Anthropology of the Discard – Artist Talk by Dr. Kathryn Ricketts



Anthropology of the Discard - Artist Talk by Dr. Kathryn Ricketts

Bags of stories waiting to be told…

Fascinated by the wall of Value Village where conglomerates of objects hang in plastic bags for the standard price of $2.99, Kathryn has collected those that are ‘bulging’ with compelling possible new narratives. This talk illuminates the saliency of objects as triggers for performative storytelling.

Kathryn has been working for the past 35 years in the fields of dance, theatre and visual arts, performing and teaching throughout Europe, South America, Africa, Australia and Canada. Her work in studios, galleries, theatres and environmental sites focuses on social/political issues with dance, theatre, text and visual art as the languages. Her Doctoral research furthered this into areas of literacy, embodiment and cultural studies with a method she has coined Embodied Poetic Narrative.  She is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education in the University of Regina as the chair of the Dance area. She runs The Listening Lab, a visual and performing arts incubator and presents exhibitions and performances in her loft in the John Deere Tractor Building.
