Taste the Source (while supplies last)
From the archives (2006 - present) Video footage & Photo series. A freshwater mermaid offers a taste of her treasured collection of rivers and lakes from various regions of Quebec. Some water samples are out of stock, some taste like blueberry roots and rocks. A rare experience as the commodification of water accelerates and sources of clean water become harder to find. These performances address water at first from an emotional and gustatory place, and then allow the audience to form their own response to the broader social and political issues found within. Archives to be included in the following forthcoming publication: Thinking with Water. Eds. C. Chen, J. MacLeod and A. Neimanis.
