    1. City Focus: Bahrain

      Uniquely characterized with 33 islands, the archipelago island country in the Persian Gulf known as Bahrain takes the spotlight in this week's City Focus. Interestingly, many believe that Bahrain may have been the biblical Garden of Eden for its prime location as an oasis of fertility in ancient times in a mainly desolated region. As one of the Persian Gulf's most mysterious and exotic destinations, be prepared for a night of creativity and wonder at PechaKucha Night Bahrain Vol. 8. See you there!

      Posture/Gesture: Paintings of Laurie Lisonbee

      @ VOL 16 ON SEP 25, 2018

      Laurie Lisonbee shows artworks of the human figure in yoga postures as metaphors for states of being. Depictions of bodily contortions and mudras of the hand are crafted into relic-like objects.  From art historical sources, junk piles, and yoga practice, Lisonbee derives a painting process akin to devotional meditation.

      The Great Coffee Caper


      In celebration of International Coffee Day:

      "Help us find the last [missing] Fujita panel so we can rebuild the Brazil Cafe in Ginza!"

      In "The Great Coffee Caper " from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, Brazilian Ambassador to Japan,  André Corrêa do Lago shares his piqued curiosity when, as a teenager in Sao Paulo, acquiring a peculiar book of Brazilian architecture that had been published in Japan, it's last page stunning him with images the "Brazil Cafe", a coffee house in a posh corner of Tokyo for its most chic denizens, inside which was decorated with contemporary furniture, its walls adorned by a magnificent mural painted by Japan's most famous artist of the time, Léonard Tsugouharu Foujita.

      Ambassador Lago's interest in the book, and in the cafe, never wavered and when appointed to his position in Japan, and in an effort to re-capture Japan's shared love for Brazilian coffee, he commissioned his staff to research the cafe's history, uncovering a caper of a tale, which has led to the quest for a missing painting and a restoration of Tokyo's once legendary "Brazil Cafe."

      Kitchen Counterpoint

      @ VOL 35 ON SEP 06, 2018

      And now for something really special.

      Musician and composer Julian Beutel had a different idea of how to make use of the PechaKucha Night format. For this "talk", Julian did a live musical performance using a pre-recorded track he composed and did the sound effects right on stage. The piece itself revolves around a central space, the kitchen, and the cast of characters that use it. Julian developed Kitchen Counterpoint in collaboration with Angie Shyr and Seth Boyden. 

      Julian's performance was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.
