Festival

Restrung 2017

Presented by Restrung Productions

Restrung 2017 delivers an all-star line-up of more than 50 international, national and local artists to explore the spaces between genres — classical, electronica, folk, jazz, rock, pop, minimalism and more.

The three-day program includes performances by New York art-rock band Blonde Redhead, noted for their lush and darkly-tinted instrumental and vocal textures, along with multi-award winning Canadian cellist Cris Derksen who harnesses flawless classical technique and mastery of electronic effects to express her indigenous culture.

Third in the series of Restrung festivals, the program offers a joyous explosion of strings-driven music, dance, theatre and art that challenges musical and artistic boundaries: a roller coaster ride through the arcane, the forbidden and the gorgeous.
