The Transformers – Part of the National Transformations Project
May 7 - May 31
“What would it take to transform our society for the betterment of all?”
That is the question that has been asked to artists all across Canada as part of the Transformations Project. This is a national project in which live performance companies from across Canada have asked some of their favourite artists to approach the above question by creating a short video in any format that inspires them. The idea is twofold: to help get some income to at least some of the many arts workers hard-hit by the pandemic; and to enlist the rich artistic imaginations of artists across the country as a way to assess where we are and where we could be going.
Catalyst Theatre commissioned three Edmonton-based artists to create videos for the project: Chris Dodd, Kristi Hansen and Rebecca Sadowski. Each of them worked with local cinematographer Tamarra Lessard to create three distinct pieces that celebrate the resilience and transformative power of the arts. They called themselves the Transformers as they worked in tandem to create these stunning pieces.
