  • Gingger Shankar is an extraordinarily gifted singer, virtuoso violinist, composer, model and songwriter, and was born into one of the world’s most acclaimed and influential musical families. Her accomplishments include working with top producers and film composers including Mel Gibson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Trent Reznor, Mike Nichols, Mike Myers, and James Newton Howard. In addition to her film projects, she has also has lent her voice and violin to several diverse projects ranging from soundtracks to pop and electronic hip-hop.

    An accomplished artist and performer, Gingger is the only female in the world that has mastered the 10- string Double Violin, an instrument that covers the entire range of the orchestra’s double bass, cello, viola and violin, and of which there are currently only two in existence. Coupled with her voice, which covers five octaves, the sound is unparalleled, unbridled, and unforgettable. She debuted with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a soprano in Osvaldo Golijov’s opera “Ainadamar” and later performed it at Carnegie Hall. The multi-talented powerhouse transitioned from opera to rock, Gingger then toured with the Smashing Pumpkins as a special guest on their 20th Anniversary tour.

    In 2011 she was chosen as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s ‘25 New Faces to Watch’, as well as becoming a member of the Advisory Board for the Sundance Film Festival along with Mark Ruffalo, Lake Bell, Rashida Jones and others. Gingger composed music for the critically acclaimed 2011 Sundance U.S. Dramatic Audience Award Winner ‘Circumstance’ directed by Maryam Keshavarz. In addition to being the artist and co-composer behind the poignant score of Mel Gibson’s blockbuster “Passion of the Christ”, Gingger’s music can be heard in Mike Nichol’s film, “Charlie Wilson’s War”.

    Her film 'Monsoon Shootout' premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. She most recently guested on the new Katy Perry single 'Legendary Lover' due out later this year.

  • Let's talk! What We Talk About, the quarterly lecture series, returns this fall—now presented by Little Brother, the literary magazine that the Globe and Mail calls “several kinds of new.”

    For each edition of What We Talk About, curator Peter Merriman chooses three figures from different disciplines who will deliver brief lectures on a given topic. Following the talks, the speakers will engage in a group discussion, mix and match ideas, and invite audience questions and conversation. Like the magazine, WWTA brings together bright people, playful ideas, and intellectual rigour, topped with a healthy dose of wit and irreverence. It's about celebrating curiosity, building community, and, most of all, having fun.

    The theme for the first edition of What We Talk About is “witchy women.” Speakers include:
    Kiva Reardon, founding editor of cléo: a journal of film and feminism, speaking on the commercialization of witch hunt history.
    Derek McCormack, novelist and author of The Haunted Hillbilly and The Show That Smells, speaking on the mysterious Vera West, costume designer during Hollywood's Golden Age.
    Elio Iannacci, Culture Editor of FASHION magazine, speaking on the enduring appeal of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

    What We Talk About was originally founded by Peter Merriman and Alicia Louise Merchant in 2012, and is now part of Little Brother Projects. Little Brother is a Toronto-based, internationally-recognized print magazine that features the best of a new generation of Canadian writers and artists. In its short history, it has won a Gold National Magazine Award, been selected for the Coupe Design Annual, and been featured in The Toronto Star, Monocle, and Dazed and Confused.
