Material Life - showing on the street
Created by interdisciplinary artist, Lois Brown Material Lift is a publically-engaged research-performance that explores relationally between material and us, as we wrap,
push, and pull a huge piece of zip cloth through a street into a theatre space. It floats as we are submerged, resurface and immerse ourselves in its white clouds.

Milltown - showing at Our Pleasure
A young woman replays a conversation between her and friends her own age as they sit drinking in the woods, talking about where they come from, why they’re here, and, ultimately, what drives them to believe they have to leave. An introspective on Corner Brook’s identity (or lack thereof), history, culture, and how the things we don’t want to talk about always come back to bite us in the end.
Dialogue On Loop - showing at Brewed Awakening

Corner Brook, Here We Are - showing on the street
A performance piece which creates large scale gestural drawings in acrylic latex. The drawings will be inspired by who attends CBNuit, being themselves and blending into a colourful crowd.
Plant Matter - showing on the street
A body of work made as a part of an artist residency with the MUN Botanical Garden. The work considers the arbitrary systems and hierarchies surrounding the naming and organization of plant-life, and the fantastical potential of nature left uncontrolled by humans.
