Presented by Encore Ottawa

Yolande Laroche, a Franco-Taiwanese Canadian artist based in Ottawa, reflects on her hyphenated identity, life and death, and themes of alienation in her debut solo project under the pseudonym Orchidae. Soft, hypnotic melodies and mantras intertwine with minimal yet meaningful—at times psychedelic—orchestration.

Encore Ottawa Season 2 was filmed at the Shenkman Arts Centre in winter 2021. These live tapings adhered to the health and safety guidelines of Ottawa Public Health and the Province of Ontario at all times. View Encore Ottawa Production Safety notes.
