Bird bones-40th Annual Loon Count

 Registration is closed for this event
An informal showing of work created by Bearnstow Retreat Artists, Kiera Bono and Ella Dawn W-S. This event will Follow the Loon count and is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Bird bones/40th Annual Loon Count, which will attend to Loon movements, sounds, bird-made structures (like nests), and the bodily structures of Loons to Parker Pond during the Annual Loon Count, to the human-made structures of Bearnstow, and to birds and bird-made structures on Wabanaki land and water. Through multisensorial scores and choreographies of care, we will find bone-level kinship with birds (especially loons) and engage with the access barriers they face due to ongoing legacies of colonial violence and land/water theft.

This collaborative interdisciplinary performance project, created by Kiera Bono and Ella Dawn W-S, is the second piece in a trilogy of choreographic work that moves through questions regarding disability, external structures, and internal structures. The first piece (entitled Bird bones/"You need some impact in there" and created at The Croft Residency in July 2022) attended to bird movements on Waganakising Odawa land and water.

We will serve Coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be available (including GF and Vegetarian options). Free and Open to the Public! Support the artists!
