Chasing Champions
The Sam Langford Story
By Jacob Sampson

A Ship's Company Theatre Production

A remount of The Ship’s Award-winning production that plays Canada’s National Arts Centre November 15-25.

Jacob Sampson and a small ensemble cast bring to life the boxing world of the 1910s and 20s; the danger and reward of surviving by your fists, and breaking the mould society has set for you. Chasing Champions takes you on the journey of Sam Langford's boxing career, using flashbacks and a flexible timeline to explore the fighter’s life as a child in Nova Scotia and the experiences that forged one of the greatest fighters who ever lived.

Chasing Champions is a physical experience that brings the audience into training and the ring, from the corner to the mat, and pays tribute to a great man who was almost forgotten. Chasing Champions was created by Ship’s Company Theatre in 2016 and went on to win six Theatre Nova Scotia Merritt Awards, including Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Production.

Chasing Champions
Beethoven’s Seventh and Dinuk’s Clarinet
Featuring Kinan Azmeh, clarinet

Symphony Nova Scotia’s own Dinuk Wijeratne is a JUNO-winning dynamo. He’s “exuberantly creative” (New York Times). “Internationally respected for his virtuosity and sensitivity” (CBC). “An artist who reflects a positive vision of our cultural future” (Toronto Star). Now, Symphony Nova Scotia proudly presents Dinuk’s newest work – the middle-Eastern-influenced Clarinet Concerto, written specifically for Dinuk’s close friend and longtime collaborator, the Syrian-born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh. Plus, we perform Ligeti’s Concert Românesc, made famous from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, and finally, Beethoven’s stunning Symphony No. 7 – a beautiful, unforgettable masterpiece, and one of the most popular symphonies of all time.
