"We have decided not to die."
- - -
ana explores the persecution of the feminine and uses elements of abstracted movement, text, clown, and song to express her many aspects. ana is a multifaceted being who has reached a breaking point and brought an audience together in a call for action. This work is a union of emotion, ceremony, violence, and rebellion.
The piece was in development from 2014 to 2016. Since it's initial Petri Dish Residency, ana was workshopped through UnoWorks in 2014, a two week devising workshop in January 2015, and a residency at the acclaimed Videofag in Toronto.
