SIBLING RIVERS is a live intermedia performance installation that bridges three sites––Perth, Western Australia; Los Angeles, California; and Calgary, Alberta––through a dialogical exploration of the rivers that run through the heart of each city, carrying the social histories of each site.  Experienced collectively, in dialogue within the defined space and time of the performance (1 hour), these embedded/embodied histories call forth transnational themes of colonialism, cultural erasure, and economic conflict.
