Half concert, half story telling event, Little Volcano is a new work of autobiography, exploring Vancouver musician and composer Veda Hille’s history through personal stories, the music of JS Bach and a collection of her favourite songs. Once dubbed ‘The Little Volcano’ in a 1996 Hamburg concert review, Hille has experienced some of the most complicated and unique brushes with love and death over her 30-year career — equally heart-breaking and inspiring. Little Volcano traces a path to the ecstatic through communion with the natural world, societies of women, medical emergencies and a lifetime of playing piano.
Little Volcano is created in collaboration with Hille and T/R’s artistic directors, Maiko Yamamoto and James Long. A long time Artistic Associate of the company (East Van Panto, Yu-Fo, Sexual Practices of the Japanese, Empty Orchestra among others), Hille, Long and Yamamoto have been making work together for close to 2 decades. Lighting by Sophie Tang.
