Lev Snowe - Video Shoot at Forth with Charlie Baby

22852952_1598846420183025_7393595028302172359_n.jpg

Lev Snowe is going to be flying off to Los Angeles for the winter, so to send him off we're playing a sweet lil show at Forth with our cool new friend Charlie Baby! 

We'll also be shooting a video of our live set, so expect plants, lights and a wonderfully psychedelic mood.

Lev and George will be playing some records afterwards, so you don't have to walk home in the cold quite so soon

Lev Snowe, if you don't know:

Winnipeg’s Lev Snowe makes a synth-heavy brand of psychedelic dream-pop that is equal parts washed out and danceable, simultaneously laid-back and electric. Lush electronics bloom around the band’s shimmering guitar and rhythmic grooves, while Snowe’s reverb-soaked voice drifts nostalgically in and out focus.

After Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin) die in a car accident, they find themselves stuck haunting their country residence, unable to leave the house.

Their efforts attract Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), a rambunctious spirit whose "help" quickly becomes dangerous for the Maitlands and innocent Lydia.

THE WILLOWS IN CONCERT

22154230_1292575824185953_2228862931012518032_n.jpg

"Tea for Three" by The Willows - a potent brew of caffeinated jazz and mellow, chamomile-infused balladry featuring a who's who of the Canadian jazz music scene.

Hailing from Edmonton Alberta, this now Toronto-based trio, The Willows, release their debut album Tea For Three (Flatcar Records/Fontana North), a potent brew of caffeinated Gypsy jazz to mellow, chamomile-infused balladry. The signature nostalgic charm and remarkable, refreshing harmonies of sophisticated songstresses Krista Deady (contralto), Andrea Gregorio (soprano) and Lauren Pedersen (mezzo-soprano), will transport you to a more quaint, refined, yet adventurous time in music. 

The Willows are joined by a dashing trio of bass, guitar, and drums.

Casati is a Winnipeg-based Folk trio made up of Grace Hrabi on ukulele, Jesse Popeski on guitar, and Quintin Bart on bass (and sometimes hurdy-gurdy), with all three contributing vocals. Their debut album There Will Be Days (April 2017) is a collection of 10 original songs with emphasis on creativity, interaction and inventiveness in the music, and honesty, sincerity, and playfulness in the lyrics.

*****

Sun Gaze is a one man indie rock band, layering smooth vocal harmonies over punchy melodic guitar riffs with half a drum set to keep the beat -- Bright melodies shine through stormy psych-rock clouds, grounded by honest song-writing.

NUIT BLANCHE PARTY AT FORTH

NUIT BLANCHE PARTY AT FORTH
9:30pm - 2am

DJ's, Art Installations, Yummy Treats ad Cold Drinks. If you are looking for a place to cut a rug, come check out Forth. We are opening up all area of the building for a multi floor party! 
Cover $5 at the door. 
 

LIGHT / SOUND
6pm -9pm

The interior spaces of forth will be activated with multiple video, film and projection installations in a variety of locations throughout the building.

Multiple artists will be represented, working in a variety of mediums. 

Visitors are welcome to explore from the Gallery in the lower level, to the Cafe on the main floor, all the way up to the rooftop.

MUSIC FOR LINES AND DOTS by Aaron Zeghers
16mm and digital media installation - Gallery


Light and sound intermingle in temporal sculpture in this multi-media installation. The artist acts as animator, the illustrations act as composer and machines act as grandstand band. If music can trigger vision (ie. synaesthesia), can images therefore trigger the audible? Can machines - like humans - hear light and see sound? Sequences of animated lines and dots are intermittently triggered through various analog and digital mediums to create a cacophonic symphony. 

VOYAGE INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE CHEESE NIP - Ryan Steel
16mm Installation - Gallery

Grilled onions and a slice of processed Cheddar cheese 6.49. Each layer of Winnipeg’s most treasured delicacy (the Cheese Nip) is printed onto 16mm film loops. Throughout the night each level of this Sal’s dish will be projected, deconstructing our city’s iconography. 


ITN 2017: RIOT RESIST REVOLT REDUX
9PM - MIDNIGHT
Multi/Interdisciplinary Theatre - Front Patio

When the water is too polluted to drink, and the air is impossible to breathe, how will we go on? We have created stars to replace the stars we can no longer see… but what happens when even they are no longer enough to sustain us? A companion piece to the play, “Riot Resist Revolt Repeat” by Frances Koncan, “Riot Resist Revolt Redux” is a deeper exploration of Indigenous and European mythology surrounding the creation of our world, and the relationship between humankind and the planet upon which we live. A half-hour sensory journey through the diverse landscapes of human existence and hidden corners of human consciousness.

BISON ON THE HORIZON
6PM - 6AM - Rooftop Installation

Gaze upwards to witness a majestic symbol of the prairie galloping forth across Forth’s rooftop. (visible from Banatyne)

Wall-to-Wall: Hotel Room A Performance by Ming Hon and More

Wall-to-Wall: Hotel Room A Performance by Ming Hon and More

Join us all night at Forth Projects as Wall-to-Wall takes over the entire building as a full blown Hotel. The night will feature the
incomparable Ming Hon, a performance artist and dancer, launching a new immersive piece in which she transforms the entire lower level of Forth into a hotel, complete with all the amenities and happenings one would expect, as well as several that will surprise you. To complement this new work, we will also be having a live music performance by Marisolle and dance party with DJs Super Shonek and Louie Lovebird will keep you moving all night long.

Ming Hon will be working in residence downstairs at Forth to research for a new work in progress 'Only the Dead Wear Shoes to Bed'. Developing a performance that will include elements of dance, performance, video, and installation. Hon will create a performance that includes footage prerecorded of herself spending an evening in a hotel room. Projecting these images of herself, she will turn the gallery space into a mock double queen standard hotel room, creating a duet between her past self and the current self. 

The morbidity of the title comes from a line in the Italian neorealist film Ossession. A drifter running away from the mess he has stirred up in a small town is advised to take off his shoes before sleeping. In 'Only the Dead Wear Shoes to Bed', a woman luxuriates in the paramaters of a standard double queen room. For the audience it is slowly revealed that the room is an idyllic imagined refuge from the world outside, pre apocalyptic, warstricken, and blazing from environmental disaster. Playing with the absurdity of clinging onto this clean, privileged, environment of clean white sheets and room service against the raging reality outside. On a ship of fools, the dining room string section dressed in their best formal attire play the Titanic out.
