Toronto Performance Art Collective is pleased to co-sponsor Sur Gallery’s presentation of a new performance by Regina José Galindo:

Movilización (carguen con sus muertos) / Mobilization (carry your own dead)
Sur Gallery, 100-39 Queens Quay East, Toronto (East of Yonge Street)
Thursday, November 16, 7:30-8:30 pm

Canadian mining companies extract over seventy percent of the planet’s minerals, causing a devastating impact on Latin America and other continents. Canadian companies are responsible for human rights violations and environmental disasters all over the planet. Regina José Galindo’s performance entitled Mobilization (carry your dead) is an invitation to all Canadians to take responsibility for the damage caused by their government.

Doors open at 7 pm. Limited capacity, please arrive early.
