Agnete & The Merman

  • SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema 149 West Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V6B Canada (map)

“Agnete & The Merman” has been described as “transcendental cinema.” A modern hallucination of music, the ancient augmentation of reality, our relationships - and our spaces - the theatre, the club, the empty warehouse. 

This 55 minute film is an adaptation of Cristian Vogel’s spatial sound and live theatre production that was commissioned by the Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017 and premiered in Denmark in June 2017. Cristian Vogel is a Copenhagen-based electronic composer who specializes in immersive, spatial sound. The film’s creators, a Canadian duo called “The Automatic Message” (Tanya Goehring and Trevor Jacobson) travelled to Denmark during the production to shoot and have since created this experimental, mind-bending dance film.

The film has been scored in 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound and so the audience in Vancouver will get to experience the film in its true spatial sound form.

Cristian Vogel and The Automatic Message will both be present at the screening and will host a casual Q&A afterwards.

Doors at 7:30pm

Screening at 8pm

Q&A at 9:15pm
