A composer and percussionist whose work utilizes an often grueling, endurance-based performance practice, Sarah Hennies examines psychoacoustics, queer identity and expressionistic absurdity, all through a subversive lense. In her internationally lauded performances, outdated binaries dissolve: those between sound and music, tension and release, resistance and submission. Each of her compositions displays a kind of ferocity in dedication; a rigid conceptual underpinning that elevates the felt experience of the work to an almost preposterous degree. We’re honored to be hosting Sarah for both a solo performance and the Canadian premiere of Contralto a new, hour-long video work that uses the sound of trans women’s voices to explore transfeminine identity from the inside, revealing the intimate, peculiar, and powerful relationship between gender and sound.
