  • Queer and Now
    • Abstract: In their introduction to Q2Q: Queer Canadian Performance Texts, the editors make an important observation with regard to the texts they have brought together in the collection: “The only categorical statement that can be made about the workings of queer theatrical style … is that such workings resist categorization” (vi). It is indeed a challenge to anthologize the many diverse voices in contemporary queer Canadian theatre and performance while also accounting for perspectives from artists, scholars, administrators, and practitioners working today. As theatre scholar David Román has observed, any engagement with the contemporary is also a necessary engagement with history, especially when accounting for the ... Read More

  • Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Acts and the Ka’tarohkwi Festival as
           Participatory Calls for Decolonization
    • Abstract: “How can a score be a call and tool for decolonization'” This question, asked by co-curators Dylan Robinson and Candice Hopkins, underpins Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts at the Agnes Etherington Arts Centre. Soundings took place alongside the second annual Ka’tarohkwi Festival of Indigenous Arts at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, also curated by Robinson; together, the two events offered performances, displays, and demonstrations that explored questions of action, decolonization, and Indigenization on the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples, in Kingston, Ontario, from January toParmela Attariwala’s performance of NDN Love Songs by Peter Morin.Photo by Tim ...

  • The Curious Voyage: The Potentials and Pitfalls of Immersive Performance
    • Abstract: When assessing a performance, there’s usually no higher compliment than to say it was transformational: that it transported its audiences, shifted the ground beneath their feet, and caused them to look at the world anew, as though they had travelled to a foreign country. One can apply those descriptions to Talk Is Free Theatre’s production of The Curious Voyage, not as praise but rather as fact. Called “the ultimate, international theatre adventure” in press materials (Murray Paterson), the immersive, site-engaging performance took place in October 2018, beginning in Barrie, Ontario, and concluding two days and an intercontinental flight later, in London, England.According to Talk Is Free Theatre, seventy-one ...

  • Canada Comes to CARIFESTA: The Caribbean International Festival of the
           Arts, Trinidad and Tobago, August 2019
    • Abstract: For ten days in August 2019, I attended CARIFESTA XIV in Trinidad and Tobago as part of the official Canadian delegation. CARIFESTA (Caribbean Festival of the Arts) is not a typical international festival. It does not involve programmers bringing in hallmark shows from the international touring circuit, thus “bringing the world to the Caribbean,” nor does it curate cutting-edge avant-garde events for art aficionados. Neither programmed nor curated by the organizers, the Caribbean Community, CARIFESTA invites Caribbean countries to bring artists in music, dance, theatre, literature, fashion, crafts, and culinary and other arts, as well as scholars and intellectuals, to a different host nation in each of its ...

  • Editorial: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
    • Abstract: EDI—equity, diversity, and inclusion—has emerged as a key acronym in theatre and performance classrooms, companies, and organizations reflecting on, encouraging, and institutionalizing these three concepts. For instance, PACT (Professional Association of Canadian Theatres) places considerations about EDI front and centre in its 2015–18 strategic plan, outlining how, in order to “become a leader in sectoral change,” PACT aims to create “trend-setting initiatives that support equity and diversity for theatre in Canada” and to be “a courageous advocate for theatre in Canada, inclusive of the dynamic breadth represented in the Canadian theatre ecology.” These are laudable goals, both responding to and encouraging ...

  • Wood Mountain Walk and the Possibilities of Decolonization through
           Relationships with People and Land in Solo Walking Performance
    • Abstract: Over nine days in July and August 2018, I made what Robert Macfarlane calls an “improvised pilgrimage” (235) in southern Saskatchewan. I called it Wood Mountain Walk: a 250-kilometre walk from Regina, the provincial capital, where I live, southwest to the village of Wood Mountain. I was walking in honour of the late poet Andrew Suknaski, who was born near that village and whose first and most important book, Wood Mountain Poems, takes the area’s hills and history as its subject matter. This pilgrimage was also a walking performance. Given its duration, it was the kind of walking performance Deirdre Heddon and Cathy Turner describe, disapprovingly, as “individualist, heroic, epic and transgressive” (224). The ... Read More

  • Spawning in Concrete: Bridging Urban and Wild with Uninterrupted: A
           Cinematic Spectacle
    • Abstract: Nettie Wild’s aspirations with Uninterrupted spring from an unlikely critical juxtaposition: “By using a piece of urban architecture to bring to light the extent to which salmon are something that we should embrace, there’s a possibility of seeing this story as it’s never been seen before” (qtd. in Seibert). Every evening from 28 June to 24 September 2017, twenty-five minutes of digitally mapped and projected images transformed the underside of Vancouver’s Cambie Street Bridge, at Cooper’s Park, “into a wild river filled with migrating salmon” (Canada Wild). Billed as a hybrid blending “cinematic storytelling and high-tech art installation,” the work spun a complex web of relations between humans, non-humans, and ... Read More

  • The Story of Extractivism
    • Abstract: Extractivism is a compelling story. For decades, it has promised that we would all ride into the sunset and live happily ever after. It is the stuff of fairy tales, a Disney movie, the physical representation of the American dream. Extractivism is also an ideology that puts us (actually, some of us), human beings, at the top of the food chain, and everything else below. It supports the notion that plundering is our God-given right simply because the resources are there. The story of extractivism is so pervasive and so woven into our modern culture that, until recently, we barely noticed it.However, with the increase of carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere, the depletion of natural resources, and the threat of ...

  • Renewable Relations in Make Muskrat Right
    • Abstract: 8 May 2018. St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. It’s a cold and sunny morning as I walk to Harbourside Park, where a mock memorial service called “In Loving Memory” is taking place as part of a National Day of Action protesting the massive hydroelectric generating station being constructed on the Churchill River (known by Indigenous peoples as the Grand River) at Muskrat Falls, Labrador. I can hear a drum several blocks before a small crowd becomes visible, gathered in a circle around an Inuk musician and a miniature black coffin. There are some Indigenous land protectors, but many of those who have gathered are, like myself,A coffin filled with laments at the National Day of Action against Muskrat Falls, St. ... Read More

  • Acting under Natural Laws
    • Abstract: On 15 April 2019, Rita Wong, Barry Morris, Mel Lehan, Kyle Farquharson, and Will Offley stood trial in the BC Supreme Court, having been charged with criminal contempt of court for challenging an injunction and blockading the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion on Burnaby Mountain. The five mountain defenders pleaded not guilty and invoked a “defence of necessity,” arguing that the imminent disaster of climate change, and decades of government inaction, had left them no alternative but to engage in civil disobedience.Though the group had hoped to win a verdict that would establish a precedent in Canadian law that other climate defenders could employ in future trials, on 16 August, BC Supreme Court Justice Kenneth ...

  • What Is Lost and What Is Gained: A Travelogue of Tours of Hydro-Affected
           Communities in Northern Manitoba
    • Abstract: Hydroelectric development may not appear ‘extractive’ in the same way as the mining, oil and gas, or forestry industries; however, it is an environmentally catastrophic endeavour that severely damages the material bases of ways of life in the middle and far north of Canada and impacts environments hundreds of kilometres beyond generating stations. In northern Manitoba, because there are no significant canyons to fill, land is flooded, and the impoundment creates huge artificial lakes and low-lying reservoirs. Transmission lines necessitate clear-cuts through thousands of acres of pristine boreal forest. Producing energy in the winter means reversing normal ecological cycles so that water flows can be increased; ... Read More

  • Shanty Songs and Echoing Rocks: Upsurges of Memory along Fault Lines of
           Extraction
    • Abstract: In 2008, elderly loggers in the Ottawa Valley floated a timber crib down the river. In this reperformance of an old journey downstream, they noticed that the crib did not move as easily as it used to. The river, who carried the heavy vessels swiftly for decades, had been slowed by damming processes in ways the oarsmen hadn’t anticipated (Corbett).1 When the Kiji Sibi/Ottawa River flooded last ziigwaan/spring, Chaudière Falls, a sacred site in unceded and untreatied Algonquin territory, pounded with water that was triple the flow of Niagara Falls (U/Baldphotog). Ottawa River-Keeper describes this upsurge of the river, her fast and destructive movement, as being quite like her state before she was dammed:Kiji Sibi ... Read More

  • Editorial: Extractivism and Performance
    • Abstract: From petro-sponsorship of the arts to performative acts of resistance against megadams, pipelines, and other sites of extraction, performance practices in Canada are being shaped by the natural resources of the land and the corporate and political entities with vested interests in resource extraction. Consider, for example, the Grandstand Show that follows the chuckwagon races on each of the ten nights of the Calgary Stampede. In 2017, the show, entitled Together: A Show 150 Years in the Making, featured popular recording artist Jann Arden, an homage to Leonard Cohen by Alberta Ballet, and Inuit throat singers Cailyn DeGrandpre and Samantha Kigutaq. Set against the backdrop of Canada’s sesqui-centennial ... Read More
