Theater artist Mallory Catlett’s Decoder 2017 uses the prophetic writing of William Burroughs as the basis for a performance installation. The work sets out to test his theory that “when you cut up the present the future leaks in.” Catlett’s title makes reference to the 1984 West German film Decoder, which was inspired by Burroughs’ Electronic Revolution—specifically his instructions on how to use tape recorders to spark social uprising. Performer Jim Findlay and noise artist and analog tape deejay G Lucas Crane use live sound and text cut-ups to generate a simultaneous visual reality. Acting both as characters within a fictional world and real-life systems operators, they infiltrate each other’s bodies in the psychic battle of man and machine.

A Evening with Fond of Tigers

Presented with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival


Behind the Juno Award-winning band Fond of Tigers are seven of Vancouver’s leading musical creatives, led by Stephen Lyons and including members Jesse Zubot and JP Carter. Their avant-garde sound textures and post-rock structures hover defiantly in undefined musical territory. At the Club we’ll be treated to their pick of short music films by Louisville’s Colin Garcia and songs from their forthcoming album.
