To See Or Not To See

To See or Not to See is a unique one-woman performance by writer and theatre artist Ruth Bieber. This play is a powerful story of wounding, overcoming, courage and healing. Employing the circular motif of shamanic quest as frame, Ruth Bieber’s first play is full of insight about what it’s like to have a vision disability as a child, a woman, a mother and a professional – and about the more hidden disabilities of those around her.

Interdisciplinary artist PrOphecy Sun will accompany Bieber with an opening sound performance, composed in response to Bieber’s story.

Ruth Bieber holds an MA in Education from the University of Calgary, with a specialization in Rehabilitation and Theatre. Prior to obtaining this degree, her professional focus was as a Counselling Therapist, working with clients with disabilities; often more than a single disability. In the early 1990’s, she founded InsideOut Theatre which was a testament to the power of performance for people with a wide range of mixed abilities.

PrOphecy Sun is an interdisciplinary performance artist. Her practice threads together both concious and unconscious choreographies, sound, and environment to create exploratory works that invoke deep body memory.

This event is part of the Capitol’s OFF-SITE progreamming, and is co-hosted by Oxygen Art Centre.
