Eyelevel Gallery presents The Over the Hill Performance Series, next in a history of offsite performance projects. This series takes as its site the tamed and guarded centre of the city’s downtown, the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada. Known to many locals only as an expanse to traverse, it remains a mystery of anticipatory disuse, historical narratives, and touristic audience. Working with ideas of accidental audience, appropriation of public space, history, and mythology, Kyle Alden Martens, William Robinson, and Becky Welter-Nolan take over the hill to deconstruct the distinct historical and social conditions of one of Halifax’ most enigmatic historic sites.
