Cécile Belmont (Berlin, Germany) has been working with various people and groups in Calgary conducting performances. A "Letter Performance" involves a group of people meeting in a public place to perform a predetermined act of messaging or communication. The Performances provoke a reaction and bring people together to create a ‘buzz’. Final performance is Wednesday, September 22, 2010 in Barclay Mall at 6:30pm.
The first image above is from the first performance on September 16th, the participants included a group from the Alberta College of Art + Design, City staff from the Water Centre, and construction workers.
The second image is from the second performance on September 18th in Prince's Island Park. The participants for this performance consist of TRUCK members and friends.
These performances explore how we experience and react in public space.
Reception: Monday, September 27, 2010 in Olympic Plaza from noon to 5pm.
