Upintheair Theatre Presents Mia Susan Amir's World Premiere
How is the individual and collective body haunted by socio-political events? An immersive experience.
The words fascia and fascism share an etymological root, the Latin word, fasces, which means, “bundle.”
A bold melding of immersive multidisciplinary performance, intimate personal narrative, and theory, Geologic Formations explores the present-unseen: the way socio-political events haunt the individual and collective body.
Curious about her experience of the present-unseen – invisible chronic illness, and the invisibilized intergenerational impacts of war, attempted genocide and displacement – mia susan amir, with collaborators, creates an interactive experience that crosses and collapses time and geography; to talk to ghosts; to decode what shapes our perceptions; to face the limits and possibilities of empathy.
Historically inspired, Geologic Formations is a response to the contemporary rise of fascism.
Geologic Formations has been developed with the generous support of the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity's 2018 Playwrights Lab.
