Improv in Newfoundland
Chris Tonelli’s Improvising Spaces series continues to bring participatory improvisation to St. John’s. Early in September, English composer Trevor Wishart came to town to work with local performers. Later in the month, Toronto-based vocalist Christine Duncan presents vocal workshops Sep. 15 and 16, culminating in a performance by the St. John’s Vocal Exploration Choir at The Ship Pub on Thursday, Sep. 17. On Sep. 18, Duncan and percussionist Jean Martin perform as the duo Barnyard Drama at the Arts and Culture Centre. These events are sponsored by MMaP Research Centre, Sound Symposium, and IICSI.
