FADO performance series

Adina Bar-On May 10, 2002

TORONTO, Canada ... On Saturday, October 5 and Sunday, October 6, Fado is pleased to present Israeli artist Adina Bar-On's performance, DISPOSITION. This walking tour, lasting between one and two hours, is presented as part of Fado's ongoing PUBLIC SPACES/PRIVATE PLACES series.

In DISPOSITION, Adina Bar-On reframes personal stories in the context of local surroundings and circumstances,. Her work speaks to the concept of viewpoint, using local geography, history and culture to influence the shape of her shared journey with the audience. As she leads people on a walking tour, she presents situations, instructions and images that question the familiar, and bring to the forefront the variability of both physical and emotional points of view. Her work challenges us to reconsider the factors that determine what is seen and not seen.

Adina Bar-On is widely recognized to be Israel's first performance artist, creating work since the 1970s. Her performances are remarkable for their sensitivity, emotional depth, and for Bar-On's willingness to tackle difficult and controversial subjects. Bar-On lives and works in Tel-Aviv, dividing her time between teaching (performance and visual communication) and her art practice, which includes performance art and video. In the past several years she has toured extensively in Europe and Asia. This is her first trip to Canada. A book about her work in English and Hebrew was published in 2001 with the support of the Herzliya Museum of Art in Israel.
