How to Build a Fire by Kerri Flannigan

August 3 @ 7:30 pm9:00 pm


Saturday August 3 & Sunday August 4 | 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Intrepid Studio | 2-1609 Blanshard St

Co-presented by Legacy Art Gallery and Impulse Theatre, How To Build a Fire is a performance accompanied by projections, sound and live-narration. Connections to nature, changing climates and wildfire are explored through the relationship between Kerri, the performer, and their father Mike, a fire scientist. This performance asks questions about what kind of relationships we should have with each other, with fire, and with the land around us.

Kerri Flannigan (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist, performer, and educator currently based on Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ Territories (Victoria, BC), who experiments with methods of research and storytelling through installation, video, and performance. With a background as an experimental animator and zine-maker, Flannigan is interested in investigating different ways of creating and performing narratives, working to create a framework through which the personal is critically connected to a wider sphere of context.

This presentation takes place at the Intrepid Studio (1609 Blanshard), a 45 seat venue with wheelchair accessibility and two gender neutral washrooms. Non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be available.
