“rEvolver Festival: Geologic Formations”
Saturday May 26th, 2018 2PM – Special ASL (American Sign Language) Interpreted Performance for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Audience Members
Where: The Cultch, Greenhouse Studio (1895 Venables St, East Vancouver)
A bold melding of immersive multidisciplinary performance, intimate personal narrative, and theory, Geologic Formations explores the present-unseen: the way socio-political events haunt the individual and collective body. Curious about her experience of the present-unseen – invisible chronic illness impacting the (myo)fascia, and the invisibilized intergenerational impacts of war, genocide and displacement, specifically the 1943 liquidation of the Bia?ystok Ghetto, Poland – mia susan amir, with collaborators, creates an interactive experience that crosses and collapses time and geography; to talk to ghosts; to decode what shapes our perceptions; to face the limits and possibilities of empathy. Historically inspired, Geologic Formations is a response to the contemporary rise of fascism.
