Sibling Rivers

Allison Wyper, Sam Fox, Terrance Houle

Festivals: M:ST 7 Festival September 26 - October 11, 2014.

The collaboration is a live intermedia performance installation that bridges three sites, Perth, Western Australia; Los Angeles, California; and Calgary, Alberta, through an exploration of the rivers that run through the heart of each city, carrying the social histories of each site. These embedded histories call forth transnational themes of colonialism, cultural erasure, and economic conflict. Motivated by the feminist ethos “the personal is political” the collective actions claim the river space as public as well as deeply intimate, as home to many, living and deceased.
