Lumen is a festival that showcases light based new media, media art, and projection based installations. This event invites citizens to explore the city through a new lens - one that illuminates Waterloo through art and technology.
Kazoo! have teamed up with Lumen to bring a genre-defying lineup of artists to Waterloo. Kazoo! Festival is a not-for-profit DIY arts organization who host a year-round music series and annual festival each April in Guelph. Get ready for a lineup including electro-pop, avant-jazz, electro-experimentalism, and post-punk. Unfurl your freak flag and let’s get weird in Waterloo!
KAZOO! PRESENTS: WHOOP-SZO
WHOOP-Szo is a force of nature, sprung from a mixed-blooded experience of Canadian history with deep Anishinabek roots. Thunderous and ground-breaking, harmonious and generative—a WHOOP-Szo show envelops audiences in an emotional weather-storm that dances conscientiously between anger and discipline, frustration and hope. They tell us about colonial injustice loudly and punishingly, with haunting chord changes and monolithic distortion. They are passionate storytellers that knock loudly on the door, and reward you tenfold for inviting them in.
Kazoo! Fest installations and performers sponsored by: Sherwood
Location: Waterloo Public Square - Sherwood Stage
