Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery

2125 Stanley Street/Traces

Dahlia Nayar, Margaret Sunghe Paek, and Loren Kiyoshi Dempster

February 9, 10, 11 (performances); February 17–March 26 (exhibition)

An evocative dance performance and subsequent multimedia exhibition that jointly explore issues and images of hybridity across generations of immigrant families. The artists note that their work “aims to invite the audience into a home that unfolds through movement, sound, and intimate exchange, a home that is both familiar and yet cannot exactly be located.”

2125 Stanley Street is presented Thursday and Friday, February 9 and 10, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, February 11, at 2 p.m. at the Thorne. Performance tickets ($8–$10) are available through the Redfern Arts Center Box Office. Admission to the Traces exhibition, and to all Thorne exhibitions, is free. 2125 Stanley Street/Traces is organized by the Redfern Arts Center and the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery.
