“Who’s Afraid” is a performance piece and it is installation art. It is discursive and immersive, presented as a single subject which can be experienced from many points of view. “Who’s Afraid” questions the boundaries between truth and fiction, between power and control, between art and subject, between artist and audience. Accessible, grounded in reality, while also indulging in the characters’ fantasies and imaginations. As the relationship between audience and performance is questioned, so too is the role of the audience itself, culminating in new and enveloping way to experience a story, to experience life.
Previously workshopped as “Lethal and Young” in Montreal and Toronto, and as “Who’s Afraid” in Montreal last year, Andrew Jamieson’s “Who’s Afraid” returns to Montreal this May. Directed by creator Andrew Jamieson, the performance is the first presentation of it’s kind for Godberd. The piece runs from May 17-25 at Oro.
