Performing at the event NIGHT TO REMEMBER

I WAS HAPPY TO BE INVITED AND PERFORM AT the 6th Annual, A Night To Remember Gala in support of the Alzheimer Society of Montreal.

The purpose of A Night To Remember is to help dispel myths about the disease and eliminate the stigma associated with dementia. The needs are increasing exponentially so our goal is to invest now in building dementia-friendly communities right here in Montreal. Our goal is to inspire you with a feeling of hope about the ability for people to continue enjoying life. From in-home respite and art therapy workshops to counseling and educational support groups there are many ways to improve the quality of life for people at all stages of the disease.

Quartiers Danses

I will be participating with my new creation Constellation in dance festival Quartiers Danses in Montréal, performing on September 10th at Cinquième Salle at Place des Arts. 

CONSTELLATION

In Constellation, rising choreographer Eva Kolarova uses the imagery of the night sky to reflect on loneliness in a world of frantic entanglement. The frenzied nature of our cities, our countries and our own web of anxieties cause us to lose sight of the larger picture; the great expanse of stars above. She faces our feelings of solitude and insignificance head-on, reminding us to look up at that cradle of constellations; that map of history and civilization which connects us all.

Stream of light | Eva Kolarova

A beam of light crosses the windowed door of the hall and invites the outside world into the house. On the shelf, an old hat, a souvenir from past travels… In this contemporary ballet, three performers remind us of our insignificance in the face of the greatness of the stars that look over us.

  • Lighting  Daniel Ranger

Art Crush

Collaboration between Eva Kolarova and Art Crush.

ART CRUSH is an invitation to get into the music and to revisit pieces that may be familiar for some, and new to others. It's a window to experience them through the prism of other art forms. The concert can be described as an on-stage visual 'transmission' of mood and emotions from one artistic discipline to another and back again, forming a chain reaction or cycle of inspiration.

The ensemble unites musicians, dancers and visual artists on stage together.

What ignites the idea for a choreography, how does the music affect the dancer or inspire the line of an artist? How will they interpret the music's emotions, colours and nuances?
A show based on the classical chamber music setting, Art Crush hopes to create a powerful concert experience that transports the public past standard boundaries and explore a different way to experience these musical works. Musicians, dancers and visual artists will be on stage together.

A premiere performance you don’t want to miss! The Art Crush Show ensemble presents, in its entirety, Canadian Richard Reed Parry’s debut album, recently released on the Deutsche Grammophon label. A member of the rock band Arcade Fire, composer and multi-instrumentalist Parry has created innovative, experimental music that’s played in sync with the heart and breathing rates of the musicians performing it.

Saturday 4th June, 2016 at 7:30pm

Multi-purpose centre, 81 Hooper St., Saint-Lambert

Princess Agnus Dei
An independent production created and directed by: Astrid Lloyd. Original score by Ralph Denzer
Thursday, June 4th, 2015. 2pm and 8pm. Tour de Lévis, Ile Ste Helene, Parc Jean Drapeau, Montreal 

Princess Agnus Dei is a multimedia performance set against an elaborate architectural installation, Hammock. The focus of the work is the character Princess, performed by dancer Eva Kolarova, elaborated with an original score, featuring piano, violin, clarinet, and voice; all punctuated with a heartbeat of Métis jig. The costume and installation are constructed of industrial materials: white electrical cable, red marrettes, black rubber tie-downs, and white zip ties. The architectural element, a giant hammock and tube ladder made of cable lace, functions as the bed of Princess. Both materially and conceptually, the structure is an extension of the costume, body and persona of Princess. Using traditional bobbin lacemaking techniques, 40 custom made steel bobbins, Hammock has been under construction since 2008.

Princess Agnus Dei and Hammock belong to a much larger art/life experiment called The Superwoman Project; A Novel in Four Costumes (2000- ongoing). The Superwoman Project can be described as a freedom quest, a study of archetypes, and an experiment in performativity–– how individuals perform themselves into being. Each of the four costumes represents a distinct persona, who is also responsible for her own body of work. The project addresses a wide range of interconnected themes including sexuality and violence, freedom and bondage, liminality (interiority vs. exteriority), and the metaphysical relationship between bodies and architecture.

The character of Princess was developed in response to horrific images of slaughtered women which surfaced during the 2006 trial of mass murderer Robert Pickton. First exhibited as solo performance, the current iteration of Princess is an ensemble production comprised of several performing artists. The ritual performance of Princess casts out the Sad Victim archetype.

As a Master of Fine Arts candidate at Concordia University, Lloyd has been studying the intersections of performance art, theatre and ritual. Following the performance of Princess Agnus Dei in Montreal, the massive cable lace structure will be installed in a grove of Trembling Aspens on the shores of Lac Matagami in Northern Quebec where it will remain indefinitely. The June 4 performance draws together a rich group of artists all interested in experimental performance work.

Death and the maiden, creation from Stephan Thoss

GERMAN EXPRESSIONISM & PERPETUAL MOTION

Inspired by the eponymous score by Franz Schubert, this creation is rooted in Greek mythology : the abduction of Kore, the daughter of Demeter, goddess of the harvest, by the God of Hell, Death. This myth, a veritable analogy of the cycle of seasons, was

Stephan Thoss’ inspiration. Death and the Maiden is sure to be a meditation on the themes of time, from youth to old age. German expressionism and perpetual movement are hallmarks of this deeply moving ballet.

Presented at Place des Arts, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens
