2125 Stanley Street by Dahlia Nayar

Wriston Art Gallery
2125 Stanley Street is a performance exploring notions of home. Choreographer Dahlia Nayar collaborates with dancer Margaret Sunghe Paek and composer Loren Kiyoshi Dempster in a sound, visual and movement excavation of the artists' own cultural hybridity, investigating the transfer and loss of meaning between generations pre- and post- immigration. Stanley Street is highly adaptable to alternative spaces (from grange halls to galleries), inviting the audience into a makeshift "home" of initially recognizable domestic objects and daily tasks that become reinvented through layers of virtuosic movement and a multilingual electronic soundscape with live cello.
