NEWmatica - The Power of Percussion! New music, modern tap dance, and the building itself played as a musical instrument
Held in the 23-storey Mill Concentrator at the Britannia Mine Museum (a National Historic site), NEWmatica celebrates the power of percussion with FRINGE PERCUSSION (Jonathan Bernard, Martin Fisk, Brian Nesselroad and Daniel Tones), soprano HEATHER PAWSEY, and contemporary tap dancers DANNY NIELSEN and DAYNA SZYNDROWSKI.
Members of the public (through a series of public workshops) will join the performers during the concert to, literally, play the building as a musical instrument itself.
Featuring "Tantrika" by Canada's most famous composer, R. Murray Schafer, in a celebration of his 80th birthday year, with music of John Cage and Canadian composer Jocelyn Morlock.
DRESS ADVISORY: As the Mill is unheated, please dress warmly, with footwear suitable for uneven terrain.
