Adrian Stimson’s performance will examine grief, the emotional suffering when someone dies and how that death means that a part of you has died. For the Blackfoot, death is an all too common occurrence, natural deaths have been replaced by often tragic circumstances, it feels like we are in a constant state of mourning. The performance will include actions that express ideas of shock, anger, depression and acceptance.
