KINE-POETICS/CINÉ-POÉTIQUES: Queer & Trans Music As a Means of Survival  Stephanie Creaghan Nat Navi Lees Brenson + Mitch Westcott (Dregqueen)
23 Oct 2019 to 31 Oct 2019

During this research residency Stephanie Creaghan, Nat Navi, and Lees Brenson and Mitch Westcott (Dregqueen) will highlight the power of collaboration, inter-support and music through performance, video and sculpture.

The open studio hours are from 3pm to 5pm, each day of the residency. 

The residency will feature AV/tactile manifestations or responses to music, culminating in a closing musical performance at the end on October 31, 8pm (doors at 7pm). Please note: the closing performance is not child friendly.


Stephanie Creaghan makes work about how violence inserts itself into communication, combining different pathways (like audio and video) to uncover these latent forms of manipulation and the resulting pain to bring to light the undiscussed/repressed.

Nat Navi is an Latinx experimental techno producer, based and raised in Montreal. They create auditory landscapes taking inspiration from the void – exploring the known and unknown.

Dregqueen (Lees Brenson and Mitch Westcott) is a performative dragging of refuse meant to unearth the previously unseen, with both eyes pried open. Formed in Montreal in 2018, Dregqueen’s music is best described as “Trans Femme body pop” driven by feeling, intended to make the audience move.
