The Occupy Spring Project

This project started back in 2012 as an exploration of the Occupy Wall Street, Arab Spring and Idle No More movements.

We looked at the body-in-protest, as it reclaims its collective presence through occupying streets, parks, public squares, toppling regimes and changing the political landscapes of many countries.

Now, five years later, the spring has turned into winter, and survival became the only means of resistance as people flee their homes creating one of the most severe refugee crises in history.

What does it mean to resist? What does it mean to survive? Questions raised through the stories of three families: Indigenous, Anglo-European, and Syrian families.

Created by the Collective
Directed by Majdi Bou-Matar

VOC Plays the Movies: Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary

2002 silent version of Bram Stoker’s iconic story. One of the world’s leading exponents of silent films, Winnipeg’s Guy Maddin produced Dracula for CBC television, starring Zhang Wei-Qiang as Count Dracula. Shot as a dance film featuring the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the film features traditional silent techniques, including title cards. Not strictly black and white, special effects add colours to tint certain elements such as green bank notes, and blood. Produced by Vonnie Von Helmolt, with choreography by Mark Godden.

 

The VOC Silent Film Harmonic are a group of accomplished musicians whose approach to playing to silent movies is explained by bassist and group leader Ted Harms: “The blockbuster movies of the 1920’s came with symphonic scores, and big-city theatres had their own orchestras. However, most film music was supplied by pianists or small ensembles that worked from classical themes or cue sheets of generic-themed music serving as the basis for improvisations. This is the tradition that the VOC pursues”.

VOC Plays The Movies is introduced by Andrew Hunt, Associate Professor of History at the University of Waterloo. Specializing in United States history, the Civil Rights Movement, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Conspiracy Theories in American History, and the History of the American West, his new course is titled “Rock ‘n’ Roll & United States History.”

Rubber Soul

A Jazz and R&B Tribute to The Beatles

Jason Raso Funktet featuring Joni NehRita and Rufus

When The Beatles exploded onto the scene in the 60’s, the Motown sound was at its peak. The Beatles covered Motown songs, such as Please Mr. Postman and You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me. But soon Motown and jazz artists would be covering Beatles songs. From Stevie Wonder and The Four Tops, to Herbie Hancock and Jaco Pastorius, many R&B, and jazz artists put their own spin on Beatles classics.

Now one of Canada’s great bass players, Jason Raso, puts his unique stamp on the music of The Fab Four. The Funktet features Brent Rowan saxophone, Thomas Hammerton keyboards, Nicholas Russell guitar, Adam Bowman drums, and Jason Raso – electric bass. Special guests, the soulful voices of Joni NehRita & Rufus.
