You And Me Right Here Right Now: Theatre In The Post-Cinema Age

9 December 2014 7pm

Mercer Union is delighted to announce that Jordan Tannahill will be the fourth guest of our fORUM critical conversation series, a monthly series of talks, lectures, interviews, screenings and performances at the gallery. Please join us on Tuesday December 9th for a performance lecture by Jordan Tannahill featuring Bridget Moser.

Tracing through the histories of cinema and theatre, Tannahill will explore representation, resistance and experimentation tackling the widely touted claim that “film has killed theatre” in an irreverent yet considered performance lecture featuring performer Bridget Moser.

Jordan Tannahill is a writer, performance creator, and filmmaker. His work has been presented at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Toronto International Film Festival, and the British Film Institute. He is currently an artist-in-residence at Canadian Stage, Tarragon Theatre, and Buddies in Bad Times Theatre. He runs Videofag, a hub for experimental/queer performance and video in Toronto with William Christopher Ellis. Tannahill was awarded the Governor General’s Award for theatre in 2014 and his book Theatre of the Unimpressed will be published by Coach House Press in Spring 2015. Tannahill lives and works in Toronto.
