Maybe We Land: Calgary’s Meghann Michalsky and Torontonian Edmonton-expat Katherina Semchuk present this personal duo piece at Mile Zero. Through partner work and spatial parameters, this duet investigates the fluctuating levels of dependence in a relationship and the cyclical nature of care; how one may resist or surrender to support, and how two individuals become one. A performance by Max Hanic opens the night up.
Details: 7:30 p.m. Sat. at Mile Zero Dance (9931 78 Ave.), $27.96 at milezerodance.com
Sonic Suns: One of Edmonton’s most curious and innovative artists is Gary James Joynes, aka Clinker, back with a solo show at Peter Robertson Gallery. Crepuscular rays — or “god rays” — are naturally occurring sunbeams that originate when incoming light is partially obstructed by clouds or a canopy of trees in the forest. As Joynes witnessed these he was emotionally moved and thought, “What if these rays could be an actual visualization of sound wave energy and movement through light?” In that moment of observation and reflection this encounter marked the genesis for the creation of his show Sonic Suns, frozen images of liquid altered by light and sound coming together into beautiful meditative art objects. His talk is 7 p.m. Oct. 26.
Details: through Nov. 18 at Peter Robertson Gallery (12323 104 Ave.), no charge
Michael Jerome Brown: After three years of sporadic performing, this Montreal singer-songwriter hits the road again with a new album Gettin’ Together, gliding a slide across his resonator guitar, creating an intense mood with his tremolo 12-string and hammering the claw on his gourd banjo. Brown’s folk performances explore and bridge connections between gospel, blues, country, soul and Cajun, making him a well-loved and steady favourite of the Northern Lights Folk Club rotation.
