TBD: Replay of the stream
Please join us for ilvs strauss' MFA Project, Peter and the Wolf, presented in collaboration with Colin Williscroft, June Hsu, Laura Coons, and Megan Lane.
Peter and the Wolf is a retelling of the classic symphonic fairy tale for children, queerly remade through a lens of digital and circumstantial scenography.
Incorporating elements of film, live music, and imposed communication technologies, the performance boldly imagines what has transpired in the theatre in the six months since the artists were forced to abandon the theatre, leaving the characters to their own devices.
Peter and the Wolf explores the performance and agency of identity through a layered, mediated lens, inviting viewers to reflect on new definitions of otherness, of spectatorship, of representation.
Told largely from the perspective of the Wolf, the performance challenges diametric oppositions of the self through an infinite journey of simultaneity, moving away from Either and Or towards an inclusive Neither alive with possibilities.
Presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the Degree of Master of Fine Arts at Simon Fraser University.
This work will be presented and has been developed on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
