You made 2017. Thanks to you Public Recordings moved, thought and shared more last year than ever before: six major projects to nine cities on three continents. That includes Other Jesus, which played to 600 people and received amazing reviews as well as six nominations at the 2017 Dora Mavor Moore Awards in Toronto. Other Jesus was only possible because of crucial financial support from a small group of visionary donors.
Join us again to keep doors and minds open.
This year we’re back to the the studio developing new, groundbreaking work. Associate Artist Liz Peterson is in Barcelona with Catalonian choreographer Marina Colomina. Liz and Marina’s urgent new performance, Borders (sin título), examines what happens to people living between and across divergent stories of nationality, gender and language. They’re in the right place at the right time to see what art can do, and what kinds of knowledge it can produce. We think this work is risky and important – but it needs your support.
Borders (sin título) reconfigures collaborators and creates new connections. Ame Henderson and Katie Ewald provide dramaturgy and production planning, while musician Matt Smith joins Public Recordings for the first time. We’re thrilled to co-produce this new work with Events in Real Time and grateful for support from L’Estruch Fàbrica de Creació and La Poderosa.
Help us ensure that work on Borders (sin título) continues to its premiere in Toronto in the fall of 2018 by making a donation today.
Your help will allow us to commit to the work’s development in the summer of 2018 leading to the premiere next fall. It means we can confirm studio time, pay fair artist wages, and confirm Marina’s ability to join the creation process in Canada. Make a donation by December 31 to receive a 2017 tax receipt and an outpouring of unconditional love.
