ECHO: Memories of the World KINGSTON




ECHO: Memories of the World

This is an international multi-media project exploring the question: HOW DO WE SPEAK TO THE FUTURE? Join us for the second workshop of ECHO: MEMORIES OF THE WORLD, a work using music, narration, images, and film to explore models of knowledge sharing in four areas of the world: Canada, Norway, Austria, and Mali. The Isabel hosts the Phase Two residency of this project culminating in a free workshop performance. During Phase Two, the artists hone the reworked presentation flow and framework which is now based on the exploration of memory in four sections: the birth of memory, memory stored, memory suppressed, and memory as hope.

Artists in phase 1 and 2 have included: Gryphon Trio (Project Co-creator, performers), Reneltta Arluk (Project Co-creator, Director of Indigenous Arts at the Banff Centre), Alison Mackay (Project Co-creator, concert designer), Marion Newman (mezzo soprano), Diely Mori Tounkara (Malian kora), Rawdna Carita Eira (Sàmi poet and playwright), Nordic Voices, Ry Moran (Co-creator, Founding Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation and currently Associate University Librarian—Reconciliation at UVic Libraries), Andrew Balfour (composer), Eliot Britton (composer), Bjarne Kvinnsland (composer and producer) Anne Beate Hovind (curator of Norway’s Future Library), and Caroline Hollway (producer).
