PDA, performed with PDA dancers and Koine
Nuit Blanche 2017
For a collaboration with dancers from PDA, I wrote lines of poetry
which fit into four categories; earth, air, water, fire. These lines of poetry
were read aloud by members of a public audience to dancers (PDA) and musicians (KOINE) during a 12 hour performance on Dundas Street in London ON. The poetry complimented an abstract score the musicians from KOINE were working from - the poetry also influenced the rhythmic movements and gestures performed by the dancers. This work was performed for Nuit Blanche in London ON.

Culture Day, 2017
This text accompanied a media installation we installed on Dundas Street for Culture Day in 2017. The installation included two TV's and two chairs facing each other. The TV's screened video footage of a derive the four of us took around London. Poetry which we wrote collaboratively was laid over the footage of the derive, like subtitles.
