'My Ocean' - screening of site-specific performance

Monday 26 June 2017 | 5pm | Prague College Blanicka, Room 001/002

In August 2016, performance artist Bethany Lacktorin (fomerly programme leader in Interactive Media at Prague College) led audiences on an hour-long walk through a carefully composed environment of sound, music and storytelling at Ordway Prairie Nature Preserve in Pope County, Minnesota.

The pathway ran through a diverse range of ecological habitats, as well as the ruins of Fort Lake Johanna, and the site of Lacktorin’s childhood home, which had previously been her great-grandmother’s General Store. Along the walk, Lacktorin shared stories ranging from her family history and personal memoir, to naturalist interpretations of the local ecology, Dakota history and Immigrant legends.

Now a special screening of the performance is to be shown at the college on 26 June, presented by Bethany. "I'd like to share with you all what i was doing the last almost three years in the US," she says. "This is a video documentation of the outdoor, site-specific sound and performance installation, 'My Ocean', that I made at my home in Minnesota last summer. Hope to see you there!"
