Le Desert Mauve

Thursday, March 23rd

On March 23rd and 24th New Works Calgary presents, ‘Le Désert Mauve,’ an experimental queer opera (en Français!) by Montréal composer, writer, and visual artist Maisie-Nour Symon Henry (they/them). This interdisciplinary performance work is based on the iconic Québécois dreamscape novel ‘Mauve Desert,’ by Governor General award-winning Francophone poet Nicole Brossard. Through original paintings, sound, choreography, and music, Henry has created a performance ‘translation’ of the original text, resulting in a rich re-imagination of the iridescent harmonic textures of Brossard’s literary sonic environment. The opera will run for two nights only at CSpace King Edward.

March 23rd – 7:30PM (1hour, no intermission)

March 24th – 7:30PM (1 hour, no intermission), followed by an artist Q & A
