“The Yellow Umbrella—An Unfinished Conversation” is a performance that involves twelve performers engaging with yellow umbrellas. The umbrella is a symbol of protection and resistance. This performance seeks an intersection where aesthetics and politics ignite each other, exploring how symbolic and situational behaviors impact on our perception in regards to specific social movements and activism. It is relevant to open conversations about how to transform social and political landscapes through embodied gestures, examining relationships between the citizens and the place they live, between what they have lost and what they have gained in social political transformations.
participant performers: Liliana Argumedo, Catherine Laframboise Desjardins, Kelsey Duffy, Alida Esmail, Lucy Fandel, Maggy Flynn, Brittney Canda Gering, Maggie O’Neil, Kim L Rouchdy, Natalie Schneck, Eryn Tempest, and Emilie van der Waals
