CANADA invites you to wig-out during a month long residency of Dadarhea.
What began as a summer workshop for video ideas to manifest has now become an unruly feature-length film formed of individuals collaborating in abandon. All participants have been swirling around and bumping into each other for at least 10 years and the collective sensibilities are broad yet unified in a pact to explore, laugh, splat, maximize, question, flap, drop, trough, dangle and generally go too far in the name of curiosity without actually killing a cat. You the viewer are the beneficiary of all this and more. In conjunction with the video there will be a group show presenting the work of Dadarheans.
Dadarheans include: Devin Flynn, Jim Drain, Francine Spiegel, Taylor McKimens, Takeshi Murata, Ara Peterson, Leif Goldberg, Jessie Gold, Bec Stupak, Neil Fazzari, Naomi Fisher, Melissa Brown, Erin Krause, Laura Grant, Brian Belott, Johnny Woods, Rich Porter, Billy Grant, Alison Kuo, Alvaro Ilizarbe, Jen Stark, Ross Goldstein, Trish Riefert, Debbie Tuch, Sam Borkson, Bert Rodriguez, Jeffery Williams, Michael Williams, Marie Lorenz, Annie Pearlman, Seth Cooper, Owen Osborne, Chris Kucinski, and Joe Grillo.
This is the second incarnation of Dadarhea which originally began in Miami at OHWOW gallery. The opening night will feature a screening of Dadarhea and a special live performance by Robert Beatty (of Hair Police and Three Legged Race) to accompany a video mix by Devin Flynn and Takeshi Murata. Throughout the month, Dadarheans will invite you to participate in a variety of workshops, events and musical performances. In celebration of this premiere and residency, CANADA has printed a special book complete with a DVD of the film!
