About This Event

Vancouver's Subjects of History Collective (Laura June Albert, mia susan amir, Alexa Solveig Mardon, Veronique West) presents an interactive glimpse into early development of The time it takes me to get to you: a transdisciplinary, audience immersive performance exploring the connection between co-presence and the rise of contemporary fascism.

Research has shown that live performance can generate shared emotional and somatic experiences, but what are the ethical implications of this? How does this relate to fascism, which political scientists have described as an embodied realm of politics? Can live performance nurture our capacity to respond creatively to far right movements?
