Wavelength Music Arts Projects is proud to announce and present our fourth annual collaboration with Toronto’s Images Festival, now in its 22nd year. Part of the acclaimed Live Images series, this year’s Images Festival closing night extravaganza features a double bill with Toronto’s Ammo Factory and the Los Angeles-based collective Cloud Eye Control. Combining pop music, live performance and video projections, both of these groups represent a fresh, new take on multi-media performance. 

 

Opening the show is Ammo Factory’s new work The Voice Over. Starring Alex Lukashevsky, directed by Matt Smith and written by Liz Peterson, the piece tells the story of a struggling musician who starts to lose his grip on reality as his life begins to echo the events of a film that he is hired to overdub.  He walks through the city along his routine paths until he becomes transfixed with a singing stranger.

 

The Voice Over will be followed by two works from Cloud Eye Control (Final Space and Subterranean Heart) and Miwa Matreyek’s solo piece Dreaming of Lucid Living. These interdisciplinary performances each explore themes of technology, time, space and the human body through fantastical tales of interstellar adventure, scientific excavation and futuristic dream-sucking machines. Come for the performances, stay for the interactive aerobics workout dance party!

 

Ammo Factory is an experimental theatre collective based in Toronto. Since 2004, they have been creating work that challenges the boundaries and the cultural placement of theatre. Using both narrative and non-narrative pieces to explore issues of censorship in art, the criminalization of sexuality, and the disenfranchisement of voices that threaten capitalist power structures, Ammo Factory has proven to create truly unique multi-media performances, from a biographical work on 1920s lesbian playwright Mercedes de Acosta to a scientific melodrama inspired by recent research on String Theory. Often presenting performances in galleries, the collective has begun to bridge its own relationship between the media arts and theatre communities in Toronto.

 

Cloud Eye Control is a Los Angeles-based multi-disciplinary performance collective comprised of Miwa Matreyek, Anna Oxygen and Chi-wang Yang. Integrating animation, experimental theatre, pop music, and puppetry, their work fuses screen and stage to create inventive hybrids of animation and performance. Their work has been presented both nationally and internationally. Recent showings include the REDCAT NOW Festival, 2007 Platform International Animation Festival and the TBA Festival at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art.

Images Festival is the longest-running and most influential integrated media arts festival in Canada, dedicated to the moving image in all its forms, showcasing film, video, installation, performance and web-based art works that approach their subject in formally, narratively, and aesthetically unconventional ways.
