Strive and Drift: We Claim Anonymity

N2M2L will be hosting local media performance group ‘We claim Anonymity’ to present Strive and Drift, a performance and screening happening as part of the Downtown Gallery Hop on May 15th.

For this new 45-minute video collage piece, we claim anonymity will project out onto Main Street a brand new video and will “perform” the soundtrack live for listeners. Audience members will be encouraged to participate. Included in the collage is a shortened version of a silent film by Sergei Eisenstein called Strike and footage recently shot along the Moose River in northern Ontario.
