Stars for Saskatchewan Series

OSAC (the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils) is the umbrella organization under which local Arts Councils operate.  Part of the mandate of both local and provincial Arts Councils is to bring the performing arts to small rural communities.   The Langenburg Arts Council has been bringing performances to the stage of the George Layh Theatre for nearly 30 years.   Every year (with the exception of Covid years) we have sponsored a series of performances called the STARS FOR SASKATCHEWAN.    Typically our series consists of six performances for which we sell season tickets.   The performances are  selected by a committee of the Arts Council.   The committee members attend the provincial (OSAC) Conference where a number of artists “Showcase” their talent.    From this pool of exceptional national and international talent the committee chooses six “acts” to come to Langenburg.     The quality of the performances is excellent; the range of talent is amazing.

Christine Tassan et les Imposteures

October 20, 2022

With a decade and a half of bringing their special blend of Gypsy jazz and revisited cover songs to audiences, Christine Tassan et les Imposteures have made a name for themselves on the music scene. The latest show of these four exquisitely talented female musicians brings  together some of the best works by Django Reinhardt, Felex Leclerc and American swing composers. This crafty double tribute recalls the meeting between the Gypsy guitarist and the Quebec singer-songwriter in a Saint-Germain-des-Pres hotel in 1951, in Paris. If the two really did meet, the rest is the product of the intensely creative imagination of the quartet. With a singular mix of virtuosity, daring and humour, the fourwoman string band draws inspiration from one artist’s poetry and the other’s swing to weave a rich new musical universe, an ode to freedom and creativity.  In the same line of thought, they’ve expanded their concept to the wonderful swing music of some contemporary “friends” of Django and Felix.

Prisoner of Tehran, based on the book of the same name, is a unique collaboration between Iranian born writer/speaker Marina Nemat and MOTUS O.

After the Islamic Revolution of 1979, Marina was arrested at the age of sixteen and spent more than two years in Evin, a political prison in Tehran, where she was tortured and came very close to execution. She came to Canada in 1991 and has called it home ever since. Marina’s book Prisoner of Tehran has been published in 28 other countries and is an international bestseller. After each show a Question and Answer period will take place. Prisoner of Tehran has toured much of Canada including performances to over 10,000 high school students.
