About the company:
The Looking Sea Collective shares an understanding that the intertwining of various disciplines creates layered work that will encourage a more reflective and contemplative experience, causing audiences to connect their own experiences with those on the stage. They envision an artistic forum that continually challenges and redefines the conventions of performance. Total respect, trust and equal voice among the collaborators are hallmarks of the Collective’s process.

Angela Molina draws on the memory of her own experiences as well as those contained within the collective consciousness as the principal source of her “found sound” approach to music. She attempts to create tangible moments in time to evoke shapes, textures and colour inside sound. The ability to learn and grow from personal experience is her own unapologetic process to music creation and defines the mood of her work into what she calls an “exercise in time travel.”
Arthur Yeung, originally hailing from Hong Kong, studied Electroacoustics at Concordia University. In addition to his involvement with various indie bands, he has performed across Toronto and Montreal with his electronic musical endeavours (EXERCISERS, Falling Line).
Letters. Discarded teabags. Mundane daily tasks. Family stories made into myth and those that are buried and muffled. Sounds from the past projected to the present. Recuperating lost moments. These are all poignant seeds rooted at the precipice of one’s memory; wholly personal yet entirely universal.
Inspired by stories gathered from family members, Passages explores the magical space between interior and exterior worlds. Featuring choreography, video visions and live soundscapes, Looking Sea Collective presents a fascinating interdisciplinary performance, exploring the family stories that become myths and the stories we try to bury within our collective memories.
