In partnership with The Dance Centre.
This vocal improvisation workshop aims to awaken a variety of unheard sounds that sleep deep in your throat. Your voice will resonate with that of other participants, as you participate in various vocal exploration exercises, follow an intuitive choral conducting method specifically designed for non-musicians. Anyone curious to explore the full potential of their vocal instrument is welcome; no formal musical training necessary. A community-building, artistic, liberating, playful, unexpected and bizarre workshop!
Gabriel Dharmoo’s musical practice encompasses composition, vocal improvisation and research. His works have been performed in Canada, the U.S.A, Europe, Australia, Singapore and South Africa. He was awarded the Canada Council for the Arts Jules Léger (2017) and Robert Fleming Prize (2011), the MusCan Student Composer Competition (2017), the SOCAN Jan V. Matejcek Award (2016), the Fernand-Lindsay Prix d’Europe composition prize (2011), as well as 6 prizes from the SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Composer. His work as a singer and interdisciplinary artist led to his performative solo Imaginary Anthropologies, awarded at the Amsterdam Fringe Festival (2015) and the SummerWorks Performance Festival (2016). He is currently enrolled in Concordia Unversity’s PhD “Individualized Program” with Sandeep Bhagwati (Music), Noah Drew (Theatre) and David Howes (Anthropology of the Senses).

Symposium and Exhibition | December 18, 2018 – International Migrant’s Day
in partnership with the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre
This project aims to create critical and creative space where professional artists and Filipino migrants create art together. The artistic partners will carry out various phases of creative exchange. This process will give critical agency among the participants allowing their distinct voices to emerge within a space with an atmosphere of free will, joyous participation and critical public engagement. In this initiative, the artists and the migrant participants work together in exploring artistic practices and will integrate critical and empathic discussions on settler colonialism, history of migration, arts and the migrants and indigenous ways of knowing and being. We believe that these critical and empathic processes of artistic integration between the artists and the participants is much needed among the Filipino-Canadian communities in BC.
