BOTHISM (2018)
directed by TANYA EVANSON

Bothism is Tanya Evanson's first book of experimental Sufi poetry published by Ekstasis Editions in 2017 and Evanson's short film from 2018 that accompanies the text. Together they form a live videopoem performance of spoken word and visuals.

In this performance, the artist is both absent and present. A meditation occurs on
sorrow and joy, day and night, content and form, dot and circle, the threshold between worlds--the way to unity through listening.

This live videopoem has been presented at festivals across Canada including The Banff Centre, VerseFest (Ottawa ON), Words Aloud (Durham ON), Obey Convention (Halifax, NS), Suoni per il Popolo (Montreal QC) and Festival du Texte Court (Sherbooke QC).
