Dancer and movement artist Meredith Wrede takes to the graffiti-soaked back alleys of queen and Spadina, with camera in tow. Adopting different guises, she taps into the untold stories hidden in the spray paint, allowing various personas to emerge and bounce off the multicolored walls. Using the illegal street art as inspiration, she explores the complicated relationship between self-expression and status quo, between anger and art, and in doing so, blurs the line between public space and stage. In a society where established structures are crumbling and being questioned, this is a timely response to the resounding flood of emotions caused by a tug-of-war between despair and hope.
