SAPPYFEST: INFINITE VARIETY livestream takes place July 30-31.
SappyFest announces SAPPYFEST: INFINITE VARIETY, a 26 HOUR online broadcast of music, art, film, poetry, storytelling, workshopping, cooking, pets, puppets, plant care, yoga, costumes, and much, much more.
Part music and art festival, part online party, part amateur television studio, part community celebration, part love letter, part postcard from home, part sleep deprivation experiment, INFINITE VARIETY will be broadcast LIVE from Struts Gallery in Sackville, NB to the whole world from 8:00pm AST on Friday July 30 straight through until 10:00pm AST on Saturday July 31.
SAPPYFEST: INFINITE VARIETY features live performances from Century Egg, Wolf Castle, Cluttered, Julie Doiron, Amy Siegel, G.L.A.M. Bats, Jon Mckiel, Ariel Sharratt and Mathias Kom, Black Dimes, Caged Animals, Marilyn Lerch & Geordie Miller, Rebecca Blankert, and Wandarian; new works from Sarah Wendt & Pascal Dufaux, Theo Crocker, Marissa Sean Cruz, Brandon Hicks, Bucky Buckler, Laura Watson, Izzy Francolini, and Rachel M Thornton; plus special (remote) guests Nyssa, Tica Holiday, Mother Tongues, and Nigel Chapman.
Streaming continuously on YouTube throughout the 26 hour period, the live broadcast will also contain some pre-recorded content including video art, a few remote performances, and a fantasy film double feature. The broadcast will exist only in the time of its happening and the show will not be able to be accessed after that moment has passed. Just like life!
SAPPYFEST: INFINITE VARIETY is a co-presentation of SappyFest and Struts Gallery.
