When blue falls in to the ocean

Join artist Jessica Karuhanga for When blue falls in to the ocean, a captivating performance supporting the ROM original exhibition Here We are Here: Black Canadian Contemporary Art.

Blue is a feeling swirling somewhere between violet and green. The blues are bound up in a distant imaginary wilderness and yet they leak everywhere.

When blue falls in to the ocean is a series of poetic movements and text that meditate on the story, spectres and the contours of the stage.
