  • The Relentless Struggle for Commemoration
    • Abstract: As we assemble this issue in late summer and early autumn 2017, the majority of “celebrations” of Canada’s sesquicentennial have just concluded. Canada’s 150th anniversary has been characterized by ambivalence and cynicism, particularly in contrast to the year of national jubilation that marked the 1967 Centennial. The sesquicentennial sharply follows the official conclusion, in December 2015, of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Residential Schools with its issuing of 94 Calls to Action and the almost simultaneous establishment of a National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. It also coincides with the announcement, on 6 October 2017, of an “agreement in principle” to resolve ... Read More

  • Where Water Meets Land: Water’s Time and Place’s Thought in Rebecca
           Belmore’s Fountain
    • Abstract: Before there was Canada 150, there was the Columbus Quincentenary in 1992. Before that, there was the Canadian Centennial of 1967, accompanied by the extravagant and cutting-edge Expo ’67, a “category one” world’s fair held in Montreal. These twentieth- and twenty-first-century commemorations, along with many others, were large-scale spectacles of nationalist display that adeptly and simultaneously included and disregarded the first peoples of the settler nations of Canada and the United States. For example, in a move aimed to prevent resistance to the Columbus Quincentenary, George H. W. Bush issued Proclamation 6407, a document that declared 1992 the “Year of the American Indian” and ostensibly celebrated Native ... Read More

  • Forgetting Asian Canadian Experimental Performance: Haruko Okano and Fred
           Wah’s High( bridi)Tea
    • Abstract: Performance still from High(bridi)Tea, at the Nice Café, Vancouver, BC, 17 November 2000.Photo by Merle Addison, courtesy of grunt galleryIn a small, neighbourhood cafe in Mount Pleasant, Vancouver, a growing crowd assembles on a chilly November evening in the year 2000. The mood is cheery and boisterous inside; as people arrive, they greet each other with familiarity. Soon, the din of small talk swells as more and more people come inside from the cold. Inside, a long table is set up, banquet-style, with white china tea and coffee cups at the ready. There are four vinyl-lined booths along the far right wall, and a small area immediately to the left of the restaurant’s front entrance has been sectioned off to ... Read More

  • Stitch-by-Stitch: An Unsettling Labour of Re-inscription
    • Abstract: There are no Indigenous issues in this country —there are colonial issues in this country.It’s raining again. I’m holding an umbrella for Esther, straining to angle it so the water streaming off its pointed tines doesn’t spill onto nearby embroiderers. It’s Canada Day on the sesquicentennial—Canada Day squared. Intermittent thunderstorms are coinciding precisely with the 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. timeslot of Stitch-by-Stitch’s UNsettling Canada 150 Sewing Circle and Picnic.1 To my surprise, the rain hasn’t dampened participants’ spirits. I’m surrounded by a group of twenty to thirty intrepid stitchers with umbrellas and soggy red thread in hand who have gathered in Queen’s Park to embroider text from the Truth and ... Read More

  • oh-oh Canada: Sweet Treats for Unsettling Futures
    • Abstract: oh-oh Canada mobilizes embodied, relational, collaborative, performative, and material strategies in resistance to the erasures that infuse implicit and explicit forms of commemoration with the state and dominant Canadian society’s “preferred memory” (Lehrer and Milton 3). It is a hybrid collaborative/curatorial project that injects politics into Canadiana to perform interventions into accepted knowledge, ways of knowing and collective remembrance. In it, I brought together seven artists—Adrian Stimson (Siksika-Blackfoot), Cecily Nicolson (mixed Black diaspora), Lisa Myers (Anishinaabe), Peter Morin (Tahltan), Cheryl L’Hirondelle (Cree/Métis), David Garneau (Métis), Michael Farnan (first generation Canadian), and ...

  • Memory, Milestones, and Monuments: A Peripatetic Exploration of the West
           Side of UBC Campus
    • Abstract: Recently, reflexive walking practices have gained increased attention as creative and analytic tools, engaging what Deirdre Heddon and Cathy Turner have called “peripatetic methodologies” (15). Inspired by these practices, in April 2016, a performative event was organized as part of the West Coast’s annual Tri-University Graduate Colloquium in Theatre and Performance Research, hosted at the University of British Columbia. The hour-long Amble explored a portion of the UBC campus, staging embodied discourse at outdoor sites to reflect on the colloquium theme, “Milestones and Commemoration.” Pierre Nora uses the term lieux de mémoire to describe sites that escape “the conquest and eradication of memory by history” ...

  • Negotiating Multiple Narrative Authorities at Eve of Confederation
    • Abstract: The goal of creating national historical narratives is deeply embedded in the traditions of living history museums. The prototype for the genre is Skansen, an open-air museum built in Sweden in the late nineteenth century depicting a model Swedish village, which became “an ideal setting for a family outing or a patriotic celebration” (J. Andersen 21). Skansen’s twin purposes as a family destination and a site for national solemnization continue to be the primary goals of contemporary living history museums worldwide. In Canada, the advent of living history museums came with the 1950 Royal Commission on National Development in the Arts, Letters, and Sciences (better known as the Massey Commission), which supported ...

  • Canada Day/Memorial Day
    • Abstract: In Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada Day is also Memorial Day. On the morning of 1 July 1916, the Newfoundland Regiment made its tragic advance on Beaumont-Hamel, as part of the Somme offensive. The Newfoundland Regiment was stationed in trenches near the village, which lay behind German lines. Its goal was to seize control of the German trenches. The Regiment began the third wave of the attack, following the first two waves that were devastating failures. With no friendly fire to cover their advance, German cross-fire cut across the lines, killing and wounding many men immediately. On 2 July 1916, only 68 of 801 men answered roll call. The events of that day are forever seared into the cultural memory of the ... Read More

  • A Confederation Minstrel Show: The Centennial Play of 1967
    • Abstract: Because commemorations are enactments that confirm the sponsor’s power to define history, requisition resources, and summon spectatorship, any performance can suit the purpose. The fundamental purpose of the commemorative operation of power, text, and performance is the affective, felt confirmation of ideology in performers and spectators alike. The text of the commemoration may be a direct representation of the object of remembrance, as in historical pageants; it might be indirect, as in a musical tribute or a parade; it may even be an absence, as it is in the two-minute silence on Remembrance Day.But what if a commemorative performance has no actual textual or ideological function other than its own exercise of ...

  • The Spectre of Louis Riel: Opera, Archive, and the Silent Witness
    • Abstract: On 20 April 2017, the Canadian Opera Company (COC) launched its production of Mavor Moore, Jacques Languirand, and Harry Somers’s 1967 opera Louis Riel. Taking my seat on opening night, I looked toward the stage and was confronted with a full screen projection of Riel’s eye. Observing, contemplating, and adjudicating, the image seemed prepared to critique how director Peter Hinton’s revival would unfold. As a director, Hinton knows that any rendering of a life is never definitive. Instead, for this production, he offers a set of central aims: “to question suppositions the opera makes about the historical Riel; to provide a thoughtful, multi-faceted examination of what it commemorates; ... and, to offer some ...

  • Homage to Joy Coghill: (Born 13 May 1926, Findlater, Saskatchewan; died 20
           January 2017, Vancouver, British Columbia)
    • Abstract: Joy Coghill was the Artistic Director of the Vancouver Playhouse when it produced The Ecstasy of Rita Joe in November 1967. And she was the AD for a little while longer, when Rita Joe was the opening performance at the National Arts Centre (NAC) in June 1969.Everything about those statements is revolutionary. Joy Coghill was the first woman to be in charge of a major Canadian theatre. The new AD made a very brave decision to produce such a “problem” play in both theme and structure. Further, Ryga’s play is recognized now as the script that proved “Canadian theatre” was not an oxymoron, by virtue of its great success and its position as the only Canadian offering at the NAC’s opening (James). Plus, Rita Joe ... Read More

  • Braids of a River: Memory and Performance in the North
    • Abstract: It was a February winter evening in Dawson City, Yukon, on traditional Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in territory in 2016. After a full day of rehearsal, Chris Clarke invited the creative team of Map of the Land, Map of the Stars (Map) over to her cabin for dinner.1 So we all put on our snow pants, toques, and mitts and trekked across the frozen Yukon River and followed the walking path through the forest to find her cabin, heated and warm. By candlelight, we sat around a big wooden table, sharing a meal and our stories. As we were all talking and laughing, I was starting to get a glimpse of our collective artistic practice. We were sharing impulses, images, fragments of stories, and memories; each of these things built upon one ... Read More

  • Editorial: Remembering Performances
    • Abstract: CTR 174 is thematized around commemoration, considering how performances allow people to remember together and the sociohistorical function of theatre as memory-making machine. If performances are significant locations of cultural memory, then it is critical to examine how they work: documenting, archiving, and recording. As many contributors suggest, however, commemoration is a fraught practice, one that too often allows dominant voices to inscribe and naturalize troubling and violent histories and to marginalize, or even erase, the experiences of the less powerful.Performances document, archive, and record experience and memory, but in order to track their cultural labour over time, we also must examine how ...

  • Navigating the Digital and the Real in Zuppa Theatre’s The Archive
           of Missing Things
    • Abstract: As I sat at one of the many small tables lining the glass interior wall of the second floor of Dalhousie University’s Killam Library in Halifax, Nova Scotia, waiting for Zuppa Theatre’s The Archive of Missing Things to begin, I found myself taking in my familiar surroundings in a new way. From my solitary desk, I watched the lazy action in the atrium two stories below: two students entered wearing graduation regalia, a woman in a green coat hunched over a book, another woman with a large purse thumbed through a newspaper. Were these performers, or library patrons' If they were patrons, was there something intrusive about the way I was scrutinizing their behaviour from my perch above the action' But then again, that ...

  • “Because It’s Ritual, and We’re Living”: Living Ritual
           International Indigenous Performing Arts Festival
    • Abstract: Fleck Dance Theatre, Harbourfront, Tkaronto (Toronto), 25–27 July 2017Indigenous Studies scholarship in recent years has featured debates over the relative merits of strictly Nation-specific versus “trans-Indigenous” research methods. Chadwick Allen, of Chickasaw ancestry, has argued for the value of supplementing Nation-specific work with an approach that acknowledges “the mobility and multiple interactions of Indigenous peoples, cultures, histories and texts” by “reading across and through texts ‘close together placed’ rather than ‘together equal’” (Trans-Indigenous xiv, xxviii). The Living Ritual Festival, produced by Kaha:wi Dance Theatre, provided an opportunity for precisely the kinds of analysis Allen calls ... Read More
