Biography

Theatre artist, videomaker, teacher. Bishops- and Ryerson-trained, Toronto-based Bulmer’s identity as a vision-impaired lesbian informs her artistic work on stage, on radio, and on the small screen, all of which excel in rich auditory artistic compensations for images that come and go. Her first video Beauty, (1998, 12) plays with voice recognition devices and striking visual fluctuations to line up sensory memories—and assessments—of her lovers over the years, from the frivolous me-person to the deep, silent, beer-drinking butch who likes The Sound of Music.
