Gavin Bryar’s The Sinking of the Titanic with the Aventa Ensemble @ Vancouver Aquatic Centre

Tuesday December 4th , 2012 9:00 PM
The Vancouver Aquatic Centre
1050 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
Tickets $20/$10

Redshift commemorates the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic with a unique performance of Canadian/UK composer Gavin Bryars’ masterpiece of the same name inside the Vancouver Aquatic Centre. The Aquatic Centre’s cavernous acoustic and myriad reflective surfaces will for this special evening also be filled with premieres by BC composers Jordan Nobles, Jennifer Butler, and Giorgio Magnanensi performed by Victoria’s acclaimed Aventa Ensemble, not to mention video projections by Giorgio Magnanensi and a dazzling light show. The Sinking of the Titanic will be a unique musical re-envisioning of a popular Vancouver landmark, and a show not to me missed.

Oh, and don’t forget to bring your swimsuits – the audience is invited to listen from in the pool and on deck alike.
