The 10th installment of Doors Open Richmond is a free weekend-long, city-wide public celebration of heritage, culture and the arts.  Join us for the Opening Celebration of this event at the Richmond Cultural Centre from 5:30 – 8:30 pm, featuring a live performance of Omnis Temporalis at 7:30 pm in the Art Gallery.

Omnis Temporalis is a multiform project that draws together the cartoon work of Canadian cartoonist, Seth, with contemporary classical music and performance by Vancouver-based composer, Mark Haney.  This free performance tells the story of Seth’s graphic novella George Sprott: 1894-1975 through dialogue and music.  Performing in Omnis Temporalis are Richard Newman, Dorothea Hayley, koralee, and Jovanni Sy. Music by Mark Takeshi McGregor on alto/bass flute, Marina Hasselberg on cello, and Mark Haney on double bass. Costumes by Diane Park.

Free admission.  Everyone welcome to attend.

Shorter performances will also be presented on Day 2 of Doors Open Richmond.  Join us at 2:00 pm or 3:00 pm on Saturday, June 3 for 20 minute performances of Omnis Temporalis, followed by a Q&A session for audience members.
