This will be my third visit to the City of Calgary. My first encounter was when, as a young child, I was driven there from Winnipeg by my Mother and her boyfriend, on a vacation to see my aunt and uncle. My second experience was, as a vagrant hippy teenager, briefly hitch-hiking through town on a road trip to attend a party in Vancouver.
For M:ST, I offer three short vignettes re-creating these memories.

His ground breaking collaborative partnerships in Randy & Berenicci enjoy a rare precedent of accolade and influence. He is currently Executive Director and Curator of Vancouver’s LIVE Performance Art Biennale; and is researching new global performance art manifestations, movements, and networks.
