Hi Everyone! Thanks for your enthusiasm about Talking Treaties and Under the Concrete!

We have reached capacity with our reservations for today's show. This means that Under the Concrete is currently full up, and some portions of Talking Treaties are at capacity. You are more than welcome to come to Fort York and join us for the outdoor portions of Talking Treaties (which is most of the show, as long as the good weather holds), and, if there are cancellations, you may be admitted to the two indoor scenes and final Under the Concrete concert.

Note on Talking Treaties/Under the Concrete rain plan:

We're looking forward to seeing you at Talking Treaties and Under the Concrete. The show moves between indoor and outdoor venues, and with the weather having been so unpredictable lately, we wanted to share our rain plan with you.

There are two key things to know. First, no matter the weather, the show will still happen. If it's pouring at our designated start time or begins to pour during the show, we will move the performance to an adapted indoor format. The second key thing to know is to dress for the weather! No matter what weather we end up with, the audience will be outside for at least some portion of the show. Please be prepared to be outdoors, even briefly, in rain, sun, heat or cold. #TalkingTreaties

Talking Treaties Spectacle & Under the Concrete

Tomorrow Jumblies is joining up with the Toronto Creative Music Lab, at the Canadian Music Centre, for a day of musical and interdisciplinary art-making with 40 musicians and a dozen Jumblies artists from around the city, country and world.

From 6:30 to 7:30pm, we will be sharing what we have rapidly concocted in an immersive animation of the CMC's four-story building. We'd welcome a small audience.

It's at 20 St. Joseph St. (near Bay Subway). You have to enter through the basement, as there's construction on their front stairs, but the building is still accessible. Contact info@jumbliestheatre.org if you'd like to attend or for more info.

Wrapping up Outside In Thank you to all the people who came out to contribute to our evolving installation for Outside In. We finished up the gallery show with a closing party and lantern parade on the grounds of Cedar Ridge Creative Centre. Over the course of 10 days: 320+ people visited the show and joined in activities 36 artists, staff and volunteers helped make it happen 15 partner organizations and funders joined in and contributed 40 people of many different ages got up on stilts! Together we partied, shared stories, made paper, built lanterns, performed a new musical (#TouchingGroundFestival), held campfires, walked on stilts, danced outside, made music, wrote poetry, did art interventions of all kinds in the garden and captured them on a map of the site, went on a First Story Toronto walking tour, paraded with lanterns, ate, talked, sang and more. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who was part of this experience. It has launched us into preparations for a new community play outdoors at Cedar Ridge with energy and enthusiasm.

#TBT taking a look back at the beautiful illustration created by Parker Dirks for the #TouchingGroundFestival. They had this to say about the layers within this image:

"Bottom layer; The area the Ground Floor is located in was once part of Lake Ontario. Represented in this image by the embroidered fish pillows that were made at the Ground Floor and Anishenaabe syllabics meaning fish
Middle layer; This layer represents the original boundaries of the Toronto Purchase of 1787 and the larger area that the British took in 1805. this layer also includes the many lost rivers that have been buried by development.
Top layer; This layer represents the land that the Ground Floor sits on today - condos, trains, the lake. Overarching all of it is a sky dome, an Iroquois symbol representing the cosmos."

And now for our Q and A with Jason Doell, who will have a world premiere this Saturday at FOUR LANDS Q: What can people expect to hear when Voices Dangle Like Bells is premiered at Evergreen Brick Works? A: I don’t want to give away too much…but hopefully, there will be a few surprises! Q: Are you excited to work with Jumblies Theatre? A: This has been a truly special project, and I am honoured to have worked with all the incredibly talented and generous artists and community members that are involved with Jumblies and its many programs and offshoots. At every step of this project, we have hit the ground running, and engaged with ideas and problems with enthusiasm, openness, and a collaborative spirit. I feel very lucky to have had this experience. Q: What are the last three works/pieces/songs you listened to? A: I listen to a lot of music over the course of a day…so, I’m not sure what the last three would be. However, when I really like a work, I tend to make it part of my daily life for a considerable stretch of time –really get to know a work by living with it. Right now there are a number of pieces that are in my ears regularly… Folkestone by Linda Catlin Smith, Tower of Meaning by Arthur Russel, FRKWYS Vol.6 by Ikue Mori and Julianna Barwick, whast/ warb by Rebecca Bruton….so many more… (Note: check out Rebecca Bruton's 'whast/ warb ' from our last performance: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrZc5U6Ar_c)

Jumblies Theatre added 73 new photos to the album: Four Lands Performance — at Evergreen Brick Works.

Jumblies is partnering with Continuum Contemporary Music to present two new works responding to the Four Lands project: one composed by Jason Doell (voices dangle like bells) and the other by Juliet Palmer (Quarry). The program will also include Spill, performed by Ryan Scott, and a structured improvisation by Jumblies’ artists and participants.

Four Lands, #4Lands, is a Jumblies’ project that has been touring the country and is coming to Toronto as a residency at Evergreen Brick Works. It explores and expresses people’s relationships to a place: what they like, want to change, remember, have learned, hold in memory from different places and times, wish for and imagine. Artists and community members create and bring to life their Goodlands, Badlands, Lostlands and Dreamlands, through images, words, miniature models, music, conversation and performance.

Wonderful Q&A with Juliet Palmer, one of our FOUR LANDS composers!

" I especially relish this opportunity to collaborate with the Jumblies Choir — it’s a real treat when people converge from all walks of life to sing and make music with such generosity and open-mindedness."
... See MoreSee Less

We recently had a chance to pose some Q's to composer Juliet Palmer - and here are her A's! 1. What can people expect to hear when Quarry is premiered at Evergreen Brick Works? Quarry gives voice to dreams, memories and imaginings from community members across Canada gathered during Jumblies Four Lands project. The Four Lands project took place in settings from coast to coast: from downtown Toronto, to Sioux Lookout, Sipekne’katik, and dozens of places in between. In this song cycle I have distilled hundreds of phrases into a poetic form for soprano, community choir, winds and percussion. I am delighted that it is taking place at the Brick Works, a site of reimagination and rebirth: from industrial neglect to a new wilderness. 2. Why are you excited to work with Jumblies Theatre? I enjoy making work which invites everyone who wants to participate into the creative and performance process. This rarely happens in the contemporary music scene, and yet making music communally is common to most cultures around the world. I especially relish this opportunity to collaborate with the Jumblies Choir — it’s a real treat when people converge from all walks of life to sing and make music with such generosity and open-mindedness. 3. What kind of concepts/thoughts do you want people to come away with after hearing your piece? Focussing less on virtuosic display and more on relationship hopefully underscores the idea of music as a vital participatory human activity that everyone should have access to. Stepping back from a rarefied aesthetic into something visceral, fun and unexpected, a bit rough around the edges, but shot through with unexpected moments of beauty. Like wild plants springing up in an empty lot, flowers amongst chunks of concrete. 4. What are the last three works/pieces/songs you listened to? There’s a ridiculous amount of new and creative music going on in Toronto this week. Last night I heard a handful of new pieces played by Thin Edge New Music Collective and tonight I’ll take in more pieces than I could count on the for the Bang on a Can All-Stars’ program including a new work by John Oswald. Last week I caught a new Ukrainian opera sung by the excellent Kalendar Folk Ensemble well as Vdea Hille and Amiel Gladstone’s version of Onegin. Between now and the Four Lands show, I’m not sure what will perk up my ears, but I like to be surprised and I love to hear music live!
