Mika Posen, who makes music under the name Merganzer, and Montreal media artist Sonya Stefan present Passé Composé, a collaborative live performance based on the theme of transformation. Stefan creates dynamic live images by performing with disintegrating equipment, from broken video mixers, to scratched and worn celluloid film strips, to glitched television screens. She transforms, manipulates and overlaps projections in real time, creating a truly unforgettable experience.
