Bringing together two old friends, STRIKE/THRU is an interdisciplinary encounter between indigenous visual artist Nadia Myre and settler theatre artist Johanna Nutter. In videoconference, six members of the audience are invited to reconstruct a recorded conversation between culturally-mixed people while the two artists use each other to explore the identity constructs raised by the verbatim. A live impetus for conciliation and reconciliation, this work speaks to the current climate around Indigenous/Settler relations.

This project received financial support from the MAI Alliance Program (2016-2017) and this event is an excerpt of the performance that was supposed to be presented at MAI in May 2020, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
