The Truth About Time
Centre Court (Ground Level beside Box Office)
Dates: October 2, 2014 - October 10, 2014
EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts is excited to welcome performance artist Jacqueline Mann for a week of unique space animation in partnership with the Mountain Standard Time Performative Art Festival. A member of the M:ST Festival for the past six years, EPCOR CENTRE is proud to be involved with other member organizations across Alberta.
Mann’s performance is an exploration of the physical process of time, where she endeavors to stop it from moving forward in a hopeless effort. She is destined to fail but uses the never ending struggle to keep time from slipping away from her, to produce work that challenges our role in society and questions the boundaries of time. This is communicated through a treadmill which has Mann constantly running, without ever making progress.
“I feel as though I am standing in a fast flowing river with the water being my life. The current surrounds me. With my arms stretched out I am helpless,” says Jacqueline Mann. “Attempting to stop the course of nature, yet the instantaneous, fierce and hurling force of time just slips through my fingers”

On October 9th from 11am-2pm the EPCOR CENTRE will also be hosting Adam Waldron Blain a self-proclaimed famous artist from Edmonton to perform a three hour durational piece. Adam Waldron Blain plays nothing but the hits can be interpreted as artificial or as authentic, but regardless of the interpretation the reading is rendered as absurd and difficult through repetition—one old song, for three hours. His performance will take place in the foyer of the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
