About the Program

Burn is a performance by contemporary Peepeekisis performance and installation artist Reona Brass that explored the shifting nature of female and First Nations identity through ritual.

"I see innocence scorched, hanging from her limbs
I smell desire and think about the pain...
I hear dignity cry out and no one does a thing...
Their ways empty sweet without humility"
