Vertical Labyrinth Program
This piece was originally programmed on Crossing Borders: Shifting the Lens which aired December 8. The entire program, including this piece, has been supported by Arts Nova Scotia, Music Nova Scotia, and FACTOR. The commission was supported by the Canada Council for the Arts. Please join us for this 30 minute virtual concert première on Monday, June 27 at 7:30pm. Viewing will be available for 48 hours after on-demand. 
In Shifting the Lens and Vertical Labyrinth, we explore the richness found in the layers of blurred timelines, where our art and our voices connect us across dimensions. Works on this program shift the perspective of our current world while honouring people and poetry from the past.
