2000 Fado Performance Inc.’s Public Spaces/Private Places

Spanning two years and featuring approximately 25 artists from Canada, the US, Europe and Asia, this series provides a broad look at issues of place and relationship. Public Spaces/Private Places explores the elements that turn neutral ‘space’ into meaningful ‘place’. These works examine the degrees of intimacy, connection and interaction that mark the dividing line between public and private. Public Spaces/Private Places is particularly concerned with performances created for intimate audiences. Some projects feature site-specific or installational environments that invite participants into a sensory or experiential journey. Others are process-oriented, involving public intervention, intimate gestures, or actions that may, by their nature, be nearly invisible. Many are designed primarily for an unsuspecting audience. Above all, what distinguishes these works is the artists’ restless, inventive impulse to find ways to allow our separate, unseen and sometimes contradictory imaginations to intermingle.
