The Weave

This video/performance triptych addresses the issue of cultural convergences and the individual identity. A woman of mixed descent stands between both the English and Native cultures searching for a resolution to bring these two groups together. She carries with her, the struggles of both ancestral cultures. These nations’s behaviour negatively affect the young woman as she cries out with anguish. She is their future generation, dealing with the residue of colonialism. In time, the two ethnic groups learn to understand and respect one another. The girl learns to weave both cultures together while finding balance in herself. Her spirit can now rest.
