Emergents IV: Din of Shadows Material Mythology

The Music Gallery presents

Emergents IV: Din of Shadows – Material Mythology

part of the Emergents Series

Curated by Sara Constant

In the final Emergents event of the season, experimental music theatre group Din of Shadows is bringing it all together. Their newest project, Material Mythology, speculates about the hidden meanings and mythologies behind everyday actions, objects, and spaces. Assembling a team of performers, composers, dancers, and visual artists, Din of Shadows uses the idea of a ‘modern mythology’ as a starting point for the creation of new, interdisciplinary works.

Founded in 2017 by composer/performer Quinn Jacobs, Din of Shadows is a Toronto-based company focused on works that explore both auditory and visual modes of expression. Together, they are a collection of artists with backgrounds in music, dance, and theatre, dedicated to the development and production of genre-bending works by Canadian creators.

Here, artists from Din of Shadows will combine experimental theatre, dance, visual art and composition. With new pieces by Julia Mermelstein, Quinn Jacobs, Domenic Jarlkaganova, Angela Blumberg and Ming-Bo Lam, new dance/theatre interpretations of music by Ann Southam, and John Cage, and visual artwork by Alesha Aquino, Jennifer Ramses, and Amy Jefferys, Din of Shadows aims to create a meeting-place for artistic communities—and explore new ideas in collaborative performance.

The Emergents Series is generously supported by Roger D. Moore.
