Not Your Standard Coffeehouse: an evening of dark and dirty musings and mash-ups by local femmes fatale.

CLAIRE MORRISON with Montreal’s ENSEMBLE PARAMIRABO / chanteuse + video duo THE GRITTY mutilate and mutate pop art song of the 19th century / sentimental bedroom doo-wop care of SLATTERN / SASHA AMAYA’s silhouettes fill the space with silent noise

After Hours: Dance the night away to local super duo MISE EN SCENE’s boisterous mix of substance, sincerity, swagger & reverb and to DJs Blain Bee and Incredible Thunderforce!

The Directors of the cluster festival, Heidi Ouellette and Luke Nickel

“Cluster is Canada’s most dynamic take on contemporary art and sound. Presenting thought-provoking concerts and an annual core festival in Winnipeg, Cluster is a platform for artists to create, to experiment, and to collaborate. Cluster is propelled by strength found in numbers and the energy created by integrating diverse artistic communities – combining collective mentality with individual sensibility.

Created in 2008 by composers Heidi Ouellette and Luke Nickel, the inaugural Cluster: New Music and Integrated Arts Festival took place in Winnipeg, MB in 2010. What began as a single thread of boundless enthusiasm has evolved into a complex set of ideals and goals. Along with the annual festival, Cluster collaborates with individuals and organizations to create events throughout the year, engaging and enriching both the local and the greater artistic community.

Cluster’s programming is unapologetic in its innovation, and unrelenting in its optimism and integrity, forging a new path forward through joyous exploration of endless possibility.”
