What is your intention on this land? How will we shape the future together? Intent City is a live music film remix of sounds, images, ideas, and your input. Email to schedule a Sit Down Soundbite with us before the show to talk about the notion of reconciliation and the emergence of indigenous futurism. Then we will all embark on a transformative performance journey as our conversations become woven into the performance by our onsite musicians, DJs, and VJs, creating a different and evolving experience at each show.

Curator's Note

"Two very exciting and hardworking collectives Eventual Ashes and Red Slam Collective join together to create a dynamic environment in the newly opened DAIS Gallery on Queen West. The artists are proposing an invaluable opportunity for each of us to engage in a bigger conversation, one that connects indigenous and non-indigenous to the land itself and our relationship to each other. This ever-evolving performance experience weaves audience feedback directly into the work itself." - Cathy Gordon
