LABELLED – The Production, Film + Exhibit is a multi-media experience by Humainologie that explores the impact of the labels we ascribe to ourselves and others on our identity and relationships.
The production includes a photography exhibit featuring 14 portraits of Calgarians who share their real stories about labels they have held and that may have defined, reduced or wounded them. Some portraits are accompanied by short audio stories. LABELLED also features a short film and a dance and theatre production (by Humainologie and Swallow A Bicycle Theatre).
Through story, metaphor and vignettes, the production questions the role of labels in our lives and, in particular, the way definition and judgment impact our identity, sense of self and relationships.
