Dates to come
In this participative performance, An-Laurence Higgins tells us stories of her adoption, from her birth in China to her arrival in Quebec. The performance personifies a collective memory belonging to those adopted in China under the family planning policy, better known in the West as the one-child policy.
In a room filled with artifacts from this collective memory, the public can meet the artist, seated at a table in the center of the room, and listen to her stories. Through media creation and direct contact with the public, An-Laurence seeks to solubilize her current identity with her forgotten past. A delicate and modern reflection emerges of the complex identities of adopted people.
