Mile Zero Dance Presents: Ghost Days
Edmonton, AB — Mile Zero Dance (MZD) is excited to bring Calgary-based artist Terrance Houle to perform Ghost Days as part of The Sesquicentennial Parties series on Saturday, September 30. Houle will be joined by collaborators Cobra Jo Collins and Halie Finney.
Ghost Days is an experimental art adventure combining video, performance, photos, and music to conjure spirits and ghosts as the evening’s audience and collaborators. Houle will attempt to evoke the spirits and ghosts of colonial and non-colonial history that exist in the light of night and in the darkness of the day.
Saturday, September 30 at 7:30PM (door) / 8PM (show)
Spazio Performativo, 10816 95 St, Edmonton, AB
Cost: Tickets are free, but donations are graciously accepted. All proceeds will be donated to Aboriginal services within McCauley.
This event is part of The Sesquicentennial Parties, Mile Zero Dance’s contribution to Canada’s celebrations surrounding its 150th. MZD recognizes that the land that we call Canada, and its first peoples, have been around long before Confederation. Hosting four parties throughout the year, the C150+ Parties celebrate the different sides of Canadianism.
