SPECIAL EVENT

Nuit Blanche 2019
Arrivals and Encounters: Sama

Date: Sat, Oct 05, 2019 07:00PM - Sun, Oct 06, 2019 07:00AM
Price: FREE

Experience music and art from around the world in intimate settings — including Mongolian yurts and a First Nations’ teepee. Sama, Arabic for listening, is the night’s inspiration, and you will be invited to listen to the rhythms and stories of artists whose roots extend around the globe.

 

Each setting will offer a different experience, including a space dedicated to the music of a sleepless city. Another will feature distinct musical languages from cross-cultural experiments. And yet another site will take you deep into urban life with a virtual reality installation. 

 

Sacred spiritual music and dance, including whirling dervishes, in quiet locations will evoke the city’s contemplative side.

 

Finally, our outdoor areas will play host to an illuminated sound installation, offering you the chance to experience art while feeling the pulse of the arrivals and encounters that shape this city.
