A multi-stranded narrative that follows the story of a genderqueer writer and student, Garo, as they study the life and work of Armen Ohanian, an enigmatic Armenian performer and survivor of the early 20th-century anti-Armenian pogroms in Baku. Dear Armen weaves the stories of three generations of Armenian women and queers — featuring a blend of monologue, folk dance, erotic performance and live music. It has transformed through many iterations, including immersive theatre to interactive installation, zine, workshop, and short film. It toured internationally through 2013-2016, received two residency periods in Armenia, and has been supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and BC Arts Council for various parts of its creation, production and touring.
