Live On The Drive: The Arrivals Co(Lab) Exchange

The Co(Lab) showing: An Indigenous Crossroads laboratory

The Arrivals Co(Lab) Exchange (Nov 16-22) is a multidisciplinary performance project exploring root cultural practices, ancestral embodiment and intercultural exchanges. Using Commercial Drive-based urban ink’s Personal Legacy Creation process, led by Diane Roberts, Heather Hermant, Danielle Smith and Rose Georgeson- 18 artists of Aboriginal & diverse backgrounds from across the country will plant the first seeds for an exciting new cross-disciplinary performance work. The Co(Lab) will culminate in an invitational showing on November 22nd at 7pm. The Co(Lab) performance outcome will explode with contemporary and historic collisions of language, ancestry, and ceremony. – Join in the post-showing talk back session to piece out the Co(Lab) creation-compounds.
Live On The Drive talked to Roberts and co-creators Mayahuel Tecozautla, a transplanted actor, dancer and choreographer from Mexico, now living in Toronto; Gwen Armstrong, a visual artist and nurse from Winnipeg, Chimwemwe Miller, a storyteller, musician, actor and parent, to discuss what the process was like for each of them.
 The event takes place November 22, 2009 at 7pm- 112 W. Hastings (W2 Bldg.) Vancouver BC
