    FREEDOM SINGER

    A Project: Humanity Production Embarks on a Fall 2017 National Tour

    – Cross Canada Tour featuring JUNO nominee Khari Wendell McClelland,

    JUNO nominee Tanika Charles and acclaimed Vancouver guitarist Noah Walker –

    – Performances in Vancouver, Whitehorse, Dawson City, Thousand Islands, Windsor and Edmonton –

    “A moving musical journey along the Underground Railroad...

    with a Hamilton-esque twist: [the songs] are reinvented

    as hip-hop, funk and soul numbers...A Must-See”

    – TORONTO LIFE

    (Wednesday, June 14, 2017 – Toronto ON) Following the acclaimed world premiere of Freedom Singer during Black History Month 2017, Project: Humanity is proud to bring this “must-see” theatre production to Vancouver, Whitehorse, Dawson City, Gananoque, Windsor and Edmonton.

    Co-created by JUNO nominee Khari Wendell McClelland and Project: Humanity’s Andrew Kushnir, Freedom Singer is a rare musical journey through the history of the Underground Railroad and the songs that carried freedom seekers northward to Canada. Performed by McClelland along with JUNO nominee Toronto soul singer Tanika Charles and acclaimed Vancouver guitarist Noah Walker, the production will reach six more cities September through October 2017.

    In 2015 McClelland retraced the steps of his great-great-great grandmother Kizzy and discovered the songs that likely accompanied her and thousands of others as they escaped U.S. slavery (as documented by journalist Jodie Martinson on CBC's The National and Tapestry). In sharing this music – which are reinvented through contemporary styles like hip hop, funk and soul – Khari is brought face to face with his own "unrecorded" heritage, and the realities and myths of one of our quintessential historic narratives: the Underground Railroad. Freedom Singer premiered in Toronto in February 2017 and then toured to Regina, Calgary, Winnipeg, Halifax, Montreal and Ottawa.

    ★★★

    “A sweet reminder of our history…"

    “There are challenges translating a research project to the stage, but Khari Wendell McClelland finds a sweet spot.”

    – TORONTO STAR

    Freedom Singer is a documentary-style piece of theatre that blends McClelland’s original music with 1850s freedom songs, verbatim interview excerpts, and first-hand stories. It tells of McClelland’s journey to find the music that would have accompanied his great-great-great-grandmother, an escaped slave who walked to Ontario, lost her legs to the cold, had two children with a British-Canadian, then returned to Detroit after emancipation.

    The show is directed by Andrew Kushnir of Project: Humanity, a Toronto theatre company that uses journalistic research and verbatim texts to explore social issues. (e.g., The Middle Place looked at youth shelters, and Small Axe, homophobia.)

    “Khari Wendell McClelland took us to church!”

    – VANCITY BUZZ

    “You can physically feel this music right now as it may have been felt in the 1800s. History becomes animated; history becomes a verb instead of a noun. These were songs of survival for those singing them – for those who escaped, but also for those who endured or succumbed to the tyranny of slavery. They are songs of dignity forged in the face of inconceivable indignity. They stir the collective memory, the collective imagination -- and they need to live on,” says Kushnir.

    “Freedom Singer asks intelligent, open-ended questions and balances them

    with emotional musical moments and McClelland’s indisputable musical talent.”

    — GLOBE AND MAIL

    McClelland adds, “What I’ve come to realize more and more is how important this look back is right now, with the number of people who are displaced through war, environmental degradation, systemic oppression and poverty. I want to ask the audience – what is our role in this time? We often see the Underground Railroad as a defining narrative of Canada, the realization of hope, a safe place from tyranny. I want us to investigate our commitment to liberty and freedom today.”

    About Khari Wendell McClelland

    Khari Wendell McClelland is a diversely talented and ever-evolving musician. Originally from Detroit, Khari has become a darling on the Vancouver music scene with reviewers lauding his performances as a clever mix of soul and gospel. Khari’s songwriting crosses genres and generations, joyfully invoking the spirit of his ancestors who straddled the United States-Canada border in efforts to escape slavery and discrimination. His music draws from this rich history, integrating the rhythms and folklore of early African-Americans with contemporary sounds and stories of struggle.

    His debut solo album "Fleeting Is The Time" is fresh off the press and it is a brilliant body of work. Some songs make you want to cry, others make you want to dance, while many make you want to do both. A JUNO-nominated performer, Khari frequently performs with celebrated gospel trio The Sojourners and in 2016 opened as a solo act for Andra Day and Ms. Lauryn Hill.

  • Canada Culture Days: Dennis Gaumond, Nora Ruddock and Nathan Saliwonchyk w Jennis
    4:30 pm

    In conjunction with Canada Culture Days, Silence invites you to an exhibition of works of art by Dennis Gaumond and video installation by Nora Ruddock and Nathan Saliwonchyk. Please join us for an afternoon and evening of art, music, and stimulating conversation. Wine, beer, coffee and kombucha will be served. The art exhibition, video screening and artists' talks are free to the public. Tickets for the Jennis show are $15 at the door.

    The events scheduled for the afternoon and evening are:

    4:30-5:30 pm: Screening of Tinderbox (2017) , talk and Q&A with Nora Ruddock & Nathan Saliwonchyk
    6:30-7:30 pm: Artist’s talk and Q&A with Dennis Gaumond
    7:30-8:30 pm: Reception: meet the artists
    9-11 pm: Musical performance by Jennis

    The Exhibition runs September 22-October 20. Building hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 1-4pm. Silence is accessible.

    Dennis Gaumond
    Gaumond, a professional musician for forty years, is also an author, a songwriter and a visual artist. He has been painting for about thirty years and in the nineties, studied art at Zavitz College, University of Guelph. In 1998, he participated in a juried art competition sponsored by Wellington County with about one thousand other submissions, and placed in the top twenty. His painting, “Cheap Room in Cuba”, was part of a three-month exhibition at the Wellington County Museum. Paintings in this phase were done using a thick paint applied with painting knives. In the past several years Gaumond has begun a new line of paintings using painted tissue. The style is mostly non-representational abstracts, emphasizing color relationships. This new style is the result of a search for a process that allows the artist to relinquish a certain amount of creative control to chance. For Gaumond, the artistic process is even more important than the product.

    "Tinderbox" (2017), Nora Ruddock & Nathan Saliwonchyk
    Tinderbox generates a random sequence of 30-second videos; simultaneously, a random audio sequence of poems is heard; every 30 seconds, a new set of images and sounds follows the old. By mimicking the random connections created by dating apps, Tinderbox experiments with the ephemeral “sparkage” of image and word. What does the juxtaposition of one video do to a poem, and vice versa? What new “piece” is fired in the viewing consciousness? Our hope is that the meditative connections made will be rich and strange, celebrating the possibility, as Whitman says, for us to “preserve [our] nakedness / from the gibe of image-making love.”

    Jennis
    Their rootsy sound is at times bluesy, at times funky, jazzy or folky, with a hint of exotic ethnic influences. Jennis’ multi-instrumental music celebrates the mysteries and poignancies of life, rooted in an unapologetic faith in peace and love as the highest powers. The duo has three sets of material, mostly original with some jazz, reggae, funk, R&B and blues classics reinterpreted in the Jennis style. Adding to that a sprinkling of early American jazz and African chants and decades of experience as performers, Jennis is set to entertain diverse
    audiences.

  • Light Industry
    8:00 pm

    Chris Cawthray: drums
    Glen Hall: saxophone
    Jim Sexton: double-bass

    Light Industry is an acoustic improvising trio led by drummer Chris Cawthray.

    The trio features two of Chris' favourite musicians: the infamously telepathic and in-demand Toronto double-bassist Jim Sexton and the most definitely Google-worthy Glen Hall on saxophone.

    "I am writing music specifically for these guys to play WITH me. I like to think that when I compose this music, I am writing TO them, and I hope our performances bear the proof that they are getting the messages."

    The compositions themselves are skeletal; short melodies underpinned by the bass. Interpretation and improvisation are essential to realizing these pieces; two musical skills these players deliver in droves.

    The recording was done in one afternoon at Jean Martin's The Farm studio in Toronto. Martin captures the trio in exquisite depth of timbre and breadth of tonal colour.

    BIO
    The music of drummer John Colpitts as Man Forever is explorative, innovative and fearless. A musician and composer equally versed in the disparate musical languages of DIY rock, improvisation, and contemporary classical, Colpitts (aka Kid Millions) has made an album that defies genre classification. Propulsive, elaborate drum arrangements (created with TIGUE Percussion) remain essential to Man Forever - on the songs of Play What They Want, they are augmented by voice and melody with contributions from Laurie Anderson, Yo La Tengo, and Mary Lattimore to name a few. Play What They Want represents the culmination of 25 years of musical engagement by one of New York’s most acclaimed percussionists.

    The collaborative process, essential to Man Forever, requires the relinquishing of one’s ego for a greater purpose. In Play What They Want Colpitts leverages a vast and talented stable of diverse collaborators to create a work that transcends the sum of its parts.

    “You Were Never Here” kicks off the album with a gorgeous vocal performance by all members of Yo La Tengo and, like the transition from the black and white to technicolor, the piece becomes a driving, wild marriage of Max Roach’s “Garvey’s Ghost,” McCoy Tyner, Alice Coltrane and Steve Reich. World-class harpists Brandee Younger and Mary Lattimore join bassist Brandon Lopez, pianist Sam Yulsman and the Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble to create an experimental jazz and classical “dream team.” “Ten Thousand Things” resonates with TIGUE’s tense, virtuosic compound meters, a Moondog-esque vocal by Colpitts and singer Nick Hallett, and another intuitive performance by harpist Mary Lattimore. Finishing the side, “Debt and Greed” is a surprisingly wry pop tune that combines Colpitts’ Jaki Liebezeit-esque drum groove with CSN-style harmonies, guitar by Trans Am’s Phil Manley, and horn playing by Ben Lanz (Beiruit, The National, Sufjan Stevens).

    The second side leads with the evocative album centerpiece “Twin Torches.” Here Colpitts worked with the legendary multi-media artist and musician Laurie Anderson, who provided spoken vocals and violin on the nearly 10-minute tour de force. This composition also features arresting vocal atmospherics by Quince, which precede some of the most complex drumming Colpitts has ever recorded. The album closes with “Catenary Smile,” a prickly ballad featuring Nick Hallett’s cascading background vocals which buoy the lyrics: a contemplation of humanity’s problematic tendency to anthropomorphize inanimate things.

    While Colpitts’ previous albums have expanded on the possibilities and limitations of drums and percussion, this new album redefines the project in myriad ways. Building on a complex rhythmic foundation, Man Forever created an album that is innovative, imaginative and joyous. Play What They Want is a rare record of untamed ambition that hits all its marks.
