If I Should Stumble
-A performance by Jenn Goodwin in collaboration with and performed by Anita Nittoly and performers

Vertigo is the conflict between the fear of falling and the desire to fall.
-Salman Rushdie

We are looking for volunteer performers to take part in a performance July 5th and 6th at Nathan Phillips Square, City Hall
during ART NOW! At the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition.

Stunt performer Anita Nittoly uses the stairs as her stage and her nemesis as part of this performance. Volunteers perform
in opposition to Anita’s clutzsy yet controlled chaos. They will be asked to do slow and gentle movement up and down
stairs. This will require 1-2 rehearsals late June/early July. Shows are July 5th and 6th and take place at Nathan Philips
Square in the afternoon. Thanks for considering being a part of this.

Please contact Jenn at hellojennyg@gmail.com
