Transport: a new performance piece by Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan

Thursday, May 29 and Friday, May 30, 2014, 7, 8 and 9 pm
Western Canadian Aviation Museum, 958 Ferry Road, Winnipeg

Join performance artists Dempsey and Millan on board the vintage Vickers Viscount passenger jet as they spin a 70s tale laced with disco, salted peanuts and transcendence.

The performance is an opportunity to experience the most intact example of a Vickers Viscount aircraft in the world, and share in a metaphysical, performative journey, courtesy of your flight crew. Collaborators since 1989, Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan were catapulted into the international spotlight in their 20s with the performance and film We’re Talking Vulva.

Since then, their performance pieces and videos have been exhibited in venues as far-ranging as women's centres in Sri Lanka and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. This Winnipeg-based duo has created installations (such as Archaeology and You for the Royal Ontario Museum) and books (such as Bedtime Stories for the Edge of the World, Arbeiter Ring Press). They have also curated exhibitions and screenings, including supernovas and Subconscious City as Adjunct Curators at The Winnipeg Art Gallery.

Known to many as simply the Lesbian Rangers, they have been acclaimed as “one of the high-points of contemporary Canadian artistic production.” (Border Crossings Magazine).

To reserve seats, email Tickets are $7.50/each and can be purchased at the door. Because seating is limited, tickets must be picked up 15 minutes before “flight time”. The Museum is located at the very end of Ellice Ave. Go to where Ellice dead ends, and follow the signs.

The Winnipeg Flying Club is pleased to announce the availability of the President’s Trophy Award for 2014. This award recognizes performance in the achievement of the Private Pilot Licence.

WFC has offered awards for pilot training, flight instruction, aviation excellence, and volunteerism, for much of our 85+ year history.

Applications are being accepted from Manitoba women of all ages, who achieved their Private Pilot Licence between March 9, 2013 and May 24, 2014 (participation in the Women Fly For Free event is not an eligibility requirement for these awards).
