Under the bright yellow glow of SHED, time suspends for an alchemy of movement, sound, animate costumes and light. Featuring a collection of time-based moving portraits, SHED | knowing each other as different and the same holds space for the multiplicity and humanity of bodies of cultureยน. The immersive performance installation invites pause. A slowing down and an enlivening into presence for an otherworldly experience.

SHED is an invitation to notice the subtle ways our bodies perceive, receive and relate to an โ€œotherโ€. To witness the assumptions and imaginings that consciously and/or unconsciously colour our experience of difference. To remember that every body inhabits an internal life as vivid and complex as our own.
The collection of choreographies by Tzeng includes a duet created and performed with experimental musician FOONYAP, and five solo portraits created for, with and danced by Cindy Ansah, Cory Beaver, Kara Bullock, Alรจn Martel and Mpoe Mogale. Sound, costumes and light manifest as energetic extensions of the body, spirit and land. The design elements of each work emerged from tender and nurturing exchanges with sound designers FOONYAP, Jiajia Li, Num and Darren Young, costume collaborator Alison Yanota, sodium light designer Nicolas Brunet-Beaulieu and lighting designer Jonathan Kim.
Each portrait draws from the intimate and vast inner landscapes of the performersโ€™ embodied values, memories and lived experiences. Each exists as a testimony of the beauty and resilience of bodies of culture.

From Pam: I replace the language and idea of โ€œPeople of colourโ€ with โ€œBodies of Culture” as reclamation of the inherent wisdom of the body and the pieces of the experiences of racialized people that have been stolen, stripped away, and invisibilized by white body supremacy. Bodies of Culture comes from my practice in Somatic Abolition guided by the work of author, therapist and racialized trauma specialist Resmaa Menakem.
SHED is made possible with the support of Dancersโ€™ Studio West Artist in Residence Program, The New Gallery 2022 Main Space Program, Canada Council for the Arts, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Calgary Arts Development, Calgary Animated Objects Society.
