Mountain View Cemetery / Vancouver
Rising from the ashes of this summer’s fire ban, Queer Arts Festival and Full Circle: First Nations Performance will reignite our Piano Burning event on Sunday, October 24 at Mountain View Cemetery. Curated by SD Holman and Margo Kane, Annea Lockwood’s infamous work — where acclaimed virtuoso Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa performs a piano as it burns to ashes — is re-envisioned through the lens of historically banned Indigenous fire rituals and contemporary global warming.
