Rehearsing for MAG’s Meet in the Middle Symposium

Dr. Kathryn Ricketts (dance/accordian) and Dr. Gale Russell (bagpipes) with Ian Campbell (media artist) and Ken Wilson (speaker) rehearsing for the “Meet in the Middle | Stations of Migration and Memory Between Art and Film Symposium” that will be held at Mackenzie Art Gallery Nov. 2-5. They will perform Lucky’s Performance Bricolage, an excerpt from Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, on November 4 at 4:15–4:45 p.m. There will be a workshop after the performance for anyone wanting to participate.

From the Symposium Programme: Kathryn Ricketts will perform a particular rendering of Lucky’s monologue from Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. This structured improvisation will hinge on fractured text from the play through her unique performative style, folding dance, theatre and voice into a poetic collage of moving images supported by a media artist and bag piper. In the context of the symposium, performer and audience move from Waiting for Godot to notions of liminality and migration and finally to the idea of meeting in the middle from disparate locations.
