Program: Currents I September 21, 4:00-9:00pm

Location: Starting at The Bentway, 250 Fort York Boulevard, and following the waterfront to 259 Lakeshore Boulevard East

Co-commissioned and co-presented in partnership with The Bentway, produced by PA System

Artists: Parr Josephee, Cie Taqiasuk, Saaki Nuna, David Pudlat, Janine Manning, Kunu Pudlat, Kevin Allooloo, Salomonie Ashoona, Taqialu Pudlat, Oasis Skateboard Factory Fall 2019 Cohort, Ooloosie Ashevak, and PA System (Alexa Hatanaka and Patrick Thompson)

Presented in conjunction with Embassy of Imagination + PA System’s installation at 259 Lakeshore Boulevard East, Sinaaqpagiaqtuut/The Long-Cut is a procession that began in Kinngait (Cape Dorset, Nunavut) and continues in Toronto. The procession is performed and features works by Kinngait youth from Peter Pitseolak High School made in collaboration with the Oasis Skateboard Factory School in Toronto that are inspired by Kinngait-Toronto connections and look to the ways these distant places are tethered through waterways, art markets, artistic collaborations, and the night sky.

In Kinngait, the procession involved community members celebrating the beginning of the new Lands and Community Leadership program, an EOI and the Cape Dorset Education Authority initiative, made possible by EOI’s collaborative youth-engaged artwork Future Snowmachines in Kinngait. In Toronto the procession performance continues as a reflective walk along the waterfront, nuanced by shared memories held by the performers and the creation of new memories in real time, at points relating to places along the route, e.g. the EOI 2017 mural in Coronation Park, “Avatittinnik Kamatsiarniq”.

Members of the public are invited to witness the performance and are welcome to respectfully follow behind the procession, while reflecting on their own relationship to place.
