Via the intersection of performance and plastic arts practice, Antonija Livingstone – a Canadian dancer, performer and choreographer – and Nadia Lauro – a French visual artist who works with contemporary dance, stage a queer symposium for rare presence & endangered practice. 

From these social gatherings emerge a cyclical score for a series of action and object études. For the duration of a storm, we take refuge together in a fabricated nomadic habitat. Like visit to a chimeric library and its caretaker kin :
A wyrd assembly of friends, and  guest artists and  creatures welcome an intimate public surround, to  join forces to tend to and  reflect upon the dissident potential of the slow, the polyphonic and other unfashionable gestures.
