Transmissions : Autumn 2019

Transmissions

The month of September 2019 saw the world première of Transmissions, an immersive multimedia installation anchored in Indigenous languages and world view at the Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver. From our initial involvement in commissioning two of the three parts of this installation with a grant from the Initiatives program, Canada Council for the Arts, Moving Images Distribution has watched in awe as Anishinaabe artist Lisa Jackson's vision grew and expanded, while meeting challenges along the way.

The wait was well worth it. Hard work by Jackson and a team of talented videographers, musicians, sound artists and visual artists under the umbrella of Vancouver's Electric Company Theatre (Clayton Baraniuk) brought it all to fruition. The installation, set in a 6,000 square foot space in downtown Vancouver saw over 2,000 visitors during its run from September 5th to 28th and brought great reviews.

It will have its Ontario première September 23 to October 25, 2020. Watch for it!
