About the event

HUSK

ANJA enters stage-left reading an instruction

manual. She eyes Calvin and places the manual

down on the chair. Cautiously, she approaches it,

watching it warily. Standing in front of it, she

raises her hand, like a child apprehensively

reaching a hand to a dangerous animal, she

extends her hand, placing it on Calvin’s chest.

After a few seconds...

-Joelysa Pankanea & Matthias Falvai

Who is this concert for?

  • Sci-fi fanatics
  • Chamber music enthusiasts
  • Lovers of Scandi-noir

What will I know and what will be new to me?

  • We’ve performed Joelysa Pankanea’s heart-wrenching The First Stage twice, and this concert will feature the world premiere of her new arrangement of The Fifth Stage - together, the pieces are a set of reflections on the death of her parents.  For both, we’ll be joined by Mark Haney on Bass, Martin Fisk on marimba, and Mark Takeshi McGregor on alto flute.
  • Joelysa and her screen writing pal Matthias Falvai are in the process of creating a new immersive and interdisciplinary theatrical work exploring the human relationship with Artificial Intelligence.
  • This new immersive piece will feature local actors, as well as theatrical lighting and sound design

Why shouldn’t I miss this?

  • Joelysa’s immensely personal and beautiful works are fulfilling both to sing and to experience - we’re excited to devote a concert to her music, as well as commission her to create a new piece just for us.
  • We want to create a space to ask questions and explore the dichotomy between organic and inorganic life as the line between the two becomes more and more blurred.
  • We’re also thrilled to be involving a mentorship ensemble from the Vancouver Youth Choir to take part in the genesis and performance of this transcendent new work.
