Weekly Slice: In and Around Town (September 30 – October 5)

The Apology Project from Nuit Blanche 2009. Walking through a crowd, as they bump into you "Sorry"

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, a sunset-to-sunrise scavenger hunt across the city, where you can find over 130 contemporary art projects displayed within 3 zones, takes place this weekend (Oct 1 at 6:59pm to Oct 2 sunrise).  Navigating your way through the maze of art takes planning.  There will be road closures, so best to leave your car at home and use your bike or purchase a TTC 10$ day pass to get you through the night.  Bonus: the TTC will be extending all-night service to parts of the subway system for this all-night event.  Be prepared to walk and dress in layers.  I’d also suggest adding the free Scotiabank Night Navigator App to your blackberry or iPhone, as it will provide project details and maps to get there, including the closest subway stops. 

Continuing this week:

      • The Small World Music Festival celebrates its 10 year anniversary (Sept 23-Oct 2) with music from around the world (Argentina, India, Iran, UK , Brazil, Canada, Italy and more). Events include concerts at Yonge-Dundas square and shows at various bars across the city.
      • Cirque du Soleil Totem, a fascinating journey into the evolution of mankind goes on until October 9th. Acts include foot jugglers, roller skaters, trapeze, devil sticks, hoop dancers and unicycles.

Rest up if you’re nuit-blanching it this weekend.  Plenty of things to check out around town.  Enjoy!
