Bozzini Lab Concert

Montreal's Bozzini Quartet perform new works

02 June 2015, 6:00pm
Studio D, SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 W. Hastings, Vancouver V6B 1H4
FREE,

Bozzini Lab Concert

Presented by the School for the Contemporary Arts

The concert is the culmination of the 2015 Bozzini Lab workshop for young composers.

The Bozzini Lab is an intensive workshop on composing for strings intended for young composers in the early to middle stages of their studies or artistic development. The goals of the workshop are to improve technical skills for contemporary writing for strings and string quartet, and to provide a supportive environment for visionary compositional ideas.

The concert will feature performances of works by the participants in the workshop.

ABOUT THE BOZZINI QUARTET
Since 1999, the Bozzini Quartet has been an original voice in new, contemporary, experimental and classical music. Their skew is radically contemporary, propelling the hyper-creative Montréal scene, and beyond. Not content to parlay received wisdom, the quartet cultivates an ethos of risk-taking, and boldly venture off the beaten track. With rigorous qualitative criteria, they have nurtured a vastly diverse repertoire, unbiased by the currents of fashion.This has led to over a hundred and thirty commissioned pieces, as well as close to two hundred other premiered works. A Bozzini Quartet concert is an art happening, with meticulous and sensuous attention to detail.

TOGETHER ( ) APART is an intimate performance installation focused on borders. Composed of a series of live one-on-one encounters, each audience member is invited to travel through divided spaces shared with each performer. Together ( ) Apart examines our relationships to borders as a space of hybridity where differences meet, simultaneously dividing and connecting us and our environment. Exploring the edge of balance, the boundary of the flesh, empathy, territory, presence and absence, each poetic interaction is an attempt to explore physical, social and political aspects of borders. How do we construct our mutable identities? How far does the air we exhale travel? How permeable is the boundary of our flesh? How far can we stretch our perception of space? Do we feel closer to each other when we are together or apart? What lives in the space in-between us? The format of one-on-one performances offers “a unique connection with an-other, the ‘foreign body’ marked by an invitation to respond.“ It offers a precious opportunity to bridge beyond borders, to embrace the edge and to meet-in-difference.

ISABELLE KIROUAC is an MFA candidate in Interdisciplinary Arts at Simon Fraser University's School for the Contemporary Arts. She is an interdisciplinary choreographer, performer and movement educator that has presented her work in North America, Europe, Colombia, Morocco, Senegal, Israel and Palestine. During her time as an MFA student, she researched the concept of border through movement and somatic explorations, which led her to develop a full length interdisciplinary performance, Borderlines, developed in residency at Synapsis Performance and Art Space (California) and presented at the Neither Here Nor There Festival at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts in 2014. This project informed her current work, Together ( ) Apart, an interdisciplinary performance experience for an audience of one integrating choreography, video, text, improvised music, instruments design, space installation and lighting design.

How-To-Register Sessions

These sessions are to familiarize new students with the courses needed as well as a rough and ready primer on how to use the Student Info System.

The sessions will be offered by major.

It is important to try to attend the session for your major as this will be the place the cohort starts to form. The first half hour of the specific sessions will be devoted to introductions and we hope to have students from outside Vancouver attend at least the first half-hour by video conference. Watch for a specific e-mail with details.

There will also be two general sessions - not quite as detailed, but it will get you the information you will need to register.

These sessions are for students who have been admitted, not general info-sessions.
