#CdnCult Times; Volume 2, Edition 1


Change, Change, Change!

Change is the only category all three of this edition’s posts are categorized under. This is because SpiderWebShow is changing.

The biggest change is the addition of Neworld Theatre as a producer as Adrienne Wong joins the show as Artistic Associate and Head Researcher. We are excited to collaborate with an artist ideally suited to push the boundaries of what this site can facilitate and her initial thoughts on this development can be found in her first article to the site.

Meanwhile, Old Hands (we’ve been around since October) Sarah Garton Stanley and I are also thirsting for change. Stanley expands upon this desire with allusions to an ancient Greek parable, while I go straight for the nuts and bolts of where Praxis has been and where it’s going.

Welcome to Volume 2 where change is the name of the game and we couldn’t be happier about it.
