THE DROWNING GIRLS | May 13 - June 11, 2022

Bessie.  Alice.  Margaret.  All three women thought George Joseph Smith was the man of their dreams.  Now all three are dead.  The Drowning Girls is a lyrical exploration of a trio of murdered wives who gather evidence against their murderous husband by reliving the shocking events leading up to their deaths. One Yellow Rabbit Co-Founders Blake Brooker and Denise Clarke lead an incredible creative team in bringing this macabre fantasia to the Vertigo stage.

Join internationally renowned artist Adad Hannah, as he speaks about his artwork, in particular his project The Raft of the Medusa: Saint-Louis, currently on view at Glenbow. Since 2001 Adad Hannah has been working on his series Stills; silent videos that exist at the intersection of performance, photography, and video. Based on the 19th-century practice of tableaux vivants, Hannah’s videos, photographs, and installations look at how we perform as spectators, and how our gaze can be a constructive one as we try to make sense of ourselves and the world around us.
