1997 Prognosis

Prognosis uses Symptom Hall’s upstairs and downstairs main spaces as flexible, changeable environments to accommodate a wide variety of work. A total of nine pieces will presented over a three-day period, using video, film, live sound, movement-based work, food and more in conjunction with performance elements. Six of these works will be presented as part of the Teratoid Cabaret, a multimedia extravaganza that will take move throughout the spaces. Rather than establishing a single stage, the cabaret will provoke a non-aggressive interaction between performers and audience as locations shift for each work, with pieces working their way through, among and around the audience. Toronto-based artists Eric Aurandt and Hal Niedzviecki, Rebecca Belmore, Terril-Lee W. Calder-Fujii, Andrew J. Paterson and Songs of the New Erotics will present shorter works upstairs, while the endurance work Pound and Scrub by Madison WI-based artists Joseph Connelly and Jason Lee takes place before, during and after the cabaret in the downstairs space.

In addition to the Teratoid Cabaret, longer works by Jinhan Ko, Louise Liliefeldt and an Ottawa media collective featuring Tim Dallett, Kenneth Emig, John Lauder, Emmanuel Madan, Thomas McIntosh and Phil Rose will round out the Prognosis program.
