Survival Walk, 2008

Survival Walk (screening video), 2008 (silent)

The 'Survival Walk' video mixes together footage from all three performances in Newfoundland & Labrador, moving poetically between all three locations (Corner Brook, Fogo, and St. John’s).  There is a longer 26 minute looping version for installation purposes.

Performance description: Two people in lab coats solemnly carried an improvised survival stretcher along local paths and trails.  The lab coats had the threaded outline of a red cross, as though a large badge had been removed. This performance was presented in three locations: Corner Brook (July 11, 2008), Fogo (August 3, 2008), and St. John’s (August 8, 2008), Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada.
