Our featured artist for the evening is Calgary's Sarah Murphy, who will be presenting her performance piece "when bill danced the war." In this fierce anti-war critique of colonization, Murphy uses words and music to bear witness to her father's experiences fighting in three wars as an indigenous man and american soldier. She will be accompanied by Toronto musician and performance artist Cheryl L'Hirondelle.
