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.
