Please join us on Thursday, September 1 for two free work in progress showings by current artists in residence.

6:00 PM—Kònic thtr: Before the beep

Rosa Sánchez and Alain Baumann of Kònic thtr present excerpts of past works and share the status of their current work in progress, Before the beep—a dance performance piece inside an interactive and distributed installation, activated by viewers via cell phones, online, and in person.

7:30 PM—Guy Maddin: Tales from the Gimli Hospital: Reframed

Commissioned by Performa 11 with the National Arts Centre of Canada, this unique work in progress event pairs the acclaimed filmmaker's classic first feature film with a new live score performed by a remarkable all female Icelandic cast including musicians formerly of the band múm as well as Sigur Rós collaborators Amiina.

Both events are free with limited seating—please arrive early.

Evelyn's Café will open at 5:30 PM with a full menu of meals, snacks, and beverages as well as a selection of wines. Service continues between and after events.
