Horizon Stage Presents: New North Collective
October 12, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$30 – $35
New North Collective is an ensemble of Northern Canadian performing artists from Yukon and Northwest Territories including spoken word artist/bassist Pat Braden and composer/performer Carmen Braden from NWT, singer/songwriter Diyet from the Kluane First Nation, guitarist/songwriter Graeme Peters and percussionist Robert Van Lieshout from Yukon, and multi-instrumentalist/producer Jan de Vroede from Greenland bringing a circumpolar element.
Formed in 2015, New North Collective explore their ideas of the north – from the land to the people; from the traditional to the contemporary. Their shared music takes an in-depth look at being a northern person and artist with the impact of geography and community on the music they create collaboratively. Their music is diverse and skillful, representative of a multitude of genres. Specifically designed to discard stereotypes and push boundaries, this multi-media experience is simultaneously crowd-pleasing and thought-provoking for a diverse audience.
