Events by date, live and livestreamed Stories & interviews 100 recordings reviewed Listening Room PHOTO: LUCA PERLMAN Volume 27 No 1 | September 15 – November 5, 2021 In the last week of June, as the identification of Indigenous children’s unmarked graves at former residential schools in B.C. and Saskatchewan was making the truth unavoidable, I took an orange shirt and loosely wove it into a piece of trellis in my Kensington Market front yard, facing along the sidewalk. In time for Canada Day. An orange shirt, in tatters but still somehow in one piece, speaking, if only to myself, to my feelings of helplessness, sorrow, paralyzing complicity. A bit later in the summer, I took it down and twisted it into a kind of rope, then wove it back into the trellis, more permanently, the way you see it here. A child came by while I was twisting and weaving the cloth, 16 or 17 years old, maybe, an empty wine bottle in each hand, weaving in a different way. “Do you have a toonie for me?” he asked. “Sorry, no change” I said, automatically, absorbed in making art. — David Perlman SIBELIUS 3 5 FOR OPENERS | Blue Pages and Orange Shirts | DAVID PERLMAN STORIES & INTERVIEWS 7 REMEMBERING | R.
