Meet at Trench Gallery. 6:30PM – Performance in Crab Park.
Presented with the generous support of Neutral Ground, Regina.
For the 2011 LIVE Festival, I propose to work with/at a social agency (yet to be determined) – one which preferably serves a high Indigenous population – or perhaps, just within the vicinity of such an agency, on a rather poetic, engaging, relational action/performance piece. I prefer to keep my performance details quite loose at this time as I prefer to be responsive to the actual site.
