Dance Cross-disciplinary
“To perform yourself inside a role is very strange. The clothes, the words, prod you into nameless areas and then you stretch them out in front of other people..." Chris Kraus, I Love Dick

NAC Commission

Laura Taler brings us on a site-specific cinematic journey through the NAC’s theatrical underworld where the art of crafting private dreams is made public. While conjuring a ninety-nine-year-old photo of Branislava Nijinska, Taler poses a series of questions about performance, the fallibility and concreteness of language, and the practice of turning the self inside out. Karanfil/Carnation was created with residency support from Ottawa Dance Directive.
