The Poetry of Performing the Ecology of Place


  • Bronwyn Preece


Abstract: Performing the Ecology of Place: Embodying an Eco-Cultural 'Living History' on Lasqueti Island/Xwe'etay[i] involved the creation of a one-time cross-generational, outdoor, community performance event that endeavored to allow for a deeper understanding of the relationships locals held with the place and culture in existence on the unique ‘off-the-grid’ island of Lasqueti/Xwe'etay, in the area now recognized by many as British Columbia, Canada.
