La Force
Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre presents ON STAGE CONCERT: La Force

La Force

Spotlight On Stage Concert Series

$30 General Admission. ONE NIGHT ONLY!

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents On Stage Concert: La Force on Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 7:00pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre as part of the SPOTLIGHT On Stage Concert Series. With the audience seated cabaret style on stage, our SPOTLIGHT On Stage Concert Series allows for audiences to relax and enjoy an up-close and personal concert in this intimate venue.

La Force is Ariel Engle, vocalist and newest member of Broken Social Scene. The music of La Force is nocturnal electronic pop, featuring Engle's enchanting vocals over dynamic production.

Her presence resounds on Broken Social Scene’s 2017 album, Hug Of Thunder, lending fluid, commanding vocals to the oblique anthem “Stay Happy,” and leaving an indelible mark on the collective’s rousing performances. Stepping up to the role first helmed by the immeasurable talent of Leslie Feist, Engle brings La Force's singularity to the familial energy of Broken Social Scene.

Born out of the culmination of AroarA – her musical project with husband and Broken Social Scene bandmate Andrew Whiteman – La Force is a deep reflection on the magic and dismantlement of motherhood; the never-ending tightrope walk of life, and death; and the re-discovery of self.
