The cofounder and artistic director of Les Coquettes Cabaret, Catherine Skinner—known onstage as La Minouche—takes the art of public seduction seriously. In a video posted to the troupe's YouTube channel, she promises, “You'll see a little bit of dancing, a little bit of singing, a little bit of aerial circusry, and a little bit of _very_ tasteful striptease.” Setting comedy and titillation aflutter in a blizzard of double entendres, the troupe puts on shows that appeal to adult audiences of any age or gender. The aesthetic might evoke a Burtonesque gothic setting, the seven sexy seas of the pirate age, a neon-flooded nightclub of the '80s, or the future's inevitable dress code of sentient hairpieces. The company thoroughly impressed Kelli Korducki of The Torontoist, who praised the performers' "undeniable song and dance chops," adding that "cabaret patrons may come for the scantily clad dancers, but they will certainly stay for the talent.”
With period instruments in hand, the musicians of the Aradia Ensemble have spent the last two decades breathing new life into the music of the Baroque. In addition to a regular concert series that mixes beloved classics with oft-overlooked gems, the ensemble frequently pairs with dancers, actors, and non-classical musicians to create unusual juxtapositions that shed light on the intricacies of the baroque style and make 18th-century ghosts wish they'd known about zithers. Under the baton of maestro Kevin Mallon, the group has recently earned a Juno nomination and garnered acclaim for its annual Dublin Messiah, a recreation of the original Dublin performance of Handel's seminal Christmas piece in 1742.
A team of magicians, mentalists, and illusion-weavers entrances audiences at three historical buildings: The Franklin House (Mississauga Streetsville), The Crimson Lounge (downtown Toronto), and The Bear (Pickering). Every performance suspends audiences’ disbelief with a different cast, hosted by sleight-of-hand magician James Alan. The roster includes many of Toronto’s leading magic and mystery entertainers. Performers are announced regularly via Twitter and Facebook.
Before dropping their jaws, guests can exercise them with an eclectic dinner menu, and bar service before and after the show allows attendees to demonstrate to their friends how they can make a glass of beer disappear by slowly drinking it.
There are advantages to wandering. Toronto Concert Orchestra reaches audiences throughout the greater Toronto area without having to play from the top of the CN Tower, thanks to an itinerant status that brings them to many venues and concert halls north of Highway 201. It's all part of the TCO's misson: to bring orchestral music to new audiences in new environments whenever they can.
