Soiree Experimentale No. 2

Soirée Expérimentale is a curated cabaret series that highlights local artists working in experimental music and performance art. It is a place to workshop projects that bend genres, risk absurdity, and explore new concepts, methods or techniques.

We are thrilled to have the following artists joining us for SÉ no. 2:

Katie B. /// Performance Art

Katie will be dealing from her deck of soul collage cards in a performance that is sure to be impactful on all.

Levi and Leroi Bent /// Dance

Levi and Leroi Bent are traditional Okanagan dancers and we are very honoured to have this father and son pair sharing their art with us during the next Soirée.

Drolet & Lines /// Music

Mathieu Drolet and Stephanie Lines are a part of the alt-country duo Yarrows but shall be bringing to the Soirée a different flavour of work. If you got the chance to see Mathieu improvise at the 557 last year then you'll have an inkling of what to expect. We look forward to hearing what kind of ambient, noisy bliss these two create for us.

Liana the Ghost /// Poetry

Liana the Ghost is a multi-disciplinary artist from Montréal QC. Whether working in painting, photography, video art or writing, Liana's eyes and spririt are drawn to the ephemeral, fleeting and forgotten, often probing what is dismissed as ugly and uncovering hidden potential and poetics.

Lisa Hall /// Poetry

Lisa Hall will be doing live poem construction from a pool of randomly selected words. Her poems will be worked and rearranged, letting chance form the stories and meanings that unfold.

M. Luzod /// Music

Murphy Luzod (Tom Reimer of Rainboard) will be joining us all the way from Salmo BC with his guitar, experimental video projections and various other gadgets to give a multi-media improvised sound art performance.

Tavis Weir /// Storytelling

Returning from the last Soirée, Tavis Weir is this time performing solo to share a family story in an off-kilter manner. Tavis's method will call into question how our stories, based on the subjectivity of memory and personal perspective, can stray from what may have actually happened. Reality will be bent and questioned.

Entry to the event is $15, which goes towards the performers and the Penticton Art Gallery.
