eidolon by Bill James

eidolon2014

Presented by Public Energy
Friday, October 24, 2014 8:00pm

PRE-SHOW CHAT with Ruth Madoc-Jones, director, 7pm in the lobby.
POST-SHOW RECEPTION meet the artists in the lobby following the show.

eidolon noun 1. an idealized person or thing. 2. a specter or phantom.

Bill James’ newest work is inspired by important relationships he has had throughout his life with those who have passed away. While it is his first full-length solo work, it can also be seen as a series of duets with conjured spirits and a duet with composer David Grenon, who creates both live music and architectural soundscapes. Also collaborating on the project is director Ruth Madoc-Jones,whose insightful work across disciplines has made her one of the most in-demand directors in the country. After establishing an international reputation in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto as a dance artist and producer of multidisciplinary events, Bill moved to a farm just outside Peterborough about ten years ago. Since then he has continued to pursue his artistic vision, lately by putting himself in his own work. In 2013 Toronto’s Soulpepper Theatre awarded Bill the Soulpepper Dance Award in the Senior Dance Artist category. That award has supported the creation of eidolon.

The House Of The Devil10622732_637972379650354_1936772569020613276_n

Presented by Trent Film Society
Wednesday October 29, 2014
8:00 PM

Director Ti West “Establishes mood with precision and care of early Polanski” says film critic Jason Zinoman. Tension and mood are key elements in The House of the Devil and West knows how to pace his film just right so as to keep the audience intrigued, avoiding any sense of boredom that could arise in a slowburn satanic thriller.

West demonstrates his love for 1970s and 80s horror cinema by placing the narrative in an 80s backdrop with relevant fashions and sets. Even the cinematography evokes the 80s with the various zoom shots and paused frames in the film’s opening sequence.

Bahamasbahamas-admat201472dpi

Friday, January 9, 2015 8:00pm

With guest: Jennifer Castle

Afie Jurvanen isn’t from the Bahamas. He’s a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie–a working class town in rural Ontario. But his chosen epithet is fitting. Since 2009 he’s been making music under the name Bahamas–writing songs about sunsets, love affairs, and making out with crooked smiles. Through simple arrangements, he charts an escape route from the snow belt to the coral reefs. His new album, Bahamas Is Afie, will be released August 19, 2014 on Brushfire Records/Universal.

Bahamas is Afie is a coming of age record. Self-titled and self-produced – It is the next step in the evolution of Jurvanen’s songcraft, guitar mastery, and melodic pop hooks – following his previous full-lengths Pink Strat (2009) and Barchords (2011). Bahamas is Afie remains a sparse, moving, headphone album, complemented by a more developed arrangement of strings, brass, winds, orchestral percussion, and chamber choruses that transport the listener from moving seasto a search for strength, to a place of resolve and comfort.

Carlos Del Junco & The Blues Mongrelscarlosdeljunco2014poster72dpi

Saturday, January 31, 2015 8:00pm

Carlos is one of those players whose music is so advanced that when it comes to awards, it’s either retire the category or rephrase the question “Best Harmonica Player Not Named Carlos”. This includes two Gold Medals from the Hohner World Harmonica Championship in Trossingen, Germany, as well as multiple national awards in Canada.

To say he plays the harmonica is like saying “Jimi Hendrix plays guitar”. He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he’s holding every colour in the musical rainbow right there in his hands.

Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz (hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”). The emphasis is on blues, but they are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.

Carlos and his Blues Mongrels deliver a no-holds-barred display of fun and melodic virtuosity. Carlos’ Blues Mongrels are Eric St. Laurent on guitars, Henry Heillig on bass, and Jorn Andersen on drums.

Artist website: http://www.carlosdeljunco.com/

QUOTES:

“…a model of focus and urgency..a true virtuoso..
Brad Wheeler – The Globe and Mail

“One listen to the man who bent his first notes on the harmonica at the age of fourteen and it’s obvious he’s in a class with such greats as Toots Theilmans, Paul Butterfield, and Howard Levy…
Peter North – The Edmonton Journal

“FOUR (out of 4) STARS – Latest Cd Review: MONGREL MASH
It’s not likely that you’ll ever hear the harmonica played so well and in so many different ways than at the hands of Cuban-born Torontonian Carlos del Junco. But what makes his album an especial treat is the sheer let’s-do-it positive energy that radiates from the eclectic collection of nine tracks. Mongrel Mash refers to the crazy mix of styles, ranging from deep, heavy-duty blues-rock (“Mojo”) to Herb Alpert’s slightly cheesy “Slick,” and jivin’ “Lil’ Laptop” to sweet, rootsy ballad “The Field,” which arrives via languid dobro set-up. Del Junco may be the headliner, but the songs and arrangements shine the light on an excellent band of equals who all get some time in the sonic spotlight. There is something here to put a smile on anyone’s face — and it only gets better with each listen. My favourite: Del Junco’s own “My Favourite Uncle,” a gently hip-swinging sweep down Louisiana way.

Ntu & Skwatta by Vincent S.K. Mantsoe

Presented by Public Energy
Tuesday, February 3, 2015 8:00pm

POST-SHOW TALK BACK with the artist following the show.

Vincent Sekwati Koko Mantsoe was born and raised in Soweto, South Africa. Born in the middle of Apartheid, he was more interested in cultural growth than in politics. As a child he and his siblings woke everyday to the sound of drums, when his grandmother, mother and aunt were greeting the Ancestors. A descendant of a long line of Sangomas (traditional healers), Mantsoe participated in traditional ritualsinvolving the use of song, dance and drumming. Mantsoe does not believe that he is a Sangoma, although he possesses their spiritual energy. Currently his creative activities revolve around the existential challenge of bridging between the past, the present and the future. Creating a universe through dance, he invites the audience in to join him on his sometimes humorous, more often painful, and always extremely physical journey.

Marathon by Aharona Israel

Presented by Public Energy
Thursday, February 12, 2015 8:00pm

POST-SHOW TALK BACK with the artists following the show

Marathon has been a hit at festivals around the world since its debut in 2012 and comes to Peterborough between the new Progress Festival in Toronto and the Undercurrents Festival in Ottawa. Marathon uses endless running as a metaphor for the daily experience of young Israelis, in a highly physical theatre work that pushes its three performers to the limit. Which of them will survive? As time goes by, their journey becomes more difficult and gradually the wounds of Israeli society open up and its default options become apparent. Through the performers’ own stories the work reflects on subconscious elements in Israeli culture and mentality, such as a constant sense of emergency and a desperate holding onto ideas and ideals. Aharona Israel is a an interdisciplinary artist whose varied training – she is trained in dance and holds a B.A. in architecture – informs a body of work that combines intimate research into body and movement with a strong sensibility to social and political themes. Her works have been seen in festivals and theatres in Israel and across Europe since 2002.
