"On the Trail of White Elephants..." or; how to honour the future as imagined in North America in the 1960s/70s. SIXTRUM gives free rein to four multi-talented Montreal innovators (Jean-Michel Dumas, Sylvain Pohu, Dominique Thibault, and Étienne Deslières) to create a brand new hybrid show for percussion and technology. Together they will revisit the vision of the 1960s/70s and the iconic objects from this era (television sets, turn tables, etc.), to reconsider and reintegrate them into an hour of ground-breaking audio-visual performance.
In one phrase?
A glimpse of the year 2000 as imagined in the 1960s, from the perspective of the 2010s.
