About this event

10.24.17:00

Piano Burning

Presented with Full Circle: First Nations Performance

With artists Orene Askew, Russell Wallace, Sempúlyan Gonzales, Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa, Eowynn Enquist

NEW DATE October 24, 5pm

Mountain View Cemetery - gather at Celebration Centre

Rising from the ashes of this summer’s fire ban, QAF and Full Circle: First Nations Performance will reignite our Piano Burning event on Sunday, October 24 at Mountain View Cemetery. Curated by SD Holman and Margo Kane, Annea Lockwood’s infamous work — where QAF veteran Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa performs a piano as it burns to ashes — is re-envisioned through the lens of historically banned First Nations fire ceremonies and contemporary global warming of unprecedented levels.

Margo Kane and Full Circle First Nations Performance ground this event with cultural knowledge and a focus on Two-Spirit artists: Sempúlyan, who will speak about the spiritual role of fire to communicate with ancestors; Russell Wallace, who has composed a new piece for the occasion; designer Evan Ducharme, who created Iwaasa's fire-proof ball gown; and Squamish Nation councillor Orene Askew (aka DJ O Show), who will set the piano alight.

Bring a chair, bring a blanket, and dress for the weather!

Note: this event was rescheduled from its original date of August 8, 2021. Tickets purchased for the original date will be honoured for the Oct 24 performance.

Organizer Queer Arts Festival/Sum Gallery

Organizer of Piano Burning **NEW DATE**

 

The Pride in Art Society produces, presents and exhibits with a curatorial vision that favours challenging, thought-provoking work that pushes boundaries and initiates dialogue,  through the Queer Arts Festival (QAF), an annual, professional, artist-run, multidisciplinary festival at the Roundhouse and at the SUM Gallery, located in the Sun Wah building in the heart of Vancouver’s Chinatown.

 

We work on the unceded territory of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwəta? (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples. To these host nations, we say thank you for your stewardship of this land since time immemorial. We recognize their sovereignty, as there are no treaties on these lands, and we are committed to building right relations based on respect and consent.
