Betty: They Say I'm Different Screenings at Art Gallery of Ontario, 317 Dundas St. W., Toronto
March 27 to 30 Funk Queen Betty Davis changed the landscape for female artists in America. An aspiring songwriter from a small steel town, Betty arrived on the 70's scene to break boundaries for women with her daring personality, iconic fashion and outrageous funk music. She befriended Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, wrote songs for the Chambers Brothers and the Commodores, and married Miles Davis - startlingly turning him from jazz to funk on the album she named "Bitches Brew". She then, despite being banned and boycotted, went on to become the first black woman to perform, write and manage herself. Betty was a feminist pioneer, inspiring and intimidating in a manner like no woman before.

Virtuoso fiddler Roby Lakatos is a scorching player and a musician of extraordinary stylistic versatility. Equally comfortable performing classical, jazz, and Hungarian folk music, Lakatos defies definition. He is a player whose strength as an interpreter derives from his activities as an improviser and composer. Born into the legendary family of Gypsy violinists descended from János Bihari, "King of Gypsy Violinists," (who directly inspired the Gypsy music of Liszt and later Brahms in his Hungarian Dances) Lakatos’s musicianship evolved not only within his own family but also at the Béla Bartók Conservatory of Budapest, where he won the first prize for classical violin. His unparalleled technique places him among the best players in the world and his musical curiosity and Roma heritage make him truly unique. Tickets start at only $45

March 26 to April 14 Alice’s life is perfect. She has a wonderful husband and a gorgeous new baby. The only thing is: her husband has left on a work trip and the baby is colicky. Alice cannot sleep. Into her chaotic world arrive two fantastical creatures who take an unnatural interest in her child. In a play described as "Rosemary’s Baby meets Fight Club," playwright Lisa Ryder explores the taboo subject of postpartum depression and the extreme places the mind can go. A Blow in the Face is a searing and irreverent take on a subject to which every parent will relate.
