Exhibitions & Events
RAISING STANLEY, an audio-visual perfomance with painter Karen Bailey and storyteller Kim Kilpatrick, will be presented at the Great Canadian Theatre Company (GCTC), Summer 2018.
In their collaborative performance piece, Karen Bailey and Kim Kilpatrick delve into issues of identity, accessibility and canine service using sound and images. Referencing the idea of labour and community, Karen Bailey’s acrylic paintings depict the socialization process inherent in raising a guide dog for the blind. Born blind, storyteller Kim Kilpatrick brings forward the voice of an artist with a disability; voices not often heard in our community. Her personal stories reflect the lived experience as a handler of a guide dog.
