URBAN CLOTH PROJECT for 11th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2014 in Vancouver on Nov 9 2014

November 9, 2014 Leave a comment

URBAN CLOTH PROJECT: Terroir

Sunday November 9, 1pm – 3pm
Hastings Urban Farm, 58 W. Hastings
Free

“What fibre lies at my feet? How do I name it, gather and process, so cloth can spin from my fi ngertips, and cover my skin. Where do I begin?”

Join the Urban Cloth Project research artists, dancer and choreographer Mirae Rosner, cedar/fibre Squamish spinner and weaver Tracy Williams, community eco-artist Sharon Kallis, and community participants, as they perform a work-in-progress gestural dance. Through the dance they share what they have learned so far about growing plants, foraging, harvesting and processing flax for linen.

The Urban Cloth Project weaves together First Nation gathering traditions, early settler agricultural methods and contemporary environmental art practices, through shared investigations for urban cloth production. They’re exploring connections between labour, land and community as the growing season has inspired their dances.
