Performance: Come Wash with Us - Seeking Home in Story
A collaborative, research-creation piece by Tasht Collective (Shahrzad Arshadi, Hourig Attarian, Khadija Baker, Kumru Bilici). The performance begins with collective members, all of whom are originally from the Middle East, exploring their personal and shared past and creating space to build community.
The one hour performance centers around the act of doing laundry with collective members weaving personal and family stories into the actions. The audience is invited to interact.
This performance is part of History Inhabits Each of Us, an exhibition by Concordia's Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling. It is being presented in conjunction with the Oral History Association's annual conference taking place at Concordia.
