Humans of Fairy Creek

Human Body Project

"Humans of Fairy Creek 2024" director, Tasha Diamant, made her fringe debut 15 years ago with the heartbreakingly prescient "Human Body Project."

Since then, Diamant has traveled to many fringes (including winning the Montreal Fringe Creativity Award in 2018) and her ecofeminist art and activism has taken many forms.

Last year, in the hottest summer in 100,000 years, while undergoing chemotherapy for Stage 4 cancer, Diamant produced a powerful, uncomfortable theatrical event at the 2023 Victoria Fringe, "Humans of Fairy Creek: A Variety Show." This year’s multimedia sequel will, again, feature people and friends of people who got the shit beat out of them by the RCMP.

Thousands took part in the 2021 “Fairy Creek Blockade” and around 1300 were arrested (often brutally and illegally). These were nonviolent, mostly young people trying to defend the very last old growth ecosystems in BC. The BC and Canadian governments continue to facilitate old growth logging, as well as other devastating resource extraction projects, and have escalated the criminalizing of people who protest against ecocide and genocide (especially Indigenous and racialized people).

All contributions come from those who were on the ground at Fairy Creek, rather than government and media disinformation and lies. The stories of these brave youth not only deserve to be told, they deserve to be linked to the acceleration of global ecocidal and genocidal actions perpetrated by states and corporate interests. Humans of Fairy Creek 2024 is a rare theatrical piece exploring this pivotal, ongoing Canadian story of resistance. @humansoffairycreek2024
