Threshold of Magic: The Death and Life of Tom Thomson

Thursday, July 13, 2017 - 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Thursday, July 13 and Friday, July 14

8pm at St. Paul's Centre

Threshold of Magic: The Death and Life of Tom Thomson, an 80-minute one-man show, brings Thomson's artistic genius to life in brilliant colour and verse. The play begins at the moment of Tom Thomson's accidental death while canoeing in his beloved Canoe Lake.  Invited by a benevolent spirit-guardian, Ralph Waldo Emerson, to explore his life and art, Tom recalls the relationships and inspirations that contributed to his amazing artistic legacy.  The play examines the intersection of art, human relationships and nature. The audience is allowed an intimate look into the character who drew from a deep appreciation and love of nature, technical excellence, and a desire to express the infinite through his art.  Drawn from historical documents as well as conversations with members of the Thomson family, this work brings to life this iconic Canadian legend.

The play is written and directed by Barry T. Brodie and will be performed by Jeffery Bastien.  It is a cooperative production by Sho–Art, Spirit & Performance and the Arts Council Windsor & Region. 

"Barry Brodie has accomplished something quite astonishing...he has created a compelling meditation on the creative process," says Bob Steele of CBC Afternoon Drive about the show. Angie Littlefeild, author of The Thomsons of Durham and Tom Thomson's Fine Kettle of Friends:  biography, history, art and food also praises Brodie as a fellow Thomson scholar, stating: "Barry's [work] brings together meticulous research, technical wizardry, an impressive set, and great acting...an artist finding himself never gets old, and with this play, we are indeed on the threshold of magic." 

 

Dr. Barry T. Brodie is a playwright, director, actor, and educator. He is a co-founder of Shō - Art, Spirit and Performance, an arts accelerator in Windsor, and he teaches a course on the creative process at the University of Windsor. He is the writer/director of Threshold of Magic: The Death and Life of Tom Thomson, and the author of TOM THOMSON - On the Threshold of Magic.
