23 Janel Jarvis – The Soundtrack That Wasn't There
with Leigh Macdonald, Hartley Stephenson, Victoria Wallace
Found 8mm home movies from the late 1950́s/early 1960́s will be shown with live choral accompaniment in the naturally dark and acoustically magnificent Trunk Room.
Janel Jarvis works as an accompanist, piano teacher, vocal coach and recreation facilitator. She also very much enjoys teaching bellydance and has been at it for 16 years.
45 Andrew Mark and Sally Morgan – Lostsolastalgia
Responding to the fragmented architecture and the dream residues that The Mount radiates, Lostsolastalgia is a durational performance installation rooted in concepts of mourning environmental loss and placelessness. Composed of sound and movement inspired by/from working with site as collaborator, Morgan and Mark investigate loss and resistant mourning.
Sally Morgan and Andrew Mark are both performing artists and scholars working on interdisciplinary projects merging Environmental Studies and Fine Arts.
Hermione is fascinated by the story of Abraham, and how faith is reflected in our communities. Stories from the Mount are mirrored with his story. This piece is a reflection of these, as she asks what characteristics make Abraham the leader that he is, and how faith plays out in the life of a Sister.
Hermione Rivison slipped into storytelling after working in theatre. Now her performances are the old, timeless stories; fairytales, fables, teaching tales from around the world and personal tales. She is involved in Peterborough Storytellers and is available for workshops and house concerts.
33 Jess Rowland – Sumido: Quiet Pandemonium
Interactive participatory art in which one person at a time, every 15 minutes, is guided to a remote room to be... interviewed? ...interrogated? ...given an experience ...and to become momentarily a part of the installation-performance.
Jess Rowland is an interdisciplinary artist who has decided that the labyrinthine corridors of the Mount are perfect for a psychological intrigue and improvisational interactive performance. A graduate of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, she has worked in video, performance, poetry, and installation art, often through Public Energy’s Emergencies and Alley Waltzes.
36 Christy Stoeten – Until Tender-Crisp
with Sonia Gemmiti
A one-on-one experience between performer and voyeur. A secret look into the cyclical nature of life, exploring themes of time, nostalgia and isolation.
The lure of sparkling costumes brought Christy Stoeten to dance class at the age of three in Peterborough, Ontario. A graduate of the School of Toronto Dance Theatre, Christy is an independent dance artist working in Toronto.
16 The Zippa Dee Doo Dah Soul Chorus – The Singing Sinners of Mercy
under the direction of Curtis Driedger
Filling the chapel with song, as in the days of old.
Curtis Driedger is involved in a wide range of musical endeavors, both short and long term, in the Peterborough area. The Zippa Dee Doo Dah Soul Chorus is just one of his community-based projects.
