Coral Short was born on a beautiful island off the west coast of Canada and was raised by a lively river in the countryside where her eccentric family lived off the land. Melding nightlife with fine art, her practice casts magic spells on her audiences enabling them to understand that many fantastical realities can and do happen at any given moment. Her group work ranges from intimate collaborations to large scale interactive performances with over 500 people. Short has many beloved people, communities, and locations that she calls home. Short and her countless projects move at the speed of light; ironically she is the most still when she travels. She spends a fair amount of time dispersing her magic around the globe – in the air, on railroad tracks and highways. She lives on the edge of enchantment.
