A work by Gita Hashemi, a performance and walking tour with Naomi Binder Wall and John Croutch. Like Flesh and Blood starts from the memoirs of Joseph Emin (1726-1809), an Armenian born in Iran and raised in Bengal, who traveled to Europe to garner support for Armenian liberation. Emin’s journey unfolded during a period when European colonialisms were competing with one another and fast consolidating across Asia, Africa and the Americas, a time when settler states were growing out of merchant colonies. Join Naomi Binder Wall, John Croutch and Gita Hashemi for a walk to hear Emin’s accounts of his days as a migrant labourer, learn about contemporaneous developments on Turtle Island and “re-discover” Toronto, the land of the Mississaugas.
