North York Arts kicks off the 2016 year of programming with a theatre co-production of HUFF, starring Cliff Cardinal directed by Karin Randoja.

Huff, first developed at Native Earth’s Weesageechak Begins to Dance festival, is the story of Wind and his brothers, caught in a torrent of solvent abuse while coping with the death of their mother. Wind’s gas-induced dream world bleeds into his haunting reality as he’s preyed on by Trickster through the hallways at school, the abandoned motel he loves more than home, and through his own fragile psyche. Huff is the recipient of the 2012 Buddies in Bad Times Vanguard Award for Risk & Innovation and playwright Cardinal was just named this year’s winner of the RBC Tarragon Emerging Playwright Prize.

JPEC Presents: Everything I Love – Melissa Stylianou Trio

Date: Saturday, February 13, 2016
Time: 8pm
Place: Toronto Centre for the Arts, Lower Gallery, 5040 Yonge Street

Melissa Stylianou has been turning heads and capturing hearts since the turn of this century, from her native Toronto to her adopted home of New York City, from intimate club residencies to top festival stages.
Across her five solo albums (including 2014’s “No Regrets”, which JazzTimes called “Smart. Seamless. Stunning.”), Melissa has maintained a focus on storytelling, whether through her original compositions and lyrics, interpreting the music of songwriters like Paul Simon, James Taylor, and Bjork, or finding a unique and personal way to present oft-sung jazz standards. She looks forward to performing this intimate concert with Jamie Reynolds, one of her favorite duet partners.
This concert also provides an opportunity for Melissa to work with one of her longtime collaborators in Toronto who also happens to be one of Canada’s finest: John MacLeod on cornet and flugelhorn.
