Seven Day Wonder
Seven Day Wonder

Description:  "Seven Day Wonder" is a multi media project that will parallel the name days given to the seven day cycle of the Roman calendar compared to the name days given to the Algonquians by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate starting in the early 1800's. The reserve known as Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg beside the town of "Maniwaki", Algonquian for "Mary's Land", incorporates days that literally defined, relate to the culture and rituals of the Roman Catholic traditions compared to the Roman- Pagan calendar that honours the planets and Gods in the universe.

Originally written and performed for the 2001 Longest Night Festival in Whitehorse, Horse has transformed into a New Media performance with the development of a "digital drum", a hand drum with a "forward-engineered" laptop inside, which played video.
