Colloquium: Time Changes: Improvisation, History, and the Body, Vancouver BC

June 20, 2015 - June 21, 2015

June 20-21, 2015
Vancouver, British Columbia
UBC Robson Campus Room C100
10am-5pm
FREE

Time Changes is an academic symposium including presentations from artists, performers, scholars and community members from across the continent, with keynote talks by percussionist-composer-improvisers Gerry Hemingway and Billy Martin, who are both performing at the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival.

The colloquium will focus on social, cultural and artistic encounters with, and depictions of, time and the times in which we live. What does it mean to create in the moment? What are the implications of keeping time or of transgressing time? How does the human body sound its time and place? Can improvisation bring about tangible social or cultural change?

Presenters include Emma Cleary (Staffordshire University), Barry Long (Bucknell University), Brian Jude de Lima, Kathe Gray (York University), Brent Rowan (Wilfrid Laurier University), Neelamjit Dhillon (California Institute of the Arts), David Lee (University of Guelph), and Tom Scholte, Kiran Bhumber and Bob Pritchard (University of British Columbia). David Lee will moderate a screening of Shirley Clarke’s 1985 film Ornette: Made in America, and performing artist presentations include PrOphecy Sun, Rupert Common and the Freestyle Rap Alliance, Julia Úlehla, Kevin McNeilly with Geoff Mitchell, and Ben Brown and Michelle Lui.
