A weekend of concerts by BEAST during its 30th anniversary season, Vanishing Point includes an appearance by Canadian born clarinettist Heather Roche, performing works for clarinet and electronics by current and former BEASTies Scott Wilson, Norah Lorway, Pierre Alexandre Tremblay and Alex Harker.

The weekend concludes with La historia de nosotros (the history of us), a cycle of four 20-minute 8-channel works (two with percussionist) by Colombian composer Jorge Gregorio García Moncada, inspired by a corpus of mythological and historical chronicles from the Huitoto nation, an ethnolinguistic group based in the Colombo-Peruvian Amazon region.
