1st conspires to take your breath away. and christopher alias mr plant and graces the natural world in his arms like in this latest installation. in in france. back when it was published in 1985 margaret atwood's novel the handmaid's tale was critically acclaimed but considered by many to be a bit farfetched the main character offered is one of a cast of scarlet clad handmaids forced to be breeding machines in the patriarchal dystopia of gilliatt will fast forward to 2017 and the novel had a veritable 2nd coming as a t.v. series but also as a symbol of resistance to my sergeant's trompe and politics and that's one reason the long awaited sequel has finally arrived. and my swearing the
iconic red cloaks and white head piece is familiar from the t.v. series and subsequent political protests appeared in the streets of london ahead of margaret and puts his book launch fine say the book is more relevant than ever in some ways it's becoming a worse place with them particularly in the night sky. and so this is very current and very relevant very necessary it wasn't just ahead me it was a forward but it's that 8 minutes to read an x. and then type feel where every time every word that she writes and she change any genuinely changed my life. thanks to stressed as hand range evoked fictional state of giving out handing out oranges and repeating well known catchphrases from the novel. through the sky the canadian only attended the launch and gave a midnight reading from the long awaited sequel at a press conference she had this to sign about the world of gilliatt.
as the. as it is to the world let us hope so. although it's never enough for the people that are running things and those societies think that it's just a group and over what they were doing before. there. was your problem. 34 years the waiting is over and the reading can begin. relevance has ever yes the reading can begin here it is the testaments a novel that super hyped and kennedy from our culture desk has joined me to talk about it now adrian this is the literary event of the year very much on a scale with almost a harry potter book launch yes it is very exciting and unprecedented for mystery books no. in many did not book launches like the one we saw in the report cross the
u.k. similar events in the u.s. and in canada and margaret atwood will appear at center vents at the national finance in london which will be live streamed to $1000.00 movie theaters across the globe amazing at would very much the rock star of canadian literature at almost 80 years old 34 years is a long time to wait for a sequel can you tell us why this is coming yes it's a bit of a long story but the original book of course was a literary success nominated for the booker prize but it remains a literary classic and didn't really break frew into the mainstream until just 2 years ago. but then of course it came on with a vengeance it's literally become a cultural phenomenon that's right the hulu t.v. series the handmaid's type starring. mos as off red was worldwide success that hits screens just after don't trump can use president and was in tip interpreted by many
by millennial inspired new young fans as a warning that a liberal society could quite easily start to slip back into totalitarianism now the 1st series was based on the original book the 2nd series though atwood allowed a team of writers to develop the story so one reason that word has written sequel is to reclaim the story now she also says she's watching it too because of the kurtz hailing of women's rights in trump's america of course the iconic look of and made has been used by women's rights protesters across the globe which margaret atwood spoke about at her press conference let's see what she had to say there. are 2 big. new.
because you. know. dr who are. not typically humorous not to the political side but she also says that she wrote this book to answer many of the questions that were asked of her over the years by fans about gilliatt what answers do we get and does this follow the t.v. series the tall well we don't want to give too much weight but i can tell you that the action of the new book takes place 15 years after the final ambiguous scene in the hand might style when it wasn't certain whether she was being liberated or imprisoned that's right and i can also tell you that the new book is told from a perspective of 3 right says none of which is offered that might disappoint some people one of them is the notoriously sadistic aunt lydia who trains that and to terrifying the role terrifying figure the other 2 are young women agnus who has
grown up in the totalitarian system and daisy who lives in neighboring canada and to protests against human rights abuses in gilliatt now according to the initial reviews and the book of price surely it's already been nominates only for one of the shortlisted for the book a prize they say that it's a real page turner it has many breath taking turns and twists so it's definitely time to get a story and i can attest a lot of a lot of the typical at woody and humor and the take home message of this of course adrian is read the books 1st across i think it's for that book uprising thank you very much for coming in to tell us about the testaments russia. well now to a dance company that dates back to 1609 when it was actually the court ballet of the duke's a vote the stock a modern company was formed in the early 1960 s. and from its infancy it was praised for its boundary pushing style well now it has teamed up with 3 renowned choreographers for an evening that has earned its title
breathtaking. and even enough but they and 3 pods is rarely choreography it's the guardian he has created a unique life tends. to be a bit. fellow choreographer swedish to $100.00 places the dances around the wall. and i can con a british choreographer with bangladeshi roots takes us into the world of traditional indian katahdin so. when this hits the drum music like we heard in the last piece puts you into a trance that. the triple bill opens with it's a gully he moves his dances around like chess pieces on a board of beams of light this choreography is called he. sounds japanese
in a visit like 25 years ago in tokyo i saw the electric city. and it cause he comes up to. this name because they settle which is really the light. to the light dances followed by a chamber playing. 6 dances 3 duets playfully dance around a wall in the center off the stage to name a few on in this piece out of breath. well it actually came from the birth of my daughter but that was very sort of problematic like most births are and but i was sort of really touched me was how close life and death was at this very moment so i maybe a month after had to make a battle. to. the dance about life death and the thin line in between
to the end it. this show finishes with a whole new dance style a fusion of contemporary dance and traditional indian dance but it's not about the strict that ballet dancer attended at cuttack workshop in order to perfect their moves each movement carrying a precise meaning. like but like so there's one that's really like a flower opening and closing and enveloping and it's very much oriented towards the heavens. it's a breathtaking show that lives up to its name. finally as forest fires have raged from the arctic to the amazon this summer his art couldn't be more timely cost of d.n.a. calls himself mr plant and as an artist from france he's actively participating in
the debate about environmentalism where this all his latest installation emphasizes the symbiotic relationship between humans and trees. it's a way of showing love for nature tree huggers the title of his stuff is current work and i'm seeing friends. these sculptures stand for hugging or caring about nature in the trees and on ability to do they stand for a philosophy called silver therapy. so that's a kind of therapy that lets you draw strength from nature. in the city. he does the plastering and rapping at his residence for months now mr planned as he called some self has been at work on his project local people that a make plastic casts off their arms. they don't push it and it's
open space so i think the project is quite interesting because it calls on viewers to join in and it allowed me to create art in collaboration with the residents of and see. soon as the plaster arms are drying the stuff he made gets them ready to attach the months. of what i was supposed to put a vision for this project i only use moss for other artwork so i use different plants is. it always depends on the project. says study it all for show you poise. every arm gets a mabel with the name of the donor on it a total of $52.00 arms will make this way. the stuff you may have for the public park where he'll touch the mast of the sculptures to train. the illusion of
