In 1738 in Québec City, Esther Brandeau, a Jewish woman, is accused of posing as a Christian man. Heather Hermant*’s *ribcage: this wide passage combines video, theatre, and poetry, set to a live score by violinist Jaron Freeman-Fox, to tell the story of the first Jewish immigrant to set foot in Canada. This collection of archival documents and haunting video installations is a bold and little-known Canadian foundation tale.
