Bio

Molly Carney led the tragic life as a lactose intolerant born and raised in America’s Dairyland. The cultural rejection associated with this forced Carney 2,059 miles Westward (3,314 km) to Vancouver, BC Canada where the cost of cheese is greater than its weight in gold. Carney is now receiving her BMA in Film, Video and Integrated Media at Emily Carr University.

Performance Ideas and Genre

1. Durational Performance -
As a durational performance, I would like to dedicate a year of my life towards only consuming what is made/grown by me locally such as food grown from a garden that I produce and clothing made by me. All transportation will be done by bicycle so that no oil is consumed, etc. Here's an example: http://www.animalvegetablemiracle.com/


2. Relational Performance –
I would like to do a performance that is relative to the Olympic state that we are in here in Vancouver, BC. There is so much national pride going on all around us. My nationality is American; therefore I’d like to dance around with sparklers (cultural/patriotic symbol of US) while wearing an American flag bandana. After dancing around I’ll sit and put the bandana over my face as a representation of the shame experienced by an American ex-patriot.


3. Ritual Performance –
My morning ritual upon awakening involves making a cup of coffee, waiting for the cup to be made, and then slowly drinking the cup of coffee on the couch while thinking about the day’s possibilities. I would like to video tape this ritual!
