – the act of writing, the writing life and community, or any aspect of putting words to paper the lecturer wants to explore.

“Queen’s English is very pleased to welcome award-winning author Elizabeth Hay to the university,” says Shelley King, Head of the department. “This series of lectures on ‘the page’ represents an exceptional opportunity for our students and the wider community to hear Canadian writers at the peak of their craft speak about their literary experiences. The concept is clever and catchy, and the first three speakers – Phil Hall, Erín Moure, Stan Dragland – have demonstrated convincingly the value of this series.”

The Page Lectures launched in 2012, when then-writer-in-residence Phil Hall proposed the event as a way to “invigorate and challenge the university and Kingston artistic communities.” At the same time, with a play on words, it was an opportunity to honour Joanne Page, a local poet and artist. Ms. Page passed away in early 2015 of cancer. The series invites men and women writers alternately each year.

“This is the first year of the lectures without Joanne. She represented the spirit of place for Kingston’s writing community,” says Mr. Hall, Director of the Page Lectures. “It will be a very special event this year, announcing and celebrating all of the support that has come forward for our series in the past year. Liz Hay is the perfect writer to have at this time. We are all looking forward to her talk.”

After Ms. Page’s death, the Department of English pledged $25,000 from its Alumni Fund to act as seed-money for a new fund that would endow “The Page Lectures” in perpetuity. The fund recognizes both Joanne’s contribution to Canadian writing and the importance of the newly inaugurated lecture series to creative writing within the department and the wider community. Dr. Steven Page, Joanne’s husband, matched this gift, and with further support from other family members and friends, the Joanne Page Lecture Fund was established in September 2015.

Ms. Page was a cherished member of the Kingston and Canadian literary scenes, with three books of poetry: The River and The Lake (1993), Persuasion for a Mathematician (2003), and Watermarks (2008), nominated for the Trillium Prize. She was also a talented painter and for many years, she wrote a column for the Whig-Standard called In Other Words, which focused on feminist issues and wisdom.

In years past, the Page Lectures welcomed writer Stan Dragland, who spoke about the life and work of Ms. Page; and poet Erín Moure, who wrote about experiments to expand the concept of what a page can mean for experimental and digital writing. In the inaugural year, Mr. Hall’s lecture, Notes From Gethsemani, spoke of monk’s libraries, the history of pages, vellum, and manuscripts.

Both Phil Hall’s lecture and Stan Dragland’s lecture have since been published in small book form.

Elizabeth Hay — this fall also promoting her new novel, His Whole Life — will present her public lecture Tuesday Oct. 27 at 2:30 pm in Watson Hall, Room 517. All welcome. More information is available on Facebook.

Grant will make Inuit art exhibition a reality

The Agnes Etherington Art Centre has received a substantial grant of $261,937 from the Museum Assistance Program (MAP) of the Department of Canadian Heritage, it was announced Friday.

[Norman Vorano]
Norman Vorano is the Queen’s National Scholar and Curator of Indigenous Art.

The grant, the largest received by the gallery from this source, will be allocated over a three-year period. It supports an extraordinary exhibition of graphite drawings under the title Drawing from the Past: Picturing Inuit Modernity in the North Baffin Region, 1964. The show will be featured at the Agnes in 2017, with a national tour to follow.

Created in partnership with the Canadian Museum of History and the Piqqusilirivvik Inuit Cultural Learning Facility in Clyde River, Nunavut, Drawing from the Past will examine a tumultuous era in the history of Canada’s Arctic through the display and interpretation of a unique collection of Inuit drawings made in 1964. The drawings, created by Inuit men and women from the North Baffin communities of Clyde River, Pond Inlet, and Arctic Bay, document the thoughts, apprehensions, memories and observations of Nunavummiut during a time of social upheaval. The pieces entered the collection of the Canadian Museum of History in 2014.

Norman Vorano, Queen’s National Scholar and Curator of Indigenous Art, will lead the project. The exhibition is the first effort to bring this collection to the public in 30 years. Dr. Vorano says the project represents a special opportunity.

“The partnership with Piqqusilirivvik will ensure an informed, culturally rich interpretive framework for presenting these drawings, and opens a new channel of engagement with Canada’s Aboriginal population,” he says. “Reflecting contemporary discussions in curatorial practice, the exhibition seeks a realignment of the relationship between Indigenous and settler perspectives on non‐Western art through an emphasis upon the intangible elements of visual arts — the stories, memories and voices associated with the drawings.”

Agnes Director Jan Allen points out that the cultural exchange embedded in Drawing from the Past takes the work of the gallery in a new direction.

“With the support of MAP and the help of our partners, these drawings — tangible traces of cross‐cultural encounter from half a century ago — will come to life through reflective interviews with the people of their community of origin,” she says. “In conceiving this project, Norman Vorano has cultivated a fresh collaborative approach that promises to be revelatory for all involved.”

In addition to his role at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Dr. Vorano is an assistant professor in the Department of Art at Queen’s University.

Queen's National Scholar in running for literary award

Armand Ruffo, the Queen’s National Scholar in Indigenous Languages and Literatures, is in the running for a Governor General's Literary Award it was announced Wednesday.

Mr. Ruffo is a finalist in the non-fiction category for his work Norval Morrisseau: Man Changing into Thunderbird, a biography of the innovative and controversial Ojibway painter.

Mr. Ruffo, who teaches in the Department of English Language and Literature and Department of Drama, says he is surprised by the nomination and considers it an honour to be included among “such fine writers.”

Norval Morrisseau: Man Changing Into Thunderbird took numerous years to write because of the huge amount of primary research that I had to do, and the way that I wanted to integrate this material into a compelling narrative, and so it is wonderful to hear that the book may not simply fall into the proverbial ‘big black hole’ and disappear quickly from sight,” he says. “Ultimately, it’s the writing that matters, and I think the nomination should help the book come to the attention of potential readers, and for a writer – at least for me – this is the best thing about the nomination.” 

Mr. Ruffo, who has produced poetry, plays and biographies, as well as a feature-length film, says that what drives his creativity is a desire to share the stories and histories of Canada’s Indigenous peoples.

Since arriving at Queen’s in 2014, Mr. Ruffo has continued his multi-disciplinary juggling act teaching classes in the Department of English Language and Literature and School of Drama and Music, and has become active with Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre.

Another finalist with Queen’s connections is Helen Humphreys, a Kingston-based writer who is on the short list for the fiction prize for her book The Evening Chorus. Ms. Humphreys was the Writer-in-Residence at the Department of English Language and Literature in 2009.

Sir Terry Matthews will visit the Queen's University campus on Oct. 15 as part of the Principal’s Forum distinguished lecture series.

“I am delighted to welcome Sir Terry Matthews to Queen’s. His tremendous success in business and lifetime of experience in entrepreneurship makes him an excellent choice to take part in this forum,” says Dr. Steven Liss, Vice-Principal (Research). “It is my hope that the members of the Queen’s and greater Kingston community will leave his talk with a much better idea of just how much can be accomplished with hard work and a vision."

Sir Terry is the founder and chairman of investment management firm Wesley Clover International. Since 1972, he has either founded or funded more than 100 companies, including Newbridge Networks, which he started in 1986 and has since grown to be a leader in the worldwide data networking industry, and Mitel, a current world leader in the design and manufacture of enterprise communications systems and software.

David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, and The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.

 

Queen's hosting Matariki colloquium

[Gauvin Bailey]

The role of religion within the humanities is the focus of an international conference being hosted by Queen’s University from Oct. 1-3.

Starting Thursday, Queen’s will host Religion Across the Humanities: A Matariki Humanities Colloquium, bringing together scholars from the seven member institutions of the Matariki Network of Universities.

The highlight of the event is the keynote presentation by Queen’s own Gauvin Bailey (Art History), the Bader Chair in Southern Baroque Art. Dr. Bailey will offer up an engaging talk, that is open to the public, entitled “The Spiritual Rococo: Décor and Divinity from the Salons of Paris to the Missions of Patagonia” on Thursday, from 6-6:45 pm in Speaker’s Corner, Stauffer Library.

In his presentation, Dr. Bailey will address some “fundamental conundrums” that impede the understanding of 18th-Century aesthetics, culture, and religion, including why Rococo, a profane, self-consciously private manner of ornamenting the French aristocratic home turned into one of the world’s most popular manifestations of the sacred and why is Rococo still treated as a decadent nemesis of the Enlightenment when the two had fundamental characteristics in common?

“I seek to answer these questions by treating Rococo as a global phenomenon and by exploring its moral and spiritual dimensions through the lens of populist French religious literature of the day—a body of work I call the ‘Spiritual Rococo,’” Dr. Bailey says. “I will trace Rococo’s development from France through Central Europe, Portugal, Brazil, and Spanish South America by considering the parallel diffusion of the style itself and the literature of the Spiritual Rococo in these same regions. One of my ultimate goals is to acknowledge Rococo’s essential modernity.”

He adds that such events hosted by the MNU are important because they bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines but with key interests in common.

“In this case the colloquium is focussed on religion, a critical aspect of research and teaching in many fields,” he says. “The opportunity for cross-disciplinary dialogue made possible by the Matariki Humanities Colloquium make these connections happen.”

The MNU is an international group of leading, like-minded universities. Along with Queen’s, member institutions include: Dartmouth College (US); Durham University (England); Uppsala University (Sweden; University of Tubingen (Germany); University of Western Australia; and University of Otago (New Zealand).

Dr. Bailey also is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and Correspondent Étranger, Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres, Institut de France.

Sketch comedy troupe coming back to Queen's

[She Said What]

They’re all women, they’re all graduates of Queen’s and, now, they are all returning to the university.

Award-winning sketch comedy troupe She Said What will be at Queen’s on Monday, Sept. 21 for a series of workshops with current students of the Department of Drama and Music, as well as a performance at Theological Hall in the evening.

The troupe is made up of four alumni – Emma Hunter, Marni Van Dyk, Carly Heffernan, and Megan MacKeigan, all Artsci’07 – who met while performing with Queen’s Players. Following graduation, they each moved to Toronto and formed their own group as a way to continue doing comedy and to create their own performance opportunities in Toronto.

As Ms. MacKeigan explains, the four are very much looking forward to performing again at Queen’s, particularly for the three others who either majored or minored in Drama.

“It’ll be great to go back and, I didn’t but all the others performed on that same stage so it’ll be quite nostalgic to come back and perform, especially for the Drama 100 class at 1 pm on Monday,” she says. “They all took that class when they started at Queen’s so it’ll be neat to see these budding young students in their second week of class.”

Ms. MacKeigan studied Applied Economics and is now a lawyer.

She Said What has performed in the Toronto and Chicago Sketch Comedy Festivals, won the Second City best of the fest at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival and was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for best sketch troupe.

They were invited back to Queen’s by Director of the Queen's School of Drama and Music Craig Walker. He says it was an easy decision to ask them to come back.

“She Said What is a very funny, very entertaining sketch comedy troupe. They really put the lie to the stupid old canard that ‘women aren’t funny,’” he says. “So the main reason I invited them is that they will be very entertaining.  But the other reason I invited them is that they are terrific examples of successful alumni.”

Since graduating, the members of the troupe have had interesting and successful careers, Dr. Walker points out, adding that they have accomplished this by being “resourceful and flexible and often by creating their own work in a remarkably joyous way.”

Ms. Hunter has appeared on CBC's Mr. D as well as CTV's Spun Out, Pop Quiz, Match Game. Ms. Heffernan is also a Second City alumni and now writes and teaches with the company as well as a number of television shows. She also is a very active voiceover actor. Ms. Van Dyk  is a television producer, writer and producer of short films. She is also an actor on a number of web series and other television shows. Ms. MacKeigan is the new chair of the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival, vice-president Queen's Players Toronto and a partner in a law firm.

 She Said What will perform at Theological Hall at 8 pm. Tickets are $5 at the door.
