A community participatory performance that examines how human bodies are in relationship to nature and examines theatrical and human failure through the lens of LGBTQ+ & BIPOC individuals.
Conceived by multidisciplinary artist facilitator, teacher, arts producer and community organizer – Kevin Jesuino – the online show features fifteen participants who identify as part of, or as allies with Edmonton’s LGBT or BIPOC communities.
Participants include Shrina Patel, Shannon Murphy, Sebastian Rueda, Sar J Culkin, Roseanna Joy Nay, Nuala Kennedy, NIUBOI, Nikki Barran, Moses Kouyaté, Monica Gate, Mitchell Chalifoux, Falon Scheers, Antonio Bavaro.
Without complete knowledge of each other’s activities, participants journey into nature to pre-record a video based on a simple score provided by Jesuino. All footage remains unedited and unseen until it’s played simultaneously at a live performance.
Tickets are ‘pay what you can’ with a suggested price of $15 to cover programming expenses. Those unable to purchase a ticket at this time are welcome to a free ticket.
