Description

The Cant is a book and was a performance. This book compiles drawings made by Paul McDevitt over a two-week period in rural British Columbia during June and July 2009. The drawings are presented in approximate chronological order and the book is largely unedited. These improvised drawings informed the anatomy of a one-off shadow play presented by Artspeak in Vancouver, July 29, 2009.
