LAURIE BROWN AND PONDERCAST PRESENT MOON MERGE AT THE BENTWAY WITH RICH AUCOIN, BERNICE, CHOIR! CHOIR! CHOIR! AND JOSHUA VAN TASSEL ON SEPTEMBER 14
The urge to disappear...to shut down the phone and walk away from being ‘social.’ Are you feeling? The pressure to stay visible - to put yourself out there - is real. But why do we do it? I doubt it’s because we love that scrutiny that comes with keeping our lives so public.
On Pondercast Episode 46 : How To Disappear, Laurie Brown finds inspiration in the book How To Disappear by Akiko Busch.
Let’s talk about your private life...and why having more of one is good for your soul.
On September 14, Pondercast host Laurie Brown and JUNO Award Nominated electronic composer and musician Joshua Van Tassel will explore how city-dwellers merge with their natural surroundings during a live podcast recording that takes visitors on a virtual journey to the moon and back with Moon Merge. The evening will feature performances by Choir! Choir! Choir!, Bernice and a special silent disco set by Rich Aucoin.
The Bentway is an innovative public space project underneath Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway and have now announced its Fall 2019 programming calendar under the theme Second Nature. From September to November 2019, The Bentway will bring together artists, community activists, urbanists, scientists and innovators to explore ways urban dwellers can reconnect to the natural world. Tickets can be found here.
