Millennium Centre, 389 Main Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 1A6 & Alexis O'Hara perform TESSERACT, a hybrid performance/installation/concert which takes its inspiration from the Planetarium, inviting us us to contemplate the birth and death of what we call the “universe”. The brainchild of Montreal art duo (Stephen Lawson and Aaron Pollard) and close collaborator artist Alexis O'Hara, this performance considers the possibility of other dimensions. 
With the collaboration of local performers, the Esprit de Choeur Choir, vocalist Peter John R. Buchan and invited guests, along with the participation of Video Pool, the artists will fill the Millennium Centre with songs, projections and visions of utopian dimensions.

The evening starts out with Viðarneisti (Victoria Sparks, percussion, and Catherine Wood, clarinet), a premier of a commissioned work by Fjóla Evans. Sparks and Wood will then carry on independently, pairing Evans' work with a set of miniatures by Manitoba composer Christopher Byman. 
The audience will experience Evans's original music for solo cello and electronics. 
Closing the evening is 10,000 Horses. Velvet Nite (Alexis O'Hara, ukulele, voice and electronics) and Lady Nite (Stephen Lawson, synthesizers) are sisters committed to shining sonic light on the triumphs of our female heroines.

Five of the sixteen members of The Daughters of Reykjavík (Reykjavíkurdætur) the all-female rap crew, will be in attendance creating a unique, one-night immersive installation that combines sculpture and video.
