We’re heading west!
In the next few weeks Maya and Jaimie will be creating a series of Interactive Shadow Installations in Vancouver. These installations rely on audience participation and build collective stories about architecture and the human body, the memory of land, the urban and the imaginary landscape and how we live and move in these spaces.
We’re pleased to be working with Vancouver based sound artist Paul Bennett on each of these shows.
Here’s were you can find us!
Saturday June 16 and Sunday June 17, 10:00am – 5:00pm
A Journey in Shadow
Join Montreal-based Mere Phantoms in creating the city of your wildest imagination. Build a 3D shadow puppet to add to the collaborative installation, and use handheld lights to cast shadows large and small as we embark on A Journey in Shadow.
Friday July 6, 9:00pm-1:00am
This interactive shadow installation invites the audience to contemplate and respond to the systematic, regulated, and gridded nature of city living. Situated inside of a human-scale shadow-box this piece explores what happens when pathways become grids, dwellings become cubicles, and movements become regulated.
