Feminist Heritage in Movements confronts the narrative function of historical discourse with the arbitrary persistence of the memories of the artworks that form its repertoire. Drawing upon reminiscences of La Centrale’s members and from its archival documents, this research-creation project is a performative reanimation of diverse movement-based materials presented in the course of La Centrale’s 40-year history. A choreography weaving disparate gestures, movements and performative actions gleaned from La Centrale’s repertoire will ensue.

The performance will be developed within the gallery space. At the end of the residency, the public will be invited to join in the movement by taking part in the tapestry of gesture-memories drawn from La Centrale’s repertoire.

Trained in dance and physical theatre, she has performed in various venues and festivals in Quebec and the United States, as well as in France, Spain, England and Mexico. Over the past decade, her artistic and academic research has addressed a broad range of visual and performative practices tied to the field of medicine. Amongst them, Tamar curated Auto/Pathographies, a group exhibition shown at the Kunstpavillon (Innsbruck) and at OBORO (Montréal), which was documented in a catalogue published by Sagamie édition d’art in 2014.
