The Yellow Umbrella – An Unfinished Conversation
Performance: Chun Hua Catherine Dong
« The Yellow Umbrella – An Unfinished Conversation » est une performance de 60 minutes mettant en scène 12 interprètes en interaction avec des parapluies jaunes. Ici le parapluie jaune n’est pas seulement un symbole de protection, mais aussi un signe de résistance. « The Yellow Umbrella » est en quête d’un croisement où esthétique et politique sont le catalyseur l’une de l’autre, examinant la façon dont les comportements symboliques et situationnels déterminent la perception que nous avons d’un mouvement ou d’un changement social donné
“The Yellow Umbrella—An Unfinished Conversation” is a performance that involves twelve performers engaging with yellow umbrellas. In this work, the performers all wear white surgical masks and grey dresses. They stand in a row, repeating ten gestures. They hold each gesture for two minutes and then move to the next one in a sequence.The umbrella is a symbol of protection and resistance. This performance seeks an intersection where aesthetics and politics ignite each other, exploring how symbolic and situational behaviors impact on our perception in regards to specific social movements and activism. It is relevant to open conversations about how to transform social and political landscapes through embodied gestures, examining relationships between the citizens and the place they live, between what they have lost and what they have gained in social political transformations.
Performers: Camille Brisson, Zed Bee, Alexandra Côté, Bailey Eng, Alida Esmail, Laurence Eulalle, Lucy Fandel, Brittney Gering, Olivia. Faye Lathuillière, Natalie Montalvo, Mira Fister-Tadic, Mary Williamson.

Performance de Chun Hua Catherine Dong –
Twelve females wear red mouthpieces and white bath towels, standing in a row and facing the same direction. They repeat three still gestures: standing, kneeing, and lying on the floor. The performers hold each gesture for five minutes and then move to another gesture.
The gestures in the performance are inspired by gargoyle, a legendary stone-carved grotesque with a spout that normally is designed to convey water from a roof. Mouth serves as the opening for food intake and in the articulation of sound and speech. However, when performers wear the mouthpieces, or when women’s mouth is forced to open, the mouth loses its function. In fact, it silences and disables the women because they are unable to talk when their mouths are widely pulled open. This performance explores another side of the unseen and unspoken—the vulnerability, struggle, shame, and suffering that we are uneasy to share and expose.

Video Installation « Pluie » by Olivia Faye Lathuillière
Sponsored by the Munk School’s Program on Water Issues, ‘Not a Drop to Drink: Water Scarcity and Politics in the 21st Century’ was a conference that explored the causes of water scarcity, current accessibility and ownership of water as a resource, and how water diplomacy will impact future relations between states. In addition, one of Canada’s most experienced journalists, Brian Stewart (CBC), sat down for an in-depth conversation with Dr. Zafar Adeel, former Chair of UN-Water and Director of United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health for a discussion on the current Global Water Crisis facing the World today.

OUT OF GRACE / Compagnie De Brune
Performance : Lynda Gaudreau | Compagnie De Brune
Montreal choreographer Lynda Gaudreau has developed a project for the Gallery’s exhibition spaces. This hybrid and experimental project, at the borders of choreography and exhibition making is at once a choreographed exhibition and an exhibited choreography that questions the nature and relationship of these practices.
» Mon travail chorégraphique a toujours été proche de l’art visuel. Dans OUT OF GRACE, les artistes visuels ont été invités à réfléchir à la présentation de leurs œuvres dans le temps et l’espace de l’exposition, et ce, à l’intérieur d’un système chorégraphique. La question s’est bien sûr posée : quel artiste accepterait que son travail soit mis en espace ? Ce fut un des premiers sujets de discussion avec les artistes. Mon souci principal a été d’éviter la théâtralisation de l’espace, de l’objet et des corps. » LINDA GAUDREAU
“My choreography has always been akin to visual arts. In OUT OF GRACE, visual artists were invited to consider the presentation of their works through time, in the exhibit space and within a choreographic system. Of course, the question was asked: who would accept to have his or her work staged? This was one of our first topics of discussion. My primary concern was to avoid inscribing the space, the objects and the bodies as theatrical proposals.
“Choreographically ‘scripting’ an exhibit — to borrow an expression from Anri Sala — setting works in space and developing an exhibit with a score, imagining each room as a frame, a frame for working on duration.”LINDA GAUDREAU
