A Fundraiser by
Join Theatre Encounter as we prod the boundaries of art through musical, visual and performative experimentation.
This is more than simply a fundraiser. Seeking to bridge the gap of artistic mediums, Theatre Encounter uses a music venue as a collaborative means of the integration of Calgary’s diverse community of artists. From the anarcho-rock n roll sounds of the band The Martyr Index, to a movement piece by The Baader-Meinhof Collective, to local and national visual artists on display, the evening promises expectations bursting in excitement and rigour.
Bands: The Martyr Index / Bell Tower / Nushi
Theatre: The Baader-Meinhof Collective
613 – 11th Ave SW
September 24th, 2009 8pm
This evening will host a Silent Auction of local and national artistic talent. Money will go towards Theatre Encounter’s upcoming season and its support of the artistic community through workshops and training.
Theatre Encounter is a not-for-profit company in Calgary, which performs research driven and alternative versions of ‘classic dramatic texts’. Using a distinctively Canadian perspective on classic western literature, Theatre Encounter uses international experience to engage Calgarian audiences in new interpretations of the classics. The Baader-Meinhof Collective is an experimental group of theatrical mayhem.
Theatre Encounter takes its next production, Everyman, through a physical confrontation between the intellect and physical to make relevant the 15th Century theatrical standard as it plots out a provisionary final journey of life by stepping into a metaphoric world of personal qualities and represented values.
