Very pleased to announce I will be joining Ashley Au, Christine Fellows and my Weakerthans comrade Jason Tait to perform an original live score, For the Turnstiles, with Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers, May 7, 8, and 9 at the Gas Station Arts Centre in Winnipeg.
For the Turnstiles is a musical, choreographic and visual response to Neil Young’s 1974 album On the Beach. We’ve composed 8 original songs, WCD’s Artistic Director Brent Lott has developed a full-length choreographic work featuring 6 dancers, and video artist jamez will provide live projections, all inspired by Young’s masterful and enigmatic record. We’ve been working on it all winter, and I think it will be a remarkable show.
For Torontonians, Christine and I are also busy writing songs inspired by the writings of our friend Miriam Toews, which we will perform at an evening celebrating her work on May 30th at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre in Toronto. More info here.
