Founded in the spring of 2007, the TouVA Collective is a performance art trio researching the practice of performance through multiple frameworks and approaches. In addition to conducting workshops, creating dynamic artist talks and offering coaching to artists in a variety of contexts—including international festivals—TouVA is a group of artist-researchers interested in a profound exploration of ‘the performative’. Working consistently from a model of exchange and dialogue, recent activities include a research residence at the Centre d’information Artexte in Montreal, a performative lecture at VIVA! Art Action, as well as the production of a book.
Sylvie Tourangeau is featured as an Éminence Grise in this year’s festival. Victoria Stanton is an international performance artist, video-maker, and published writer. Educated in arts and literature, Anne Bérubé works as a researcher and artist in both fields.
