Aimée Henny Brown is travelling across the country doing performance art on a train. Catch her off the rails Thursday, May 17th

In collaboration with the AGO, OCAD, and VIA Rail, artist Aimée Henny Brown has been riding the rails across the Western half of this great nation, staging performance art onboard a long-haul passenger train (a.k.a. my dream trip.). She’s travelling from Vancouver to Toronto and back, performing for passengers twice a day, in Overland Station: par voie terre.

Her performances connect passengers to the past as she re-enacts, in full uniform, the duties of a station agent in the late 19th century, and she’s bringing the show to the AGO this Thursday, May 17th, from 6:30-9:30 pm at the Weston Family Learning Centre. Her performance will be free to the public, so stop by and step back in time. Maybe she’ll inspire you to do a bit of overland rambling yourself this summer.
