Monthly Actions 
Vulnerable Embodied Performance Art / AnthropoScenes
In public spaces.

Why?

The world is currently undergoing a man-made mass extinction event
The Extinction Symbol was created to help raise awareness of
the urgent need for change in order to address the extinction crisis.
  • To "be the change"
  • A cultural antidote
  • To share / express / create space for vulnerability and pain
  • To draw the parallel between vulnerable souls / vulnerable bodies / vulnerable planet
  • To stand in some solidarity with those who are most vulnerable
  • Allowing vulnerability improves communication
  • To hold ourselves in some accountability for the atrocities our culture perpetrates and perpetuates
  • "The medium is the message"
Ugly Dancing on the Street
  • #uglydance4life
  • Dancing the ugly out of myself and my culture
  • A way to survive Stage 4 cancer
  • Healing ritual, angry protest
  • I process pain on behalf of myself and others
    Ugly Dancing in front of the BC Legislature.
AnthropoScenes
  • I was part of a short-lived collective, the AnthropoScene Collective
    AnthropoScene during the Women's March in reaction to Trump's inauguration, January 2017. 

Vulnerability Vigils
  • I created Vulnerability Vigils and stood naked in public for about an hour, at least once a month (except during illness), since January 2012 until November 2016
The first coinciding Vulnerability Vigil in a separate city! Vancouverites, November 2014.
