What: Join Dr. Philip J Deloria, Professor of History at Harvard University, for a keynote address on the comparative and connective histories of Indigenous peoples in a global context.

Deloria will offer a close reading of Sully’s work through the lenses of modernism, Dakota women’s aesthetics and the American Indian politics of the 1930s. An open discussion, facilitated by Karrmen Crey, will follow.

PALMYRA

What: In this prizewinning piece, the set is almost bare and broken crockery is the main prop; PALMYRA may seem slight at first glance, but it’s about as rich in implication as one could ask for. The situation can be described bluntly and simply: two men are onstage, and one of them has a plate while the other does not. From this, conflict emerges that ranges from the comical to the brutal. The audience is drawn into the work in surprising and provocative ways. Part of PuSh Festival.

Time: 8 pm
Where: Performance Works – 1218 Cartwright Street, Granville Island
