What is a record? What is memory? How do we try to capture permanence in our impermanent lives? You are invited to record/record: a VHS funeral. Stay as long as you like. Listen, watch, leave, come back as you please. Over the course of this live-streamed digital funeral, 33 VHS tapes will be dismantled, erased, and laid to rest, as we explore what it means to remember and be remembered. Feel free to bring something you loved once, and leave a eulogy of your own.
This performance will be live-streamed right here on the Found Festival website on Thursday, July 2 from 6pm – 9pm. Please tune in!
It’s darn important to us that Found Festival remains accessible for as many Foundsters in our community as possible. That includes making all tickets Offer What you Will. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. But if you’re able, we ask you please make an offer. As a tiny but mighty arts org getting it done on passion and grit, Common Ground Arts Society relies on donations to help keep our scrappy operation afloat. Every offer you make goes directly toward supporting artists in our community.
We suggest $10/event if you can afford it. Any offer over $10 is a direct donation to Common Ground Arts Society. All donations over $20 will be provided with a charitable tax receipt.
PSST! Hey Foundsters – COVID-19 is real and we want you to stay safe and healthy. All of our programming is designed to be experienced solo or with your designated cohort/house group/pod. Please don’t gather in large groups. Please mask up. Please keep a safe distance from others. And please review Alberta Health Services’ recommendations here and here.
