¡Open La Puerta!
¡Open La Puerta! Is a music and sound collage performance inspired by composer Martin Rodriguez’s heritage as a Mexican-Polish-American. Using a patchwork of sounds influenced by growing up on the boarder town of Rio Rico, Arizona to coming of age in a Seattle suburb in the 90s, he creates cinematic soundscapes offering a door to the imagination. Martin will be performing his composition with a small ensemble of musicians, mixing elements of improvisation and found art (including family videos & photos), along with hand made electronic instruments creating a musical atmosphere that reflects his diverse upbringing and the roads that have brought him to call Montréal home.

Beaver Dreams tells a story about a family of beavers and a family of humans living in the heart of the Quebecois forest. The beavers go about their daily life; gnawing on wood and building dams. The humans try to go about their typical summer chalet activities; sun tanning on the dock, dancing in the moon light. But when the dam raises the water level over the dock's edge there is a perpetual struggle between construction and destruction, between the animal and its adversaries.

SEXPECTATIONS: With movement, voice-over, video, and just basically hanging out, Maxine Segalowitz invites the public into a reflection on gendered labour in performance that looks like “entertainment”, but doesn’t feel very entertaining.
A David Lynch Wet Dream: A movement based piece exploring themes of play… childhood…identity…time…All in set in a strange, Lynchian non-narative. In other words: its surrealist wank.
