This episode features Toronto based designer Jim Plaxton. Jim's 30 year career oversaw the start of many important Toronto theatre companies, including Toronto Workshop Productions, Theatre Passe Muraille as well as the start of Toronto Dance Theatre. In this first half we speak about Jim's early career in architecture and his transition first to film and then to dance and live performance. We also speak about his influence on the renovations of Theatre Passe Muraille in 1982-3 and his stint there as its co-artistic director with Layne Coleman and Clark Rogers.
