Free and open to the public.
Join Vancouver-based artist Mike Bourscheid for the final presentation of Ledgers (2019), a new performance created in response to Erwin Wurm’s sculptural installation at Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite.
Ledgers is a vocal music composition based on contemporary madrigals. Three singers dressed in costumes inspired by industrial workwear respond to the surrounding urban landscape with their voices and bodies. Throughout the performance, the singers use their costumes and movements to block, direct and support their collective endeavour—the completion of the song.
Prior to this performance, Bourscheid will also be presenting an Artist Talk at the Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver. Find out more »
Commissioned by the Vancouver Art Gallery, Ledgers is choreographed by Mike Bourscheid and composed by Robyn Jacob. Lyrics are written by Vanessa Brown and Mike Bourscheid and performed by Emily Cheung, Hilary Ison and Emily Millard.
