Obscura Lucida – Mia Amir and Cease Wyss

STANLEY PARK – SECOND BEACH PICNIC AREA (8901 Stanley Park Dr)
300-400PM

Obscura Lucida / The Land of My Body is an interdisciplinary durational performance combining storytelling, an original score, and movement. Audience members are invited to the liminal world of the shoreline to explore the “present-unseen”: the stories that live in the land of the body, and in the body of the land; the interrelationships between past and present, between physical sensation and cultural condition, between myth and transformation, between self and other. Chronic illness, colonization, imagination, and ceremony sit at the centre of the invitation.

Playground – Ariel Martz-Oberlander

STANLEY PARK – SECOND BEACH PICNIC AREA (8901 Stanley Park Dr)
300-400PM

In our world and current political moment, we spend a lot of  time and energy on scarcity – the things we lack and what we are losing. This piece invites us to think about what we have in abundance – imagination, our child selves’ creativity, and connection to each other. Choose between three stations: Memory Lane, Tea Party and The Garden.
