  • evalynparry.com / SummerWorks: To Live in the Age of Melting: The Idea of North 2.0
    about the Canadian South Working in collaboration with projection visual artist Elysha Poirier as well as other musical friends we ll use what is gathered over the duration of the festival to create a longitudinal contrapuntal theatrical concert performed live on the final festival weekend an immersive audio and visual mediation upon what North and South mean to each other in Canada in this new Age of Melting Inspiration for this project In the summer of 2012 I took part in a two week sea voyage with the organization Students on Ice sailing from Iqaluit to Greenland aboard a research vessel with 80 high school students and 40 environmental scientists Inuit leaders and Arctic specialists Profound and eye opening the trip left me with more questions than answers curious about the many intersecting questions that guide the Age of Melting project A few months after the trip I began an artistic collaboration with artist Elysha Poirier creating a live performance and film to accompany my 20 minute song poem To Live in the Age of Melting Part i Northwest Passage Inspired by iconic Canadian folk song Northwest Passage by Stan Rogers and the 19 th century folk song Lady Franklin s Lament the film travels from Franklin s doomed Arctic expedition to contemporary Arctic Sovereignty from climate change to the human nervous system along the way probing the nature of colonial legacy tradition and what happens when old frozen parts of the world we know and parts of ourselves begin to melt Now taking a cue from Glenn Gould s 1967 CBC Radio documentary The Idea of North I m re opening Gould s poetic yet dated contemplation of the North in Canadian conscience identity proposing that we can no longer consider North without also considering South and how these

  • evalynparry.com / What the F*** is Feminism?!
    a pretty vital conversation on campus which is really exciting to me The folks from the Women s Center had asked that the workshop include a history of feminism which turned out to be an epic undertaking somewhat impossible tried to do it but failed in 15 minutes my brief and thus VERY superficial overview wound up at more like 25 minutes But it was a very though provoking task which i now am thinking may have reason to grow into a larger project in the future As passsionate as i feel that the world still badly needs feminism this look at where we ve been where this movement came from how it has intersected with and been influenced by other social movements what the key issues have been and how they ve evolved is pretty cool and helpful to look at in terms of where we are going and the nature of the work still ahead To quote the visioinary bell hooks Rooted in neither fear nor fantasy Feminism is a movement to end sexism sexist exploitation and oppression This excellent clear definition certainly clarifies for me that feminism s goal is far from finished yet More posts Gertrude
