Rituals connect us to our past. They awaken collective memories— how we got to today—but they are also harbingers, illuminating a galaxy of future possibility.
Ritual is at the root of three programs exploring universal themes: Two Odysseys reimagines ancient Indigenous legends sung in Indigenous languages; Claude Vivier’s Musik für das Ende takes us on a ritual journey through life and death to an ecstatic state of rebirth; and Electric Messiah is an intercultural spiritual exploration of love, betrayal, and redemption.
Many cultures mark occasions celebratory and sombre with brass. Trumpet fanfares, both newly minted and traditional, open our season with Top Brass. Similarly, period instruments like the harpsichord and the hurdy-gurdy evoke memories of a distant sound world, receiving a distinctly refreshing update in Improvised Components. Retro technologies awaken nostalgia, lovingly probed in The Lost Karaoke Tapes by Nicole Lizée, who found some old video cassettes in a dumpster. And who doesn’t have a secret memory? Dutch singer Claron McFadden reveals some of them in Secrets.
2019/20 will be a season to remember. Please join us!
