Performance | Oh Heroine How I Love You!: Modern Play Passing Through Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights


75 min. Writer, Director: Callie Nestleroth. Performer: Sara Page. Meet with Cathy Earnshaw in her world from Emily Bronte's classic tale Wuthering Heights, and be taken by her on a journey that goes beyond the confines of her book. Whether from the many film adaptations, or Kate Bush's singular song, Cathy and Heathcliff are infamous characters. But do we ever consider the effect they have on those who learn their story? Oh Heroine How I Love You! transports you into the book and onto the Moors, to voyage with Cathy in this interactive one-woman show. A ghostly character, Cathy's grasp of her reality is fraught, and as she catapults between worlds the audience is taken along for the ride. You feel as if you are reading a book that has come to life around you and in being immersed in her world are called upon to assist this character who is lost in her own adaptations. In learning who Cathy is, we learn who Emily Bronte is, and unlock this enigmatic author with questions about feminist agency and the ownership one has to tell their own story. No intermission, please be prepared to walk and interact with the performer.

Opening Reception | L&D Motel: New Art


From the artist: "...that this world has things that double not halve, that the cut is such a smooth criminal, that love’s holographic, that touch is impossible but we do it anyway, that a bunch of things operate at our incapacity beyond translation, that capacity is so overrated, that desire is abundant - that desire is abundance, sharing doubles, that some things get bigger the more you take away like holes, debt, dependency..." -- Constantina Zavitsanos

Book Signing | Re-visions: Staged Photos of Growing Up


In 1975, while driving her car in Manhattan, Marcia Resnick became embroiled in a car accident, and her entire life flashed before her. When she awoke in the hospital, she began to think about all of the events which led to her being there. She began to write ideas and draw pictures considering her life thus far, in preparation for creating a new book. In 1978, her poignant and ironic autobiographical book of staged photographs about female adolescence, Re-visions, was first published by The Coach House Press in Toronto. Swiss art-book publisher Edition Patrick Frey will launch the republication of Re-visions. Resnick will be signing copies of her book.
