Description

What do you do if you’re a university theatre professor and you find yourself working with increasingly depressed, isolated, and anxious students? What do you do if you feel like a ‘canary in the coal mine’ of institutional learning?

Performer and Professor Kenney created Canary, a show combining the poetic and imaginative possibilities of physical theatre, object theatre, and audience participation with the “Ted Talk” aesthetic. Performed with percussionist Andrew Stauffer, Canary is a celebration of the power of live performance, investigating embodiment as it relates to human evolution, to learning, to the wild, to mindfulness… and to our tribal proclivities. Kenney takes the audience on a forensic romp across human history, and a poetic dive into the “here and now”.  

Artist Talkback & Discussion Panel

After the performance, Denise Kenney is joined by a host of artists, educators, and academics to explore the themes explored in Canary. On stage with Denise will be Neil Cadger, Astrida Neimanis, Julie Oliver, Kate Twa, Tracy Ross, and Vanessa Yaremchuk.

 

Canary is a celebration of the power of live performance, embodied flawlessly by Denise Kenney. In this tour de force, Canary needs to know if we’ve forgotten how important it is to stay wild? It’s a matter of life or death.
