An invitation to a very special video and performance cabaret taking place twice during Winter 2011; the first edition will take place at the Toronto Island Artscape Lodge and the second at DoubleDoubleLand in Kensington Market. The show features video works by selected artists from Toronto and abroad as well as performances by artists from each hosting space. Each piece in this collection of multidisciplinary works relates to the idea of placelessness and the deeply haunting nature inherent in transitory spaces

Performative works by the selected artists, reinforce the setting of both shows, through their relationship to the spaces they inhabit. They will act as an anchor that stabilizes and reflects the atmosphere of the event. Each artist was specifically chosen based on similarity in tone, as opposed to visual manifestation. As a curatorial experiment it explores ways of viewing that are not relying on the superficial but on the undercurrents of feeling.

Video works From (names TBA):
