"Finally, an exciting new conference for inquiring minds that you can't afford to miss… because you can afford it!"
DREAMERS RENEGADES VISIONARIES: The Glenn Gould Variations is a two-day festival of new work, new interpretations and new collaborations, from Argentina, Britain, Canada, China, Croatia, France, Germany,
Japan and USA.
As many as 50 artists, thinkers and creators will enlighten, amuse and dazzle with their performances, their stories and their ideas, each for approximately 20 minutes.
Filmmakers, dancers, choreographers, voices, music makers, DJs, visual artists and music producers, mix it up with philosophers, futurists, journalists, media mavens, historians, and provocateurs who defy description!
The "immersive experience" of DREAMERS RENEGADES VISIONARIES: The Glenn Gould Variations is accessible and affordable (a first for Toronto!) for everybody, inspiring and provoking creativity in thought, word and deed with no boundaries…just like Gould himself.
This provocative mix of performance and talk is inspired by Canadian icon and multi-media innovator Glenn Gould, and part of the celebrations marking the 80th year of Gould's birth.
GLENN GOULD, a fearless musician, writer, radio and TV broadcaster with endless curiosity and a devilish sense of humour, was also a tireless explorer of technology as it applied to the arts and was one of the world's first true multi-media artists.
