Full review to follow. Alexandra Gelis' Corredor began as a six-screen installation piece, but was reconfigured to one for this special presentation to close this year's Images Festival. A meditation on Panama and the interventions upon it caused by the American canal quest, Drake and Mott (on drums and sax) brought a site-specific musical response, annotating the newsreel footage, soundtracking the landscapes, and occasionally prowling up and down the aisles to fill the space with sounds. A wonderful one-of-a-kind event.
