About the Event
Din of Shadow’s sixth production is an ode to the human voice in its many forms: singing, speaking, screaming, whispering, and noise-making; live, pre-recorded, natural, and processed. The voice is presented alone, and in collaboration with instruments, electronics, dance, and video projection.
Two works receive their premieres on the programme: a mixed media trio by Julia Mermelstein and Angela Blumberg, and a theatrical septet by Quinn Jacobs. Alongside these new works are existing gems of the vocal repertoire, including Cecilia Livingston’s chilling quartet Strange Flesh (with new choreography by Angela Blumberg), Matt Curlee’s intricate interpretation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper for speaking percussionist, and selections from Yoko Ono’s instructional masterpiece Grapefruit.
Featuring performances by Evan Lamberton, Stacie Dunlop, Emilie Gélinas-Noble, Nikki Joshi, Andrew McCormack, Markéta Ornova, Jonny Smith, Taylor Collis, Sarah Di Iorio, and Meghan McMartin.
Many thanks to the Toronto Arts Council for their generous support of this event!
