Performing Memories IV

 

Mercredi, mars 11, 2020 - 15:00 to 17:00

Performance by Zeina Allouche

A Conversation with Survivor’s Stories
Throughout long engagement journey, I witnessed many wars and associated social challenges., I engaged with displaced, refugees, and those abducted, raped, and tortured children forced into separation and transracial adoptions. It is now, when I am an immigrant in Canada, that I am learning how to unfold my stories. Unfortunately, such an exercise entails demystification that establishes an ongoing and still outstanding question whether my experiences have helped to change the life of others, or it was about a survival escape. This is a participatory performative presentation that addresses the challenge of going public with stories of survivors of atrocities while asking questions about the ethics of telling stories of violence and losses. The dilemma of self-care will be visited at times of escalating political and systemic racism. The performance will attempt to offer a platform to explore safety while engaging with storytelling.

Venue / Lieu: ALLab (LB-1042)
