This performance by Saskatoon artist Thirza Cuthand (pictured) goes Wednesday July 30 at 8 p.m. at the Artful Dodger (1631 11th Ave.). It’s being presented by the Dunlop Art Gallery as part of its Tragedy Plus Time project that examines different ways that people use humour to help cope with tragedy.
I don’t have a ton of details about the performance, but advance publicity from the gallery says that it’s autobiographical in nature, and will touch on issues such as ethnicity, sexuality, desire and the stigma of mental illness.
In addition to Cuthand’s performance, there will also be an appearance by the Tragedy Plus Time Players who will do some long-form improv. The players include Jayden Pfeifer, Katie Rich, Colby Richardson and Judy Wensel.
