Kiki’s Cold Reads and Hot Takes


Kiki's Cold Reads and Hot Takes: reviews of performances from TPAC's 2022 7a*11d festival in Toronto.

As Toronto Performance Art Collective (TPAC) enters another festival year, with the 14th edition of the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art scheduled for October of 2024, we invite our audiences to reflect on the 2022 edition. Follow our Instagram (@7a11d) as our very own Kiki (a.k.a. Kiera Boult) takes viewers on a guided tour of the last festival. Don’t miss her incisive, unique perspective as she offers a series of Cold Reads and Hot Takes.

One review a week every Monday between now and mid-April, followed on Thursdays by interviews with each of the artists, done by members of the TPAC collective. You can also check out the video documentation of the artists’ performances on our website.

Enjoy and stay tuned.
