Continuum On Tour

November 12–26, 2008

Continuum performs repertoire from its European tour the night before it takes off. Destinations are Aberdeen, Scotland (Sound Festival); s’Hertogenbosch, Netherlands (November Music); Huddersfield, England (Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival); and two performances at its own SHIFT festival in Amsterdam – Canadian music and performers casting a long shadow.
