EVENT: PME-ART presents: Hospitality 3 – Individualism was a Mistake
Dates: November 19-22, 2008; Source: Sylvie Lachance

With Caroline Dubois, Claudia Fancello and Jacob Wren

Hospitality 3: Individualism was a Mistake

Bringing together the talents of three ingenious artists (Caroline Dubois, Claudia Fancello and Jacob Wren), Hospitality 3: Individualism Was a Mistake focuses on society's difficulty in working together. Collaborating within an indie rock spirit, the artists work towards a genuine sense of connection with the audience, all the while asking if this engagement could make a real difference in our lives and in the world around us.
Jacob Wren and PME-ART are leaders of an exciting underground movement in performance theatre and have amassed a huge following in Europe. This World Premiere in their native land presents a rare opportunity to see this new production before the rest of the globe.
Sound: Radwan Moumneh
Lighting: Philippe Dupeyroux
Created in co-production with Usine C (Montreal) and with the collaboration of Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage (Toronto)

WORKSHOP: hum presents Sound and Movement Improvisation
Date: November 22, 2008; Source: Erika Hennebury

Sound and Movement Improvisation
One-Day workshop taught by Susanna Hood and Nilan Perera

Saturday November 22, 10am – 5pm
The Citadel, 304 Parliament St South of Dundas
Cost $40

Essentially passing on elements of the process they have been cultivating for working together since 1998, Susanna Hood and Nilan Perera offer a one-day crash-course workshop exploring improvisation in dance and music and tools for facilitating the meeting of these two art forms.

We invite participants from both movement and music background to participate in the workshop, but the work can be catered to performers and non-performers of all backgrounds.

The workshop prepares the body to be an instrument for sound and to explore the integration of voice and movement along with exercises and games in rhythm and sound improvisation. Subsequently, participants engage in a broad exploration of the meeting of music and improvisation, where the two forms inform, rather than accompany each other.

When and Where: Sat, Nov 22, 10am – 5pm
The Citadel, 304 Parliament St South of Dundas
Cost $40 ($20 deposit on registration)

For more information and to register:

About Beyond Pressure
'Beyond Pressure' is an independent art organization created to contribute towards the expanding of Myanmar art boundaries. It is initiated and run by local artists who work in their communities to create projects that open up spaces, however small, for self-expression and discourse. As an organization, it operates fluidly, utilizing and forming networks according to necessity. It is therefore an organization close to the ground, highly adaptable, connected and efficient in the restrictive social context of Myanmar. Our foremost aim is to develop the Myanmar performance art scene by creating a festival where foreign and local artists can exchange ideas through workshops, symposia and performances. There is an emerging performance art scene in Myanmar, which remains relatively unknown since there are few chances for Myanmar artists and artists from other countries to meet. Therefore Beyond Pressure offers an important opportunity for artists to network. Another aim is to expand Myanmar art boundaries by showing that performance art offers new possibilities and strategies to grapple with ideas that confront and engage with current political, economical and social issues. We host the festival in relatively public locations to reach out to a broad audience. In a restrictive artistic and political climate, where many artists and organizers work in private settings in order to dare to express themselves freely, we want to show in practice that it is possible in contemporary Myanmar to do outstanding and daring performance art in more public spaces. To imagine life beyond pressure. Beyond Pressure member are Moe Satt (Artistic Director/ Visual & Performance Artist), Mg Day (Coordinator/ Poet, Writer & Translator), Mrat Lunn Htwann (Manager/ Performance Artist), Phyu Mon (Poet- Visual & Performance Artist), Aung Ko (Multi-disciplinary artist), Aung Pyi Sone (Poet & Performance Artist)
