Eastern Edge Gallery & The Festival of New Dance present a new creative exchange that explores intersections between visual arts and performing arts practices. This project is made up of two key components:

– An experimental, interactive, collaborative space called The Guest Room. This fluid exhibition invites the public to imagine, animate and activate the gallery in relation to one’s own ideas, impulses and object association.

EASTERN EDGE GALLERY

How many times can we pick ourselves back up? How many versions of ourselves have we left behind?
BROKEN is an excerpt of a solo mask piece currently in development that examines these, and other questions, as they relate to doubt, self-worth, and our personal relationships. BROKEN is being presented in the Temporary Theatre – an 18x12x8 portable micro theatre structure. The Temporary Theatre is an intimate space that encourages truthful performance, or very slick deception.

For the thing I feared has overtaken me, and what I dreaded has befallen me.I am not at ease or quiet; I have no rest… -Job 3: 25

I want to throw myself at the floor… but what will I do when I get there?  -Andy Jones

Rise and… , selflessly embodied by Andy Jones, is a kinetic exploration of grief and getting out of bed.

Kilautiup Songuninga (Strength of the Drum)

STAN NOCHASAK, SUSIE MERKURATSUK, & SOLOMON SEMIGAK
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 12:00PM
EASTERN EDGE GALLERY

“With the Kilautiup (drum) and katuk (drumstick), we create our own unique style of Inuit drum dance choreography and each song has its own drum dance choreography. All of the drum dancing is symbolic, tells a story about some Life Lesson such as Circle of Life, Unity, Oneness, Equality, unique and universal role of women, men, children, family and humanity, underlined since antiquity by spirituality and nobility, from we, as Inuit, can share with the world and forever proud to do so, whenever there is opportunity anywhere, anytime.  To keep the real Spirit alive.”
