Endless Dusk, a one-of-a-kind experience, has its world premiere on Wednesday (June 28) and Thursday (June 29) at 8:30pm each evening around GAIA in the Trivitt Auditorium. Created by the Canadian singer-musician-composer Robin Dann, this unique work takes inspiration from Robin’s immersive journey to the Arctic Circle.  Partnering with a group of distinguished Canadian artists, Robin seamlessly blends captivating sounds recorded in the North with her own compositions inspired by the Arctic’s beauty and allure.

Endless Dusk captures the essence of an Arctic evening where dusk stretches on endlessly. Each performance expresses the ambiance of this extraordinary region. With staging, meticulously crafted by top-tier Canadian artists, Endless Dusk promises to transport the audiences into a world of wonder and enchantment.

Robin wrote this about her Arctic adventure: “In October of 2018, I had a once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel to the Arctic Circle. I was immersed in the breathtaking landscapes, witnessed incredible wildlife, and experienced the everlasting beauty of the Arctic.  Inspired by the memoir of Wanny Woldstad, the first female trapper, I composed a collection of rounds that will be performed as a surround-sound installation that includes four exceptional voices during each performance”

Join us for these final performances of Huron Waves’ 2023 season.  Ahead lies a profound sense of calm and wonder from the top of the world, Canada’s final frontier.

Our own countdown has begun before GAIA takes off for its next international setting. If you’re coming to Exeter to enjoy the  town’s 150th anniversary celebrations over the Canada Day weekend, or if you simply haven’t yet seen GAIA, do take advantage of these final days to view our Earth as the astronauts have photographed it from their circling space crafts.

There are also half-hour showings of the Geni nominated film, Curb Your Carbon, from Infield Fly Productions; outside on Baldwin Street, weather permitting, lies the giant Canada from Space map with radar images from Canadian satellites, courtesy the Royal Canadian Geographical Society in Ottawa.  It’s all at Trivitt Auditorium, 264 Main Street, Exeter.
