bear witness performances, Flux Media Gallery, March 10, 2017
Bearing Witness is a weekend of media and performance art, exploring issues of personal, historical and cultural traumas, and looking at key themes of race, gender, childhood experiences, and the place of the individual. These private, often marginalized histories will be brought forward to be witnessed by the audience, with the question, what happens when something hidden is brought into the light? What is the role of contemporary storytelling?
7pm March 10: performances by Open Actions (Grace Salez, Judith Price and Brenda Petays) (Victoria) and Cindy Mochizuki (Vancouver) and 1pm March 11: video and performance by Deanna Bowen (Toronto) and Archer Pechawis (Toronto)
