Phantasmagorical felt of Marjolein Dallinga
Having had the chance to experiment and refine her technique with Cirque du Soleil and rub shoulders with the great François Barbeau, Marjolein Dallinga brings the ancient technique of felting away from busy trails. His pieces are large, long, colorful, organic, spectacular. Sometimes they go, or else blend in nature. Walk and meet at the Bloomfelt workshops in Gore, in the Laurentians.
Marjolein’s practice is so singular that many organizations all over the world are asking this woman every year to come and teach felting at home. She also devotes several months a year to teaching, a journey that often allows her to revisit her native country, the Netherlands.

Dimensional Cloth: Sculpture by Contemporary Textile Artists
Andra F. Stanton , Foreword by Josephine Stealey
Available June 2018
Sculpture is no longer limited to materials like stone or metal. Sculpting in fabric is shown in ingenious detail here, with more than 350 lavish photographs of 3-D cloth configurations along with insightful profiles of the 78 artists who created them. The images and text capture the currents that are powering these works, like the do-it-yourself (DIY) movement established in the 1990s and the current revival of the revolutionary sculptural cloth of the 1960s. Works are approached through five themes: investigating nature, capturing the ephemeral, playing with space, telling a story, and “Take Heed.” In her foreword, renowned fiber art expert Josephine Stealey helps us put this art form in context, from its origins in 1880 England’s arts and craft movement to today. This is essential reading and inspiration for collectors, students, home artists, and anyone who appreciates innovative artwork.

“A classic absurd theater that dates back to 1952, is taken up by two monuments of the Quebec scene on the stage of the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde: Gilles Renaud, 73, will play the Old Man. And Monique Miller, 84, will play the Old Woman. The challenge of this text is up to the talent of the two performers, directed by the director Frédéric Dubois. “

Théâtre du Nouveau Monde, Montreal, Quebec from Wikipedia
According to Wikipedia, “The Théâtre du Nouveau Monde (TNM) is a theatre company and venue located on rue Sainte-Catherine in Montreal, Quebec. Founded in 1951, it launched with the classic play L’Avare by Molière.
Initially located at the Gesù (1951–1958), it subsequently moved to the Orpheum, then after 1966 it transferred to the salle Port-Royal at Place des Arts and remained there until 1972.
In 1972, the TNM bought the building where the Gayety Theatre and later the Théâtre de la Comédie-Canadienne once performed. The building was renovated in 1997 by Montreal architect Dan Hanganu”

“makes Lady Gaga look like a librarian and has more originality and creativity per minute than any other show i’ve ever seen.”
