Rick hosts PANAMANIA launch, announces commission of 20K show!
After a late night hosting the Glenn Gould Prize at Rideau Hall, Rick flew back to Toronto to host the morning launch of PANAMANIA, the Arts & Culture Program of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games.
The event, held at fabulous El Catrin restaurant, was a jam-packed launch of 27 new commissions for the upcoming Games in July-Aug 2015. Rick was delighted, among other things, to once again share the stage with Robert Lepage, who he had fêted the previous night. One of the commissions is the 20K Collective's new adaptation of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, co-created by Rick and Craig Francis.
