Theatre II - The New Barbarians
11 Sept 2004
Theatre II was a spectacular presentation of video and sound art using
Cathedral Park as a setting to contextualize the theme, "The New
For the 2004 theme, artists shed new light on the term "barbarian"
While the previous year's event looked at Vancouver as a sci-fi landscape,
this year's program takes sci-fi one step further to look at that which
exists in our everyday landscape - that which is forever base and unchanging,
the part of humanity that never evolves or advances. Once a barbarian,
always a barbarian!
Footage was shown that takes various positions, from works that critique
Western culture as a barbaric force to those that embrace "barbarianism"
as the new order. In order to expand the scope of Mercury Theatre for
2004, Intermission sent a call for sound and video submissions Canada-wide
this year. Over 20 artists have sent in works from across our fair land
that were mixed live at this outdoor event by Intermission and featured

"what a great event! you did an amazing job. the screens were beautiful,
horrendous...i love intermission."
"I fully enjoyed the performance. The music was totally haunting. I was
impressed with the subtlety of the images....that 9/11, and the war, etc
weren't being smashed into our eyes."

A remarkable performance, smiles all round! Thanks DJ DandyLion (Wade
Thomas), for his intermission Dub/DanceHall mix. MP3s here:
Julie Gendron performed a Live Video mix, of painterly constructions.
intermission band, will be backing her up, with a their/our brand of live
improvised electronica - a practice of communication through music
on a walk-about which is never the same but aways an intriguing journey.
In this process the 'score' is encoded directly in the music as communication
between the players, as they ask and answer questions reminiscent of "Shall
we go this way?" or "Can you dig this?"

Intermission hosted a Philip K Dick inspired day of surreal performances.
The event was connected via live webcast with the London U.K. Bughouse

a simulcast feedback loop in cyberspace.
