Performance

Divya Mehra and Amy Fung
Live performance - The House that Whiteness Built
NUIT BLANCHE
Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, ON, Canada, Level 1, Chen Court
September 28, 2018 - Performances at 9:00 pm and Midnight. Run time: 30 minutes (approx.). Please note that space is limited.

Artist Divya Mehra and writer Amy Fung will be premiering a new collaboration that re-positions the cherished Canadian classic, Anne of Green Gables, in a slightly new light. As a fiercely independent and strong-headed woman, Anne is ostracized by her WASP community for simply being different. Unapologetic for her challenging opinions, work ethic, and dubious background, The House that Whiteness Built re-examines this beloved heroine through an intersectional lens of race, class and gender inequality that continues into the present moment. Warning – This performance is intended for an adult audience only. Please note that it may contain adult language.
