A co-presentation of anARC Theatre and the Circus Kingston Collective, Uncovering
is a work-in-progress video collaboration featuring artists connected to Kingston, Ontario. It seeks to uncover the untold stories of people, places and institutions, shared from a place of lived experience. Combining drumming, singing, circus arts, story-telling, dance, poetry, sign language and voice, we uncover stories of activism, Black joy, Deaf history, Indigenous thanks and grief, Mad and Disabled horror stories, and reflections from a Japanese student’s perspective. The artists are mostly new to digital work and have adapted their typical live performance modalities to work within our current pandemic reality.
On December 16th we shared a first showing of this work in progress. Thanks to HowlRound Theatre Commons, you can watch it here.
