Arthur Yeung and Lesley Loksi Chan team up with Hamilton based choreographer Laura Kappel as The Looking Sea Collective to bring back a refined performance of Passages – a collaboration of dance, film and live electro music that was tested out during their residency at Harbourfront’s HATCH last year. Arthur was the composer/musician for Reel Asian’s 2010 commissioned Suite Suite Chinatown. Lesley was Reel Asian’s 2011 Canadian Spotlight Artist; her short films were also included in Suite Suite Chinatown. You can check out Passages at Lyric Theatre on March 29-31 @ 8PM. Watch the trailer here.
The CFC WorldWide Short Film Festival will be screening a Shorts for Shorties – Soundtrack Sing-a-Long program at the NFB tonight! This musical program will include stories of aliens and elephants and includes work by Asian filmmakers Iain Kew Lee (In Bubble Trouble, 2011), Shaun Kim (Ballet of Unhatched Chicks, 2011) and new work by Reel Asian’s Festival Assistant and Richmond Hill Event Captain Eva Ho (We Come in Peace: Destination Toronto, 2011). Congrats to all!
