The most surprising performance artists working today are at Nuit Blanche Calgary on September 15th. The renowned Quebec artist trio, BGL premiere a very humorous free ride carrousel propelled by parkour athletes; Caitlind Brown presents a hypnotic CLOUD comprised of 5000 light bulbs; Emily Promise Allison will touch you emotionally and physically with her 8-hour long performance of blind dance, hope and redemption; Theo Sims gives you a live Irish pub ‘sculpture’, The Candahar, notoriously animated by Belfast’s most handsome bartenders, Chris and Conor Roddy; and… don’t miss the Calgary artist collective Sophie Farewell as they direct their amazing town criers to take your personal news viral!! Nuit Blanche Calgary presents performance art as a guaranteed catalyst for late night conversation, debate and dialogue in downtown Calgary and adds a Village beer tent, the most excellent fine food trucks in Calgary and more.
