The Toronto portion of this 3-city performance exchange featuring artists from Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto begins at noon on November 3 with 12 hours of performances in the rooms of the Gladstone Hotel. Join the artists for a series of site-specific tableau scenes, interventions, one-on-one interactions and performance actions that consider and question concepts of shelter and dwelling. Bathing habits, surveillance cameras, backpack tours and Lotte Lenya will all play a role in this unpredictable and thought-provoking series of works.
The performances will be followed by a public round table discussion by the artists in the Gladstone Hotel’s bar on Sunday, November 4 at 1 pm. Artists will talk about their individual works as well as the process involved in making them, and consider questions of regional differences, the challenges of producing site-specific work, and the recent explosion of performance art activity across the country.

From 6:33 am to 10:30 pm, the artists will present their work at Elle Corazon in the heart of Mile End. From 11 pm to 6 am, these same artists will be invited to present a work inspired by the theme Sex and Pain at the anticorps, a new space dedicated to performance that will officially open its doors that night, featuring special guest DJ Disco No Disco. A round table discussion the following day will gather raw impressions and reflect upon the previous night’s experiences.
