Contrary Collective (ON, AB)

The Contrary Collective is an ad-hoc collective comprised of Terrance Houle, Ulysses Castellanos and Cathy Gordon. The name is derived from the Contrary character portrayed in the 1970’s Hollywood film “Little Big Man” (Arthur Penn). As well, the term is apropos to the individual personalities of the collective and their position within the arts community.

Houle, Castellanos and Gordon have a long history of varied multidisciplinary practices and collaboration. Their work combines artistic rigour with a sense of humour and a questioning of form that transcends traditional sensibilities of theatre, performance art, and multi-media.

Little Big Man Remix is a 70-minute multimedia performance examining concepts of traitorous behaviour within our own identity and our relationships with each other and with the earth.
