In response to the recurring flooding in the Philippines, the Filipino artistic community wanted to raise money and awareness that there was nothing ‘natural’ about these disasters. But they knew they would have to go to drastic measures to get the point across.
OPERATION LIFEBOAT: On 8pm Sept 21st, Artistic Director of Sulong Theatre Company in partnership with Anakbayan-Toronto, Catherine Hernandez will be lying in a lifeboat filled to her chin in dirty water for a total of 24 hours. She will have no access to food and her only luxury will be to have access to clean water to drink at timed intervals and health professionals at the ready for her own health and safety. Through twitter, youtube and facebook feeds throughout the world, she will be watched as she observes a day-long demonstration/performance art installation to raise awareness and funds for the recurring flooding in the Philippines.
