Taking place at Inverlea Park, with a bridge present in the background, three duets occur. Working with pairs of two artists from different artistic disciplines, different cultural backgrounds and different sexual orientations – who have been living together during the pandemic – each duet uses the metaphor of how a river flows and changes to portray how relationships also shift over time.
Aria Evans is a queer, Toronto-based, award winning interdisciplinary artist working in dance; creation, performance and film. Aria draws on their experiences with Afro-Indigenous, settler heritage as well as their BFA (2012) to capture meaningful social and cultural themes through their interactive art. Collaboration is the departure point for the work that Aria creates with their company Political Movement.
