Being Lost, with Tom Allen & Friends
In 1965, John Cage took a trip to Emma Lake art campus of the University of Saskatchewan and got lost for 15 hours, after going into the woods to search for mushrooms. Cage and this unique trip are the inspiration behind Being Lost, a walkabout experience of pop-up sets of music set at secret spots around Canada’s oldest cemetery. Centred around fifteen 100-word essays about Cage, his music, and his art… this experience explores what it means to be lost.
