For me it is more and more interesting to play with the places in which I perform. A picture cannot explain a place, I need to stand on the street corner and smell the atmosphere. I see the people on the street and gauge their willingness to interact. Image of Toronto will be a spontaneous performance created in response to the geography and community of Toronto.
