GLORIA

May 2nd – May 6th @ Theatre La Chapelle

Gloria, an immersive opera that seamlessly intertwines electronic music, VJing and vocal performance, is at once a eulogy of beauty, of the sacred, of creative spirits and of excess. Sovereign and alone, surrounded by screens placed 360 degrees around the audience, Mykalle Bielinkski delivers an ethereal polyphonic vocal performance so entrancing that it blends into the myriad of projections around her. 

SKAWENNATI

From 25th May @ Ellephant

Skawennati offers a rereading of the past and the anticipated future so that they resonate with the culture, history and identity of the First Nations people. The machinimagraphs on view in this exhibition are from Skawennati’s machinimas "TimeTraveller™"(2008-2013) and "She Falls for Ages" (2017), shot in "Second Life".
