Some of Ottawa’s leading theatres recently announced their lineup for the 2015-16 season.  Over the next few days, Apartment613 will preview what local audiences can expect in the near future.  Today we review the upcoming dance season at the National Arts Centre.

Foodie Friday: Ottawa is Getting Juiced!

Written by on
All photos by Marina Irick.All photos by Marina Irick.

I recently moved home to Ottawa from Vancouver, where the juice craze is in full force. Vancouver’s The Juice Truck, a florescent-coloured kitchen on wheels, parks in trendy Gastown every day – serving cold-pressed juices and scrumptious smoothies to business-people and yogis alike. Retailers like Glory Juice Co and the Juice Box have moved from online sales to storefront shops, stopping virtually every Kitsilano jogger and their dog. The petite round bottles with funky labels are replacing reusable coffee mugs branded with the Starbucks logo. But Ottawa has been quickly... | Continue reading article

His parents would take him on weekly trips to the record store to add to their impressive collection and, naturally, it followed that Emmett began collecting records himself. As Emmett became older, his love of records grew, and just over 11 years ago he started DJing. His DJing career began when a few friends, who... | Continue reading article

« C’est cliché, mais le canal Rideau », répond Ariane alors que je luis demande ce qui lui fait vibrer à Ottawa-Gatineau. Elle se remémore des souvenirs féeriques de son enfance lors de visites dans notre coin de pays. Certains se souviendront de son passage sur scène lors du festival de Bal de neige en 2009, justement, sur la patinoire du canal Rideau. « Ottawa-Gatineau, c’est l’extension de mon public québécois. Il m’est tout aussi important. » Le 16 avril prochain, le Théâtre du CNA accueille l’incontournable auteure-compositrice-interprète Ariane Moffatt dans le cadre de... | Continue reading article
