Keep Hope Alive Festival: Unexpected Convergences/New Connections Live @ Silence May 5-8, 2022 MORE INFO & TICKETS
Beginning April 9th, Silence will be locked in a Feedback Loop, a two-month installation and soundscape created in partnership with the University of Guelph’s 2021-2022 Critical Studies In Improvisation class. Feedback Loop begins on Market Day, April 9 at Silence, 46 Essex Street. Doors open at 11:00. Artists from the Critical Studies in Improvisation program present a live collaborative performance at 12:00. We’re living in a circular apocalypse—locked down by the pandemic, let down by political systems and worn down by an army of influencers forecasting the latest end of the world as we know it. Feedback Loop is our take on a society that has changed beyond all recognition—and not in a nice way. Join us as we spin music and art in contemplation of lives lived in continual, universal frustration. We have 200 questions about the future. We don’t have the answers. This is no student revolution. We’re going to improvise. And we want you in the Loop.
April 8, 2022 – 7pm show.- $10 tickets at the door
March 31, 2022 – Doors 7:30pm – Show 8:00pm – Tickets $15
