Award-winning Canadian artist Laura Taler premieres KARANFIL/CARNATION, a performance film that blurs the lines between dance, song and storytelling, as part of the National Arts Centre #DanceForth digital series. KARANFIL/CARNATION is a site-specific journey through the National Arts Centre’s theatrical underworld where Taler explores the artist as subject. She invites us to peer into the world of creativity and performance art, making the private, public. While conjuring a ninety-nine-year-old photo of Polish ballerina Bronislava Nijinska by Man Ray, Taler poses a series of questions about performance, the fallibility and concreteness of language, and the practice of turning the self inside out.
