Performance Notes

× CRONE, the latest durational performance by Tanya Mars looks at how superstition and myth intertwine. In keeping with her recent performance strategy, Mars will create an atmospheric work that combines visually rich layers of spectacular, satirical feminist imagery with light and sound.

A revered matriarch of the Canadian performance art community, it is fitting that Mars offers the conclusion to the year-long epic MONOMYTHS journey, illuminating Stage 14: The Return Home.

CRONE by Tanya Mars is part of the third and final installment of FADO’s year-long epic MONOMYTHS series. Other works include: Rise and Fall by Serena Lee (MONOMYTHS: Stage 10, Theatre Centre, February 15); 2894: Refusal of MONOMYTHs by claude wittmann (MONOMYTHS: Stage 11, Theatre Centre, February 16), Silver & Gold by Nao Bustamante (MONOMYTHS: Stage 12, Theatre Centre, February 17), and Staceyann Chin (MONOMYTHS: Stage 13, Rhubarb Festival @ Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, February 18).
