Please join us for a participatory performance

from 1:00pm - 2:30pm

on Saturday, October 1, 2016





(((Justice))) by Amelia Winger-Bearskin and Eamon O’Connor is a participatory performance and live-scripting project in which participants are provided with prompts which function as stage directions. Inspired by Robert’s Rules of Order and a set of common rhetorical/argumentative devices used in academic and activist meetings, these prompts guide participants through a conversation which operates in both explicit (procedural) and implicit (political, ideological, libidinal) registers.


(((Justice))) seeks to reproduce and re-contextualize communitarian discourses with the aim of flattening the hierarchies that govern collective conversations and allowing these unspoken regulations to become raw material for experimentation and play. This performance is inspired by Amelia’s work as an artist, activist, and academic, and Eamon’s experience working in the criminal justice system, as well as his time spent living in various intentional communities.

About the Play -

In the distant future, Black and Asian populations are virtually extinct due to genetic manipulations, viruses, and biochemical warfare. To rehabilitate the genetic discourse of its people, the United Continent of North America has started the Minority Recovery Project. When a verified ethnic child is born, it is taken away from its white parents and placed in the Minority Recovery Project.  Pearl Halston was one of those children, and every day, her mother fights to get her back.
