AWAKE is an exploration of daydreams and nightmares: the beauty your eyes consume in the day, and the struggle in closing them at night. 

Beginning with the documentary short, AWAKE, by Lucy Cameron, the night blends into a live electronic composition by Emissive dedicated to insomnia. 

Our second performance of the night features artist Joseph Shabason and his composed band of highly acclaimed musicians (Thom Gill, Bram Gielen, Hugh Marsh, Phil Melanson and Nicole Rampersaud) improvising their daydreams
. Visuals for the night will be provided by swampy queen, Diana Vandermeulen.

musical styles: improvised, jazz-informed, ambient/ tonal, indie


Proof of full vaccination, or negative results of a PCR Covid test administered no later than 48 hours prior to the event, is required at the door. Except in our bar area, masks are required to be worn at all times unless explicitly mentioned otherwise.
