OdaabaanagJumblies Theatre & Soundstreams, Toronto | ON

“Odaabaanag is a collaborative project between Soundstreams and Jumblies, that bridges contemporary music, community-engaged arts and intercultural creative processes. Join us to hear inter-related works for string quartet and audio track by Melody McKiver and a song cycle by Beverley McKiver, performed by The Gather Round Singers community choir and soloist Nicole Joy-Fraser. Both works are informed by interviews with elders from the composers’ home community of Obishikokaang (Lac Seul First Nation).

Odaabaanag is an Ojibwe word that translates closely to “trains”. With a launchpad of Steve Reich’s Different Trains, which explored Reich’s Jewish heritage and voice excerpts of Holocaust survivors, Odaabaanag draws on cultural memories of Melody and Beverley McKiver, and interviews conducted in their Anishinaabe ancestral home. Their compositions feature the words and voices of Garnet Angeconeb, Josephine King and Tom Chisel.
