Still Life Continuum – December 11, 2018

Still Life Continuum
Orpheum Theatre Lobby
601 Smithe St, Vancouver, BC
Tuesday, December 11, 2018

As the second instalment of Redshift’s “Still Life” series, Still Life Continuum brings the lobby, theatre, and backstage of the Orpheum to life with offerings from the experimental music and theatre communities. Performances by BC artists and works from the avant-garde repertoire delving into surrealism, myth, and the collective (sub)conscious intersect in a collage of roving performances, sonic installations, and spatialized electroacoustics. For the entirety of the performance, audience members are free to wander throughout the space in and among the performances, becoming part of a moving tableaux which conjures the ghosts of Orpheum performances past. 

Still Life Continuum takes place Tuesday December 11th at 7:30 and is Free and open to the public.

With performances by Driftwood Percussion (Katie Rife, Vern Griffiths, Julia Chien, Aaron Graham, Brian Nesselroad), Black Dog String Quartet (Elyse Jacobson, violin; Molly Mackinnon, violin; John Kastelic, viola; Doug Gorkoff, cello), Debi Wong, Mike WT Allen, Jazz Palley, Spencer Schoening, Melanie Krueger, Mark McGregor, Ornament & Crime, Giorgio Magnanensi, Adrian Verdejo, Miranda Wong, and student and alumni from SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts.
