City calls for female performers to perform in A CHoRd

Information Sessions on Sunday for A CHoRd - a Site Performance Art Opportunity

  • Mar. 30, 2017 9:00 a.m.

Female movers, singers, actors and drummers are invited to attend an information session on Sunday to learn more about participating in the site-specific performance project titled A CHoRd, led by the City’s Indigenous Artist in Residence Lindsay Delaronde.

Delaronde is looking for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous females of all ages to participate in the performance, which will take place outdoors at the end of June, providing an opportunity for audience interaction.

Through site-specific performance art, we will seek to appropriate the colonial legislative system to dismantle existing hypocrisies and injustices while proposing new partnerships with an eye toward the potential for a contemporary and inclusive recreation where women’s voices, bodies and politics are reclaimed,” said Lindsay Delaronde.

The multidisciplinary piece will be co-created by Delaronde in collaboration with volunteer participants. During the three months leading up to the performance, participants will be required to meet on weekends to practice. The performance will be directed by Monique Salez, owner and artistic director of Raino Dance. Individuals are invited to learn more by attending one of two information sessions offered on Sunday.

Iroquois Mohawk artist Lindsay Katsitsakatste Delaronde is the City’s first Indigenous Artist in Residence. The new Indigenous Artist in Residence program provides the opportunity for a local artist to develop artistic works and engage the community in dialogue, workshops, events, and activities over a one-year term.
