handmade fire

Garden Skool, a project by Golboo Amani, and site for community skill sharing and knowledge exchange that highlighted diverse earth work practices (supported by South Asian Visual Arts Centre)

Performance inspired by the original practice of setting fire to Southern Ontario to produce the great black oak savannahs. After the fire was lit, we opened the space for exchanges around living in an ancient remnant savannah.
