Date: April 26, 2014
Time: 7:30 pm

On April 26, 2014 thingNY will be presented by New Music Edmonton! I’m so excited to return to my home province for this special performance, please come!

For our first concert in Canada, we will present a new version of their opera-in-progress This takes place close by. This set of interweaving operatic stories, scenes and soundscapes depicts people and places before, during and after devastating storms. Told often in the dark, this experimental opera explores the eerie, the absurd and the abstract through song, speech and whispering.
