1310 News is proud to support the annual CIBC Run for the Cure!

 

 

Each year, tens of thousands of Canadians participate in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure and help to raise funds for important breast cancer research, education, and advocacy initiatives. Your support throughout the years has helped Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation fund research that is changing the face of breast cancer and helping us create a future without it.

This year promises to an exciting, powerful, and memorable experience for everybody involved. We invite you to run or walk with us on Sunday, October 4 for the 2015 CIBC Run for the Cure.

 

Imagine, a future without breast cancer.

CORTEO by Cirque du Soleil @ Canadian Tire Centre

CORTEO by Cirque du Soleil

After thrilling more than 8 million people worldwide, CORTEO will embark on a new journey next March as the same enchanting production but now in arenas, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy a Cirque du Soleil show in their own town. The show will visit Ottawa at the Canadian Tire Centre for a limited run of seven performances, from June 27 to July 1, 2018.

 

This unique production directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca premiered in Montreal in April 2005 and has visited 64 cities in 19 countries. CORTEO, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth. The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. Juxtaposing the large with the small, the ridiculous with the tragic and the magic of perfection with the charm of imperfection, the show highlights the strength and fragility of the clown, as well as his wisdom and kindness, to illustrate the portion of humanity that is within each of us. The music, by turns lyrical and playful, carries CORTEO through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

 

The cast of CORTEO includes 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.
