  • The "Yellow Peril" and Vancouver Race Riots of the eraly 20th century... domestic gay violence, and racist assault in the 90 s...
    Four video monitors display tape loops of public and private episodes of heterosexism and racism, while a duet by two male dancers sutures together interviews on fag bashing, gay domestic violence, racist attack, and moments in the colonization of British Columbia.
    In an epic, polyphonic narrative, this installation makes important parallels between race, queer identity, and the construction of masculinity, wherein violence secures the identity of the masculine self.
