SUMMERWORKS: iSHOW (from Montreal)

 

Note:  We have secured 20 tickets each to the 3 hottest shows at SummerWorks..Aug 8-18th.  Every year this juried festival sells out, and will be profiled in NOW and Globe/Mail next week.  All tickets are $15/per show.  Code when ordering is MEETUP (either online or via phone).  summerworks.ca and/or[masked]

(first show..)

Through a sequence of scenes, iShow explores the many facets that make up encounters, whether they are virtual or real. Twelve artists seated around a table, projected on three screens submit themselves to the unknowns of today’s technology. They question a simple action that is done every day by most of us : Every day, we show. Every day, I show.

    It was an amazing show, impossible to describe in words – you had to be there. This interactive performance-art piece scrutinizes our relationship with social media, and how technology both enhances and cripples our self-awareness and identity. Walter Benjamin ‘d have been proud.
    I highly recommend it for those in the marketing/design professions, and anyone who checks their smartphone on a 10min increment – like myself. Thank you Greg for organizing this. For those who missed this, 3 more showings: http://summerworks.ca/2013/portfolio/ishow/ ,

    sounds good!
    Ivona, if you can't make it at the second cup, see if you can find us in front of the theatre. We will be probably in the line.

      okay, i'll give it a shot - though it's probably going to be tricky as we don't know each other.
