The Clay & Glass is excited to once again present a performance by the Bicycle Opera Project. The Bicycle Opera Project is the only opera company that tours by bicycle. Designed to bring contemporary Canadian music to smaller communities where there is little opportunity to hear it, their company closes the gap between audiences and singers by performing in intimate spaces. They perform new Canadian works that focus on current issues, in English.

Sweat is an a cappella opera for nine singers by Juliet Palmer and Anna Chatterton about the global garment industry. It was commissioned and developed by Soundstreams with the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council and Opera.ca and was premiered in New York City this past October. This July, Bicycle Opera is undertaking the Canadian premiere.

About the artists:
For over 31 years Edmonton-born artist Rebecca Baird has been exploring themes of First Nations identity and representation in a number of contemporary media, from installation/sculpture, painting, and print-making to constructions with found objects and braided sweetgrass with quillwork. She brings both a refined aesthetic sensibility and extensive scholarly research to her collaborations with her brother Kenny. She has received a number of significant awards and grants, and has exhibited in Canada and abroad. Her works are in the collections of the Canada Council’s Art Bank, the Canadian Museum of History, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the Canadian Embassy in Geneva.
