    How do those vital thinkers who are no longer with us live on and how do we find the ones whose names we do not know? Here we are between mouth whispering and ear listening – hands held, eye to eye, our bodies are force fields of remembering.

    queer slow dance with radical thought: The (Ir)reverence Edition offers one-on-one experiences to participants who sign up to “read” materials of radical thought, performed by live bodies in the form of a slow dance or other intimate encounter. For us, queerness is more than gender and sexuality. We see queerness as a way of being outcast, performing thought and action outside of convention. To those who shake the boat, subtly or forcefully, who make utopian worlds in the flesh, we invite you to challenge and expand this thing called queerness.

    A layered history of naked female bodies in performance, NAKED LADIES asks tough questions around the nature of the female body and tries to understand its contested position between stigma and celebration. It brings together personal anecdotes – both traumatic and silly – alongside art history, feminist theory, and performance art, as the performer attempts a queer reckoning the/her own body. Between the naked and the nude, between forgetting fathers and remembering mothers, past sexual stigma and personal secrets, NAKED LADIES asks why women get naked on stage. Why, where, and for whom?

    IN UTERO OUT is a shadow puppetry show exploring a spectrum of intergenerational tales of embodiment. Become immersed in the imagery and microcosms presented – large-scale shadow projections and soundscapes tell a spectrum of intergenerational tales of embodiment. Reflections on so-called “uterine sagas”: The birth experience of a grandmother nearing 100 years old; An unrecognized pregnancy’s sudden ending; An expectant parent who is faced with assumptions and surprise outcomes. This work is inspired by issues of reproductive justice and multiplicity of experiences bodies can hold.

    Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches. Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

You can catch him around the city at local bars, night clubs, and special events.
