JOIN US AT: 918 Bathurst, Toronto April 13th and 14th, 2017 – final creation installation – limited seating Harbourfront Centre NextSteps, Toronto – Canadian Premiere – September 14,15,16, 2017 Silo City, Marine A Terminal, Buffalo – American Premiere – July 2018 PROJECT INFO: For seven years Canadian writer/choreographer Gerry Trentham and American visual artist Kaersten Colvin- Woodruff, and their collaborators have been refining their new inter-arts work; The Apology Project. Don't miss out on this opportunity to share in the final creation installation before the work moves to premiers at Harbourfront in Toronto and Silo City in Buffalo. The Apology Project, produced by lbs/sq" performance, is a collision of performance, visual and media art examining the nature of falling, its shame and oppression, the individual body or collective nation, through a contemporary lens of inclusivity. In a time when individuals and nations seem in a struggle to agree on what they collectively cherish these distinctive artists feel it vital to research and challenge classical western contexts of art creation, performance and curation. Multiple disciplines establish a dialogue that challenge division. This bi-national collaboration has developed into a duet with Gerry Trentham and Kevin Ormsby within the landscape of Colvin-Woodruff extraordinary art and projections of excepts from Valerie Buhagiar's remarkable films. The work – ironic, real and challenging – is a meditation on the deep questions of the nature of an apology that can change a community. Written, directed and choreographed by Gerry Trentham Created with Visual artist Kaersten Colvin-Woodruff Performed with Kevin Ormsby With artistic contributions by associate director/dramaturg Diane Roberts filmmaker Valerie Buhagiar dance dramaturg Denise Fujiwara lighting designer Simon Rossiter projection designer Conor Moore documentary video Jesse Deganis-Librera technical advisor James Kendal rehearsal director Oriana Pagnotta floor design Jeff Livingston
