Dramatic Arts presents: In Transit: Artistic Interventions in Precarious Times

featuring Dr. Kerr Mesner, Arcadia University (performer) with
Dr. Stephen Low (Moderator, Discussant and Talkback Facilitator)

Thursday, March 15, 2018 7:00-9:00 pm, in the MIW THEATRE

In Transit: Artistic Interventions in Precarious Times is a one-person performance piece, combining multimedia, live theatrical performance, and audience engagement to create an evocative and thought provoking dramatic experience. This autoethnographic theatrical piece explores the intersections of queer identities, Christianity’s contributions to antiqueer
violence, and the challenges of embodying transgender identities within our current political contexts. Mesner weaves a narrative arc between current live theatrical performances from his 2017 piece, In Transit and multimedia excerpts from the filmic
version of his 2014 play, Intervention, that was part of his doctoral dissertation.

This performance will be of interest to scholars, graduate students, practitioners, and activists working in such areas as arts based educational research, performance studies, transgender and queer studies, religion/theology, and anti-oppressive education.

All events take place at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts
15 Artists’ Common, St Catharines ON L2R 0B5
A free community event!
Tickets and registration not required. Limited parking available.

Contact Dr. Joe Norris jnorris@brocku.ca for more information.
