Greed / REsolve
June 27 @ 7:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00pm, repeating until June 28, 2017
with Full Circle First Nations Performance
Commerce, greed, and disenfranchisement are key themes in these two paired dance works by Byron Chief-Moon and JP Longboat.
The work is a themed based examination of today’s exploitative stock market and crippling corporate greed. This work is a juxtaposition of Traditional Knowledge and Values that maintain a living harmony with the natural environment and provides dynamic balance through “taking only what is needed”. The actions of corporate and personal greed carry over and compound biospheric destruction effecting the living balance of the planet. This work layers First Nations world views on the dissonance of agency that takes the resources from our territories and poisons the environment around us.
REsolve layers First Nations world views on the dissonance of agency as it addresses issues of de-colonization of self and homeland. Through an awakening of the individual confronting an authoritarian system set on keeping us in a increasingly dependant matrix. Resolve is taking control of your own destiny by exposing the hollow lies from leadership and challenging our present economic slavery and physiological bondage. These are transcendent moments of realization and awakening, where one has no choice but to stand up for freedom, and mobilize the ability to act and (self)determine.
Artistic Collaborators: Byron Chief-Moon, Jerry Longboat, Olivia C. Davies, Luis G Canton Rocher.

QAF takes place on the traditional, unceded territory of the Coast Salish people, in particular the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwəta? (Tsleil-Waututh) nations. We recognize their sovereignty, as there are no treaties on these lands, and we are dedicated to building a new relationship between our nations based on respect and consent.
