man and woman running away across a field in Victorian underwear

Empty room with one red wall

The starting point for the performance is an investigation of the stock market - traditionally a place where probability, ritual and intuition collide.  Increasingly, it has become the domain of algorithmic approaches, where decisions are made at speeds far beyond human capacity to evaluate or intervene.  Eventually the scope of the project will expand to include other aspects of contemporary capitalist culture where algorithms are having an increasingly deterministic effect, where algorithms approach mythic status and shape all manner of relationships, notions of value and thought.

Poster for From Solitary to Solidarity

uWaterloo Drama presents From Solitary to Solidarity: Unravelling the Ligatures of Ashley Smith, a new project exploring issues of mental health in the context of the troubling story of Ashley Smith, a teenager who died at Grand Valley Institution for Women in 2007. The inquest on the circumstances surrounding her incarceration and eventual death recently declared her death a homicide.
