03 Afghanistan Memorial Vigil

One of the ways the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces are commemorating the service of Canadian personnel is through an Afghanistan Memorial Vigil.

The Vigil commemorates those who lost their lives during the Canadian mission in Afghanistan: 158 CAF personnel, a Canadian diplomat, a DND contractor, a Canadian journalist who was embedded with the CAF and more than 40 United States Armed Forces members who were under Canadian command during operations in Afghanistan.

The plaques were formerly part of the Kandahar Air Field cenotaph. The cenotaph was a memorial structure for Canadian soldiers to commemorate their fallen comrades while deployed in Afghanistan. The rest of the cenotaph is housed in a warehouse in Ottawa awaiting decision for a permanent home.

The Afghanistan Memorial Vigil remembers and honours those who have fallen in Afghanistan. It also acknowledges the bravery, dedication, valour and professionalism of all members of the Canadian Armed Forces who have served in Afghanistan and supported the mission.

The Afghanistan Memorial Vigil traveled across Canada and the United States between 4 May and 12 November 2014. Future travel dates include.

3 February

1330-1430: opening ceremony, by invite only.
1500-1800: private viewing for Canadian Armed Forces members and families of the Fallen.
1800-2000: open to public.

06 TRACE show and artist talk February 6th and 7th

YK ARCC, Canadian Counsel for the arts, Ontario Arts counsel and Red Dress productions would like to present Trace.

It's an interactive live performance, happening for ONE NIGHT ONLY, in the old Inspired space at Center Square Mall on February 6th. Doors open at 6 pm, and performances begin at 7. Entry is by donation, with $10 being the suggested rate. An artist talk will be happening the next night at the YK ARCC and NWT Pride will be taking part by setting up a photo booth.  

Trace, created by multi-disciplinary transsexual artist and singer Tristan R. Whiston and performance creator Moynan King, is a unique performance installation integrating original sound art technology, music, video, and live performance. The piece emerges from a narrative framework and invites spectator interaction in a multi-disciplinary and immersive setting. The work functions as both a time-based performance and an interactive installation.

trace – to find out where somebody is, or who somebody was

Moynan King and Tristan R. Whiston are artists with distinct multi-disciplinary practices. Their shared interest in ideas of identity, gender, communication, and the element of time (in both life and art) brought them together as artistic collaborators early in their careers. Since their last collaboration, The Boychoir of Lesbos (1996–2006), they have each continued to expand the scope of their practices with Whiston’s growing skill and interest in new communication platforms such as radio, sound composition and community art, and King’s extensive work in interactive and multi-disciplinary performance. In this collaboration, King and Whiston have created a new work to inspire a living exchange between artist and audience. 

trace – a sign, such as a footprint, that remains behind to show the former presence of a person or thing no longer; a physical sign of the passage of a person

Tristan R. Whiston was born female. For many years, he was seen (and heard) as a woman. Now, after ‘transitioning’ from female to male, he is seen (and heard) as a man. Only a few tangible traces of his ‘past’ remain: photographs, a birth certificate, an ‘F’ on his driver’s license, and numerous archival recordings of his singing voice. Since transitioning from female to male, Whiston’s voice and appearance have become more “in sync” while, simultaneously, his experience in the world has become more fragmented. 


Trace, though inspired by personal experience, is not “transgender 101”; instead, it seeks to transform a private story into a universal experience where audiences find multiple points of connection. trace puts the audience at its centre, and asks: how does any person reconcile all of who they have been, with who they are now, and with who they are yet to become; trace explores the idea that stasis is counter to life, and that we are all always ‘becoming.’

trace – to copy something by putting translucent paper on top of it and drawing the visible outlines

The physical environment of trace (inspired by the Visconti film Death in Venice) consists of three blue and white striped beach changing huts, ten audio speakers mounted on specially designed plinths, several folding beach chairs, and a video of the ocean projected (from multiple places) onto the plinths, the huts, and walls—as well as the performer and the audience.

The audio component of trace consist of a series of original compositions made from manipulated archival recordings of Tristan’s own singing and speaking voice at different stages (child, teenager, female adult, male adult, and transitional year). These pre-mixed compositions, mostly single tracks, are mixed live into a multi-track soundscape using an original computer interface (conceived by King and Whiston and implimented by Dafydd Hughes) that allows individual tracks to be directed to any one of ten speakers positioned throughout the space. 

Throughout the 45-minute solo performance portion of the work, a rich, spatialized soundscape comprised of live harmonies, pre-mixed compositions and audience recordings is generated to create a unique non-linear narrative. The performance component of the work is bookended by a variety of opportunities for the audience to engage with the environment and technology. Spectators enjoy a self-directed interactive experience by moving freely around the space picking up different components of the fractured narrative. Two of the three beach huts are fully interactive ‘stations’ wherein audience members record, manipulate and reflect on their own voices and identity prompted by instructions to complete and record sentences (for example: Who would I be if..., and When I told them that...). Fragments of these recordings are then mixed live into the ongoing soundscape that comprises the central element of the installation aspect of the work. 

During the initial presentation at FADO Performance Art in Toronto 2012, we discovered the distinct potential of the interactive installation component of the work and how it functions outside of the time-based performance component of Whiston’s narrative. The ideal scenario for presentation would allow for a period of spectator interaction prior to each performance, a forty-five minute performance, followed by an additional interactive segment wherein spectators may hear their own contributions to the sound track in context.

11 How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

École St. Patrick High School Presents: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

 

Power, sex, ambition, greed... it's just another day at the office in this classic satire of big business.

Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever satire on corporate life. How To Succeed In Business Without Really Tryingfollows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, a loveable scamp who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder.  Laugh along as Finch rises from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.

An irreverent and tuneful romp, jam-packed with sly, swift, and sharp jabs to the funny bone, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying is a surefire hit for young and old alike!

(You may need more later).  Approx. 4 skeins of embroidery thread will also be needed later but not at class. NOTE: This class is a prerequisite for any mukluk class as you have to have duffle liners made before you can make mukluks.

Alex Cuba is a Cuban-Canadian singer/songwriter who sings in Spanish and English. He has won two Juno Awards for World Music Album of the Year: in 2006 for Humo De Tabaco, and in 2008 for his second album, Agua Del Pozo. In 2010, he won the Latin Grammy for Best New Artist and most recently received a Latin Grammy on November 21, 2013.

Collaborators on his debut, Humo De Tabaco, include Ron Sexsmith and Corinne Bailey Rae. “Lo Mismo Que Yo,” a duet with Sexsmith, became a hit in the UK Singles Chart, reaching #52. His music reflects primarily Latin and African influences, with a mix of funk, jazz and pop.

In 2009, he co-wrote and recorded a duet with fellow Canadian Nelly Furtado. “Mi Plan” turned out to be the title track for her fourth studio album of the same name. Cuba co-wrote more than half of the songs on Furtado’s album.

Alex Cuba is a rebel. “When it comes to creativity, I need to go to places I’ve never been before,” he says. With the wanderlust of a world traveler, the Cuban-Canadian singer/songwriter explores new sonic spaces on Ruido En El Sistema / Static in the System. Following the compass points of rock, soul, pop, and Latin-funk on his fourth album, Cuba continues his journey as a critically acclaimed independent artist who’s charted his own destiny across the world stage while earning a growing legion of devoted listeners at each new juncture.

As rebels are often wont, Alex Cuba views his music as a liberating force. It’s a quality that’s transmitted through the artist’s songs and has made him a fascinating exception to the staid rules of category. He explains, “The purpose of my music is to free up people, to free up musicians, to free up writers and composers and creators in the world. That is the purpose of why I do music. Music, for me, is not one style. I’m not creating for one kind of people.” Armed with a Gibson ES355, Alex Cuba consistently challenges perceptions about what Latin music is, and who listens to it, by simply being himself.

28 The Yellowknife Shamanic Journeying Workshop

The workshop provides an entry level journeying experience and will teach you the core techniques that shamans use to journey to non-ordinary reality. The purpose of learning these techniques is to restore lost power in your own life and support healing and wholeness. No indigenous shamanic practices are appropriated in learning “core shamanism” as it is taught in this workshop.

28 Duffle Gauntlet Mittens with Rabbit Fur Trim Class

Saturday, February 28 from 12-6 pm

$120 all supplies included, maximum 8 people

Learn how to make a pair of gauntlet mittens. Gauntlets are a longer style which go over top of the cuff of your coat. You will make a duffle mitten with two rows of rabbit fur trim and designer ribbon, which will be custom-fitted to your hand. Mittens will be lined with fleece.  (If you bead, mittens can be easily beaded after you have made them).  You will likely be able to finish both pairs of mittens during this class.
