War, a failed marriage, tragic death – the story of German artist Angelika Hoerle brings the adage of a tortured artist to a whole other level. I don’t know if you’ve had a chance to check out the exhibition Angelika Hoerle: The Comet of Cologne Dada, but for the next two Wednesdays in June, a one-act one-woman play dramatizing the last moments of her life will be presented in AGO’s Jackman Hall. The show’s curator Angie Littlefield, has teamed up with the talent of Ryerson University’s theatre program to bring Angelika’s story to life.
I had the good fortune this morning of catching a glimpse of the behind the scenes action as they were running one of their last rehearsals, here are a few of my snaps showing Taryn Jorgensen, one of the two actresses playing Angelika.
