'Wild Constructs' at Beakerhead 2019

DETAILS:

Get your tickets for the debut showing of 'Wild Constructs' at Calgary' Beakerhead Festival! 

'Wild Constructs' is a series of six videos (5-7 minutes each) created, and filmed in the Weaselhead. The series features the work of nine talented local artists who share their experience of the park and creative responses to the biological and social impacts of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road. The videos include spoken word poetry, dance, storytelling, drum, and song. Each video is set to original song composition that weaves in wild sounds, from field recordings taken in the park over the past 3 years.

'Wild Constructs' is an honest and beautifully diverse look into a place going through significant and rapid changes brought on by construction. It showcases the beauty and importance of urban wild, offers an accessible understanding of ecological changes, and gives immersive windows into the many perspectives of place. Wild Constructs is a compelling conversation between science, art, wilderness, and community.

Filmed on Treaty 7 Land
