Naked Ugly Dancing

Overweight, scarred, ageing white woman ugly dances naked with improvised collapses and conversation. Tasha Diamant is a performance artist, cancer survivor, and mother. She experiences the normalization of brutality in our culture as traumatizing. Part healing ritual, part angry protest. Awkwardness and vulnerability as art. With a backdrop picturing her Stage 4 ovarian tumour. Participation optional.

The Gift

The Gift is about a boy growing up in a First Nations family struggling with violence, alcoholism, dysfunction and tragedy. In order to survive, John makes himself as invisible as possible and doesn’t speak. The performance communicates his story without dialogue and invites the audience to explore their own stories. the Gift is about reconciliation, healing, finding your voice and celebration.
