Prairie Fire Press and the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra invite you to a short performance of a unique work in progress, Boreality, on March 9, 2010 at 7:00 p.m., at Aqua Books (274 Garry Street). Light refreshments will be served. Admission is free.
Join Katherine Bitney, Sid Robinovitch and Ken Gregory as they workshop text, sound and music inspired and collected during the first year of the Boreality project.
Although Mandy Malazdrewich is not able to be there, some of her amazing photos will be shown during the performance.
This fresh, spontaneous performance is a precursor to the orchestral piece slated to appear in the spring of 2011 as part of the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra’s season.
Boreality is a multi-year collaboration between Prairie Fire Press and the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra. The purpose of this project is to celebrate the boreal forest of Manitoba through a multidisciplinary approach to writing, music, soundscape and photography which will result in a musical performance, a special issue of boreal forest writing, and a boreal festival and art/sound installation.

Boreality is made possible by support from the Winnipeg Arts Council’s New Creation Fund, The Manitoba Arts Council, Manitoba Culture, Heritage and Tourism, and The Winnipeg Foundation.
Have a great weekend. How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
