PWYC (recommended $20).
The Powers are Emily Pelstring, Jessica Mensch and Katherine Kline. They are a band, an artistic collaboration, and a research-creation group committed to weaving alternate realities through video, music, story-telling, dance, and ritualistic performance. Their speculative worlds are inhabited by animal kin and monstrous creatures, haunted by other-dimensional entities, and erupting with the repressed archetypes of classical myth. The Powers invoke a pantheon of characters and deities—earthly, embodied, and otherwise— and include them in feminist reconfigurations of hetero-patriarchal myths. They draw inspiration from mythological trinities of sisters such as the Graeae, the Gorgons, and the Fates, and recast these icons in reclaimative, chaotic media events.
Bridget Moser is a performance and video artist whose work combines strategies from prop comedy, experimental theatre, existential anxiety and intuitive dance. Her work has been reviewed and featured in Artforum, Frieze, Art in America, Canadian Art (RIP) and others.
Hamilton, Ontario’s Randy Gagne (Man Made Hill) has been an underground music staple on Planet Ontario for the past 15-20 years. His live performance congeals performance art, delusional funk, soundtrack music, and existential comedy into a dank and bewildering physical experience. Originating in the basement murk of the noise tape scene, he has thus blossomed into a modern-day maniacal pop purveyor! Utilizing lurid character exploration, and pan-sensorial poetics whilst probing the depths of the entertainment world, Man Made Hill has honed a unique combination all cryptically narrated with his patented ghoulish crooning, vivid lyrics, and desperate dance in the face of existential dread.
