Frames in Time
Sponsored by kloetzel&co., the School of Creative and Performing Arts, and cSPACE King Edward, students from the University of Calgary under the direction of Melanie Kloetzel created and presented Frames in Time in partnership with the historic King Edward School in Calgary. One of Calgary’s original sandstone structures that functioned as a school for 89 years, the building has undergone an extensive renovation and opened as the cSPACE arts centre in 2017. The renovated site has preserved many elements of the original architecture and offered a rich dialogue for the performers. Structured as a 1-hour performance tour that addressed issues stemming from military history, gender roles, and the changing nature of childhood, Frames in Time offers audiences a humorous as well as sobering depiction of the site’s historical nuances and layers.
