Every so often there is a gathering of artists that seems pivotal on the national stage. Primary Colours/Couleurs primaires (PC/Cp) was such a Gathering (not a conference, you will note!).

In five separate pieces, Rungh explores PC/Cp and its implications for the Canadian arts scene. An interview with Directors Chris Creighton-Kelly and France Trépanier, is joined by three pieces of Reflection by artists Samaqani Cocahq, David Garneau, and Zab Maboungou (Zab’s piece is in English and French). Tara Hogue’s review of Deconstructing Comfort at the Open Space gallery (featuring seven of the artists at PC/Cp), rounds out the PC/Cp feature in this issue of Rungh.

The activist art of Farrah Marie Miranda is featured in Rungh’s Artist Run Centre (and in the banners), with text by Tara Atluri. It will make you think about the food you eat and how it gets to your table.

Scheherazaad Cooper reviews the physical theatre in Encounter and reflects upon the challenges of translating a Bengali short story to the performance stage.

For jazz maniacs, Rungh provides a review by David Adler of new recordings by Rudresh Mahanthappa (Agrima) and Rez Abbasi (Unfiltered Universe). Let it not be said that Rungh does not offer its readers the universe, and more!
