SUGAR invites you to SHIFT - Sugar & Music: Shifting Site


SUGAR is a site-critical project located near the Redpath sugar factory on Toronto’s Sugar Beach, and formerly on the site of the seminal Guvernment and RPM nightclubs. The SUGAR music events pay homage to the Club by using dance and discourse to animate the material and cultural conditions explored by SUGAR’s curatorial project.

 
DateFriday, April 26, 2019 - 10:00pm to Saturday, April 27, 2019 - 4:00am

Location

130 Queens Quay, Unit 131

The first edition of this series of events at SUGAR is SHIFT, addressing the site of Sugar beach, where a colonial history of sugar production industry between Canada, UK and the Caribbean mirrors a history of cultural exchange and appropriation in music.

SHIFT is a project aimed at paying homage to the recent history of this site at 130 Queens Quay East, Toronto. SUGAR, will host this club-music event and free-form dialogue aimed at exploring the site’s cultural legacy. Aware of the tensions that continue to exist - the shadow of neo-colonialism to contend with and the economic history of extracting and refining Caribbean sugar cane for mass consumption in North America - SHIFT creates context to move and connect to these condition through dance and discourse.
