Theme: An Evening of Unprecedented Failures

Artists and professionals have been selected from a variety of disciplines and challenged to create a work that is not within their usual medium. It may be surprising, sublime, or terrible.

The artists were selected to represent a spectrum of disciplines within art. Though, none of it matters given that they will be doing precisely not that.

Featuring:

Amanda Buchner is an improvisor and is entering her third year of an Honours Neuroscience degree. Once, she had to do some realistic drawings for a science competition, and this task brought her to tears. So naturally, she will be painting for the Dirt Buffet.

Sharon Uppal has been a player with Rapid Fire since 2012, and has written and performed sketch comedy with Blackout. She was an improv student with Rapid Fire and with New York’s Magnet Theatre. Her piece will explore the formulation of thought and emotion.

Simon Glassman is a caricaturist whose previous clients include Bioware, Microsoft, The City of Edmonton, Google and Shaw He will be performing a movement piece.

Shima aka Dwennimmen is an amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (Edmonton)-born spoken word artist who embodies the ancient meaning of her chosen pen name. Dwennimmen is the name of an ancient Adinkra symbol, which means strength, humility, learning and wisdom. She is also a budding beat maker who experiments with the Ableton Push 2 to create pleasing, jarring and intriguing sounds.

Fish Griwkowsky is a filmmaker, photographer, and journalist. He will be performing sketch comedy.

Joey Lucius is an actor and educator who spent 3 seasons working as a principle cast member on YTV’s Gemini nominated series ‘That’s So Weird’(2009-2012). Other television credits include ‘Working the Engels’(2014) and ‘Orphan Black’(2014). He will be performing a medley of rap, virtuosic guitar, and tender lullabies.

Tim Mikula is a visual artist, performer, and disgraced journalist. His work has appeared in the Edmonton Journal, Newoundland and Labrador Independent, festivals in Vancouver, Bellingham and Atlanta, Latitude 53, theatres, bars, the woods, and a giant wooden robot head next to a gazebo.
