A HOT TICKET presentation.

By Shaista Latif
Shaista Latif is a perpetual guest.
She has been invited to tell a story.
Shaista Latif is a storyteller.
Shaista Latif is a story.

To mark her position and her eventual disappearance she creates a live archive to test the enduring value of her existence. Using childhood mementos, music, videos and found objects, Latif boldly questions who has the right of preserving a history.

In this compelling and hilarious documentary performance, Latif invites the audience to help her preserve what is at the risk of being erased and forgotten.

Four shows. Showtimes are as follows:
Feb. 27-29 at 8 p.m.
Feb. 29 at 2 p.m.

Latif’s works have been presented at the NAC’s Ontario Scene Festival, SummerWorks, Why Not Theatre’s Riser Project, Halifax Queer Acts, Art Gallery of Ontario and the Rhubarb Festival.
