American-born artist Ellie Ga presents a narrative-based performance that combines memory with a vast array of documents both created and appropriated, based on a six-month residency on the Tara, a research sailboat frozen into the ice of the North Pole, purposely drifting to gather scientific data. Ga superimposes live storytelling, recorded sound, and still and moving images to conjure up the terms and rituals of daily life in the Arctic night.
Forum Lounge is a series of free, performance-based events that reflect CAF’s mission to sustain and encourage the artistic process by presenting art in the form of exceptional music, dance, video, and other multi-media to our community. The series encourages experiences with unique performance pieces ranging from the theatrical to the avant-garde that are normally found only in large metropolitan venues.
