Marquee Event - Illuminate the Night Location #5
Please note: in accordance with new public health orders, Nuit Blanche Winnipeg events are currently being adjusted and rescheduled as stand-alone events happening at different times over the course of Culture Days, which runs now until October 25th. As such, the information on this page may not be up to date. Please check back soon for updated event details, or contact the organizer directly for more information. MARQUEE EVENT is a walk-in cinema experience offered freely to Winnipeggers during Nuit Blanche 2020. Two short films created during the spring-summer pandemic months will be screened on the Marquee sign of the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre. The first film is HOM(M)E, a first experimental narrative film by Eric Marroquin Lucha, Mike Peters and Eric Plamondon. The second film is moi, seul.e / my-self by Miguel Fortier, Emilie SolsticeTate, and Eric Plamondon. Both explore themes pertinent to covid-heightened human experiences. Presenting both short films back-to-back results in a cinematographic experience of 10 minutes. The walk-in cinema will operate from 7:45pm to 11pm, with a first showing at 8pm, and then at every quarter of an hour after that, with a last showing of 10:45pm. The walk in cinema will be well identified on Market avenue. The project will utilize outdoor space, with capacity limits and physical distancing measures in place. (Hand sanitizer will be available on site.)
This event is free.
Illuminate the Night - Eric Plamondon & Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre
Each year, an Open Call is held for artists to propose pieces that will enhance the audience experience of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg through the Illuminate the Night program. Projects are selected by a jury of artists and art professionals and are featured in Winnipeg’s downtown core. This is a call inviting artists working in all artistic mediums to submit projects- performance artists, installation artists, textile artists, graphic designers, media artists, architects and general creative thinkers – with a performance, exhibition or installation that will enthrall, excite and possibly introduce Winnipeggers to something they have never seen or experienced before. Eric Plamondon is a fully submerged contributor to the art scene of Manitoba. He is a valued arts administrator, having headed up an artist run centre and now at the helm of a bold and transformative project that is Artspace. He is equally respected as an active artist; regularly seen on stage or in front of a camera lens, mounting art installations of his creation or of other artists, writing or directing. Eric is driven to participate in new art experiences and see how cross contamination can elevate and define Manitoba's artistic offerings. He often taps into his bilingualism (French and English) and the prism of homosexuality to deliver narratives from under-represented and under-valued minorities; once placed in a public space these art offerings resonate with its audience because of its universal themes. Eric shares and embraces his Métis heritage.
