PRESENTED WITH SFU’S INSTITUTE FOR PERFORMANCE STUDIES
Ideas Series events are designed for all audience members who seek a deeper engagement with artists and the work they create. Ideas Series events are open to the public.
Critical Ideas is a three part series in partnership with Simon Fraser University’s Institute for Performance Studies that brings together artists, critics, scholars and audiences to discuss formal, social and ideological issues affecting performance practice and reception today. Panels are moderated by Peter Dickinson and are free and open to the public.
Sound + Space
Join curator and sound artist Aki Onda for a talk on contemporary Japanese sound art, as exemplified by three distinct artists in PuSh’s 2019 program: ASUNA, Marginal Consort and Tetsuya Umeda. Their work combines the use of unconventional and self-made instruments with analogue equipment, so the visual arrangement of the objects itself become a “score.” Combined with the individual architecture and acoustics of the site, sound transforms and creates space, guiding the flow and development of the performance itself.
SPEAKERS: Aki Onda, followed by conversation with Kazuo Imai (Marginal Consort) + additional invited guests
MODERATOR: Peter Dickinson, Director, SFU’s Institute for Performance Studies
