Alexis O’Hara *Ottawa, Canada, lives and works in Montreal, Canada.
The Canadian performance artist Alexis O’Hara has been active in Montreal’s cabaret and experimental-music scene since 1997. Before devoting herself primarily to projects involving vocal and electronic music and interactive performance, she worked as a slam poet. Her works often revolve around language, anthropomorphism, reason, heart or social order. A passionate expert at resurrecting waste products, she is interested in creating situations that highlight the connection and the separation between the public and the performer. Among her interactive projects are Change and The Sorrow Sponge. Her eclectic live projects make use of live art, experimental music, pop-music elements, stand-up comedy, the spoken word, photography and sound installations. She calls herself a "transdisciplinary artist."
