Pique ✶ Spring Edition 2022

I had a fun great time during Debaser‘s Pique ✶ Spring Edition 2022 on March 19, 2021.
Pique is a hybrid event that blends music and arts from shows, screenings, installations, and online programming in Saw Gallery, Arts Court and Ottawa Art Gallery.
While the province is almost on the eve of lifting the Covid mandate, it was a still a masked show and the turnout in this edition was great on missing people at shows.

Started off the IFFO 4k remaster screening of Shortbus which stars Sook-Yin Lee.
I wanted to be there for the Q&A with Sook-Yin Lee and it was very entertaining and insightful.

First time in Ottawa for the Montreal musician where it was a beautiful atmospheric electronic and pop music.
See big things for Ouri.
