Making Nothing

During the second day of my residency at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, I thought a lot about performance as an artform, and particularly about artforms that create no permanent art object. Nothing Gold Can Stay By Robert Frost Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a flower; But only … More Making Nothing

RITES Begins Today

Le racommodage

I’ve been working on a new performance piece since the beginning of this year, a sort of companion to my show, Piecework: When We Were French, that approaches some of the same themes, but from a more personal perspective. This summer, as I’ve been thinking about how to expand this new piece into a whole, … More Le racommodage

The Bridge

I’m excited to be contributing to The Bridge, “an artistic interrogation, exploration and celebration” of Canada 150 by a whole gang of Fredericton artists. Spearheaded by local theatre company Solo Chicken Productions, the project is part art installation, part historiographic jam session. On the evening of Friday, September 8th, Fredericton’s Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge will … More The Bridge
