GS2: Untethered--GroundSwell, Inc.

Monday, November 27, 2023, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Eckhardt Hall

SHHH!! Ensemble (Edana Higham, piano; Zac Pulak, percussion) with local percussionists Cameron Denby, Caroline Bucher, and Andrew Nazer.

Through an evocative use of light and space, Untethered will challenge the traditional assumptions of both the audience and the performers. Audience members will be encouraged to move freely during the concert to experience the music and space from varying perspectives. Manitoba’s own guest curators Rebeka Schroeder and Kiara Nathaniel have teamed up with the Ottawa-based SHHH!! Ensemble to present an exciting evening of works for percussion and piano. The SHHH!! Ensemble duo will form the centrepiece of the concert with GroundSwell commissions from our guest curators, along with music by Jocelyn Morlock, Harry Stafylakis and Monica Pearce. Works for percussion quartet by Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Elliot Cole, featuring local players, will round out this exciting programme.

Curated by Kiara Nathaniel and Rebeka Schroeder.

All concerts start at 7:30PM and are pay what-you-can, how-you-can.
