presented by Sound of Dragon Society
Annex Theatre (823 Seymour St.)
Vancouver, BC

Katajjaq (Inuit throat singing) and Khoomei (Mongolian throat singing) meet in the collaboration between Orchid Ensemble (Vancouver) and Oktoecho (Montreal). Katajjaq and khoomei are ancestral throat singing techniques that reproduce sounds heard in nature –  water flowing, the wind blowing, echoes in mountains, the calls of birds… Coincidentally, these are also major themes in traditional Chinese music. In addition, the two ensembles offer unique cross-cultural instrumentations. This concert is a hybrid that crosses between Inuit, Mongolian, Chinese, Japanese, European, and Arabic music and it will be the first time katajjaq and khoomei are presented together on stage in BC.

Fallen City is an interdisciplinary project that fuses the arts and science to raise awareness of earthquake risks and to honour the lives lost to earthquakes around the world. Co-presented by Proliferasian, C- Works, and Sound of Dragon Society, Fallen City offers a unique interactive theatrical experience. Fallen City is the brainchild of 3 siblings – Lan Tung (producer/musician/composer), Dr. Dorian Tung (researcher/earthquake engineer), and Li Tung (visual artist/performer). Born in Taiwan, a country of frequent earthquakes, they now live in Vancouver, where there is increasing concern of a major earthquake (Read more about earthquake risks in BC). They are joined by collaborators from diverse fields: media artist company Chimerik 似不像, led by Shang-Han Chien and Sammy Chien, another set of siblings from Taiwan; software designer Arne Eigenfeldt; and sound design artist Jeremy O’Neill.
