Curatorial collective Sawdust Collector invites musicians, dancers, poets and artists to perform together, encouraging unexpected collaborations and interaction between different creative communities in Vancouver. For their New Works series, three artists from different disciplines are invited to present works in progress, providing an opportunity to share and experiment with new ideas in public. For this event, Sawdust Collector and the Fall 2019 New Works participants will make Western Front their off-site home. The evening features artist Lucien Durey (with Chance Lovett & Amanda Sum), musician Corbin Murdoch (and friends), dance artist Ziyian Kwan (in collaboration with James Meger), and singer-songwriter Veda Hille and playwright Amiel Gladstone (Onegin) featuring Marin Patenaude, Molly MacKinnon & Tegan Wahlgren.

Amiel Gladstone and Veda Hille create musical shows together for folks like Vancouver Opera, Theatre Replacement, PuSh, Arts Club, and Musical Stage Company, but mainly just for you.

Ziyian Kwan (Dumb Instrument Dance) is a Vancouver based dance artist whose work and play include creation, performance and other-than-usual dance actions. Ziyian has performed close to 100 original works by an eclectic range of choreographers on international stages, and as Artistic Director of Dumb Instrument Dance, creates work that promotes collaboration with colleagues in dance, literature, music and visual art.
