FADO Performance Art Centre presents êkâya-pâhkaci [ee-guy-uh-puck-a-chee] (don’t freeze up) by Cheryl L’Hirondelle.

êkâya-pâhkaci operates through an intersection of nomadic site-specificity, visual patterning, language, narrative, movement and rhythm. In this work the artist stages a performance presented under an adaptable traveling tent from where she relates and offers information to the audience using her body, voice and graffiti/tagging. The audience, by proximity and in accepting her invitation to witness her activities "comes in from the cold" and becomes part of her '"camp."

Performance: October 16, 8:00pm
Gallery Open Hours: October 16, 12:00pm–6:00pm

Presented in conjunction with the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Art Festival
