Year of the Horse

THE COMPLETELY FICTIONAL ADVENTURES OF JOSEPHINE BAKER

Year of the Horse

November 7–15, 2014
THEATRE JUNCTION GRAND

Born in the Year of the Horse, Josephine Baker left her homeland in the USA in the 1920s to live in France where she became an international superstar and a symbol of the Jazz Age. Hers is a story of struggle, humour, dignity and survival. In collaboration with Lisa Brawn, Kimberley Cooper uses the idea of Josephine Baker as inspiration to create a fictional fantasy in an exotic, erotic, otherworldly setting. Experience images, sounds and movement that celebrate the essence of Josephine Baker set to an original score performed by a three-piece band. 

Quarter Horse

BEAKERHEAD September 2014

Quarter Horse

In 2013 I bought a vintage kiddie ride business; thirty coin-operated mechanical horses. These had been in front of Calgary stores such as Woolworths and Woodwards since the 1950s and 60s. The horses were in a state of extreme disrepair, having been neglected for a decade. 

My intention was to transform them into a giant kinetic sculpture. They required mechanical refurbishment and I removed rotten tack and sandblasted the blistered surfaces down to reveal layers of paint built up over six decades...
