This Spring — Daina Ashbee returns to her hometown of Nanaimo to present her riveting installation performance, Serpentine. The work (performed by Areli Moran) vibrates the essence of Ashbee’s dark and feminine pieces, and is intended as a short and intense summary of her previous three works: Unrelated (2014); When the ice melts, will we drink the water? (2016); and Pour (2016).
Audiences are invited onto the Port Theatre stage to witness this intimate depiction of liberating strength. Serpentine evokes endurance in both performer and spectator; it explores the violence of repressing the female body, and its innate capacity to abide.
Please Note: Venue change from Nanaimo Art Council Gallery to The Port Theatre.
