ALL CAPS NO SPACES
October 26 / 7:30 pm / Engineered Air Theatre (Arts Common)
Multimedia performance by Linda Bouchard (concept, music, video), Keith Turnbull (stage direction) and the Grdina/Houle/Loewen Trio.
Using a graphical score, stock and pre-recorded material, and live processing, “All Caps No Space” explores the amplified solitude we experience within the barrage of information that besieges us through the medias. The creation of the work is motivated by the desire to give a voice to our individual experiences as we witness the world’s tragedies, specifically captured in the written and still images of daily media. Three live musicians perform live and interact with a table that projects live video onto a large screen.
