Frame of Reference was performed on the summit of the Midnight Dome in Dawson City, Yukon at the 20th Annual Yukon Riverside Arts Festival (August 15 & 16, 2020).

Sadie’s solo piece, Frame of Reference, explores her connection to people around her and her natural environment. Sadie has been exploring how people see her, strangers or close family. Through this work she wanted to explore connection to the land while respecting the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation, the original people who live and occupy this Traditional Territory. Personally, Sadie explored reflection, silence, confusion, and where her voice fits into the issues of injustice in our world today. Sadie’s hope was that the audience was able to identify with her piece and reflect about themselves internally as well as the people and land around them. The piece was performed at 8 PM in the setting sun on top of the Midnight Dome: audience members were invited to participate via written phrases which were incorporated into the performance.
