MOVING PARTS is a two-day symposium gathering scholars, artists, investigators, and performers working with puppets, performing objects, live bodies in movement, and the sympathetic and often mysterious relations between the two. A series of panel discussions and conversations will bring multiple disciplinary perspectives to puppets and other inanimate elements that both depend on and make demands on performers’ bodies, as they share fictional life with the performer on stage. MOVING PARTS will offer a series of perspectives on how the articulations of the body and its object-partner can be notated, imagined, and shared across discourses.
The Cabaret follows the symposium and will feature performances by puppeteers, dancers, and unclassifiable artists on the same theme: objects and bodies in performance.
MOVING PARTS is produced by CAFÉ CONCRET and funded by SSHRC and the Concordia University Faculty of Fine Arts, with the support of the Concordia Department of Theatre. The symposium is organized by Mark Sussman, Jesse Orr, and Erin Hill with support from Dinaïg Stall, Clea Minaker, and Allison Peacock.

Amanda Dawn Christie: Spectres of Shortwave November 15 to January 28, Dazibao
Here, we are looking at notions of transmission, from the most elementary sense of “transmitting a message,” right up to its various technological manifestations. Amanda Dawn Christie, Omar Elhamy & Casper Wolski, and Thomas Kneubühler treat the importance of means of communication — of transmitting — on both the geopolitical and human levels. By taking as our anchor point the word transmit, whose etymology is closer to pathway than it is to send, we can also consider terms such as transfer, transcribe, transit, transpose and ultimately transform, and thereby examine how movements in time and space act on those who experience them.
This documentary features the marshland in Sackville (New Brunswick) where, until 2014, the Radio Canada International shortwave site was located. From World War II and through the Cold War, this site broadcasted shortwave radio, an accessible and affordable means of communication that also had a personal and at times, strange impact on those living in its midst.
If you want to experience this work as a radio piece you can borrow a radio in our office and take a walk in the Champs des Possibles where you can tune in.
Leonard and Bina Ellen Gallery
Performance | Harmoney Holiday
November 27, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
In conjunction with 𝐵𝑙𝑢𝑒𝑠 𝐾𝑙𝑎𝑖𝑟
Considering themes of absence, minor histories, and the black radical tradition as introduced in Blues Klair and the research methods they provoke, Los Angeles-based poet and choreographer Harmony Holiday has been invited to present a new performance working with audio and video archives that extend from, surround and inform her practice.
Harmony Holiday is a writer, dancer, archivist, and the author of four collections of poetry Negro League Baseball, Go Find Your Father/A Famous Blues, Hollywood Forever, and A Jazz Funeral for Uncle Tom, forthcoming. She also founded and runs Afrosonics, an archive of jazz and everyday diaspora poetics and Mythscience a publishing imprint that reissues and reprints work from the archive. She worked on the SOS, the selected poems of Amiri Baraka, transcribing all of his poetry recorded with jazz that has yet to be released in print and exists primarily on out-of-print records. Harmony studied rhetoric and at UC Berkeley and taught for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. She received her MFA from Columbia University and has received the Motherwell Prize from FenceBooks, a Ruth Lilly Fellowship and a NYFA fellowship. She is currently working on a book of poems called M a à f a and an accompanying collection of essays and memoir entitled, Reparations: Thieves Who Stole my Blue Days, as well as a biography of jazz singer Abbey Lincoln.
