The Bloorcourt Hurly Burly says
Join us on Bloor between Dufferin and Christie Pits for our first summer Hurly Burly; an evening of art and entertainment!
Clay and Paper Theatre spins the history of our local theatres, The Doric, The Kenwood and The Paradise, in front of their original locations along Bloor Street. Follow the storytelling sequentially, from theatre to theatre, as history unfolds in this 3-act street performance. Witness the unveiling of a unique commemorative sign for The Doric, presented by art collective DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC MEMORY. Then parade to the Pits with our troupe of puppeteers for the Opening Night of the Christie Pits Film Festival’s 7th Season. See the silent comedy The Freshman with live musical score by The Holy Gasp. The Hurly Burly is supported by the Ontario 150 Community Celebrations programme and is made possible through the generous support of The Paradise, Working Women Community Centre, Main and Main, and Bloorcourt BIA.
