The False Creek Bride was a multi-disciplinary performance inside a domed structure resembling a large white dress during the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver. The audience was guided on a mythical journey through the story of Serena, a magical fish captured in a fisherman’s net. She must bargain for her life by promising to marry the fisher and supply him with her bounty from the sea. The premise of the story is based on traditional Celtic Silkie and the Inuit Sedna folktales and is given a contemporary twist as the fisher struggles with the communities need for his fish harvest. The story was first developed during my art residency in the Yukon.
