êkâya-pâhkaci by Cheryl L'Hirondelle

Prior to the evening performance, the gallery will be open for viewing and visiting from 12–6pm on Thursday October 16, 2008.

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'.
