About the artist/company
Tasha Diamant is a longtime ecofeminist performance artist and activist. Before Extinction Rebellion, before Greta Thunberg, Tasha stood naked on the street monthly holding the Extinction Symbol. Her work has connected her body–all of our bodies–with vulnerability and mass extinction since the 00s. (For this show she will be clothed.) The “Fairy Creek Blockade” of 2021 led to ~1300 often brutal and illegal arrests of peaceful people trying to defend the very last old growth ecosystems in BC. The BC government continues to enable old growth logging and prosecute nonviolent, mostly young people, criminalized for seeking to save their futures.
Artist reviews: Tasha Diamant won the 2018 Montreal Fringe Creativity Award (for “Naked Ugly Dancing”).
“Your work is the most interesting and powerful and important work that I’ve seen at any Fringe.” –Charles Adrian, creator of Ms. Samantha Mann
“The ultimate feminist act and the ultimate act of fringe.” — Geoff Agombar, Montreal Fringe juror
