1991 and The Shining Lake
A car drives down the highway at night. No fucking clue where its going.
Are you cool or are you a loser?
1991 is a modern myth about what its like to grow up in the early 90s as a victim of sexual assault in a community encased in fear.
In this snarly, unapologetic, overhead projection performance, Guilty by Associations Cole Lewis collides the nostalgic, the modern, the tragic, and the bizarre with a touch of riot grrl punk.

THE SHINING LAKE
A storyteller who's lived in Canada for a long time is having trouble describing her immigration experience. So instead, she's telling us about a girl, taken from her village by a giant bird and left alone in a vast forest. The girl is on a quest to go back to her village, even as she's putting down roots in this new, strange home.
The Shining Lake is a story within a story, a way to explain a true immigration experience entirely by telling lies. At once a very simple storytelling moment, and a portal into fantasy.
