Tidal - the first cut
This is a special one day showing of a work in progress. Catch the first wave of Wobblys new experimental film Tidal. This film is an exploration of the relationship between the rhythm of mechanized breath and the rhythm of the oceans. It is a fantastical film, where breathing masks transform into diving masks, ventilator tubing morphs into costumes, and an ancient diver who calls the ocean home, draws us into his world. We fall, we dream, we dive. We transform from human to jellyfish and everything in between. This film is a continuation of the exploration of Wobblys dark, dream-like and sometimes absurd aesthetic. Starring Yulia Arakelyan and Erik Ferguson as the dreamers, Nathan H.G. as the Diver, and a special appearance by Grant Miller.
We are thrilled to once again be collaborating with cinematographer Ian Lucero, costume designer Jenny Ampersand and musicians Sweetmeat. Additional animation was created by Kurtis Hough. Make-up by Sumi Wu and Jenny Ampersand.
This film is generously supported by a Project Grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant and by the numerous people who have donated both time and resources to make this project happen.
We will also be screening Waking the Green Sound: a dance film for the trees and a short film by Cheryl Green "In My Home".
Q&A to follow after the 2pm showing.
Both screenings will be Audio Described and ASL Interpreted.
