The novel Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad was both loved and reviled when it was first published in 1899, but the atrocities of colonialism presented in the book often obscure the deeper question at its core. Theatre Encounter, Calgary’s alternative classic theatre, explores the central question at the heart of the novella in the world premier of this modern reimagining. 


“The real question that Conrad was asking,” says Mike Unrau, director of the production, “was, What does it mean to be human?”

  Editorial: Anti-homosexuality bill sparks culture warPDF files may take a moment to load

As a “Christmas gift” to its citizens, the Ugandan Parliament hopes to pass a bill this December legislating the death penalty for homosexual people. The bill, also known as the “kill the gays” bill, was first introduced in 2009 by Ugandan Member of Parliament David Bahati.

It was resurrected this February in response to mounting pressure from groups wanting to preserve the traditional family.

  Just because I'm drunk doesn't mean I want to fuckPDF files may take a moment to load

Sexual assault is often associated with a redundant Hollywood movie scene — the one where the innocent female lead is stalked by the creepy middle-aged man with over-sized glasses in a sketchy van. This Hollywood scene is unrealistic, especially considering that one in four North American women are sexually assaulted in their lifetime, often by someone they know. The stereotypical roles of the male perpetrator and the female victim need to be challenged because sexual assault can happen to anyone by anyone.

  Film review: Rise of the GuardiansPDF files may take a moment to load

It’s strange to think that the various folkloric figures present in our culture have never been retooled into action heroes. Rise of the Guardians does exactly this, as an all-star cast of well-known characters team up to save the earth. The film’s characters are far from obscure — Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and the Sandman have been in our culture’s collective consciousness for decades.
