Im­age Althea Thauberger (col­lec­tion de Matthew Far­fan 2012)

char­ac­ter­is­tics along the way. In the form of il­lus­trated sto­ry­telling and at the cross­roads of the real and the imag­i­nary, she hopes to re­veal dur­ing this per­for­mance the in­ti­mate at­tributes of this bor­der re­gion. Her artis­tic prac­tice en­gages in in­ter­dis­ci­plinary col­lab­o­ra­tions which ren­der the in­vis­i­ble tan­gi­ble and the for­eign fa­mil­iar through sev­eral artis­tic medi­ums - draw­ing, per­for­mance, video, in­stal­la­tion, edition or cu­ra­to­rial un­der­tak­ings. Althea Thauberger’s (Van­cou­ver) per­for­mance will fo­cus on the his­tory of the Abe­naki, a First Nations peo­ple who, long be­fore Canada and the United States were a twin­kle in Europe’s eye, oc­cu­pied an im­mense ter­ri­tory cov­er­ing north­ern New Eng­land up to the south­ern edge of the Mar­itimes. The artist will film a per­for­mance in the Haskell Opera House, im­mor­tal­iz­ing an en­counter be­tween two Abe­nakis, one from Quebec, the other from Ver­mont. The pub­lic will be in­vited to take part in the per­for­mance by be­ing filmed as mem­bers of the au­di­ence. The per­form­ers’ read­ings will breathe a few mo­ments’ of life into a lan­guage whose prac­tice was once out­lawed. Thauberger has in­ter­na­tion­ally pro­duced and ex­hib­ited work typ­i­cally in­volv­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion with groups or com­mu­ni­ties that re­sult in per­for­mances, films, pho­to­graphs, videos, au­dio record­ings, and pub­li­ca­tions.
