  • Editorial
    • Abstract: Is not hospitality an interruption of the self'Welcome. Bienvenue. Bienvenido. Make yourself at home. Fais comme chez toi. Mi casa es su casa.1 Welcome to our issue of Canadian Theatre Review, issue number 177: Radical Hospitalities.What does it mean to be welcoming' What does it mean to feel welcome' By welcoming you to this issue, we establish a series of interrelated ideas: a home and an away, a familiar and an unfamiliar, an us and a you, as well as an ours and a yours. When we welcome you, what does our relationship to you become, what are our obligations to each other, and what/who is left out of this process' Likewise, when we invite you to "make yourselves at home," what relations do we instantiate' ...

  • The Most Unwelcoming 'Outstanding Welcome': Marginalized Communities and
           Museums and Contemporary Art Spaces
    • Abstract: Art institutions across North America are grappling with how to create an 'outstanding'1 sense of welcome for their visitors, artists, and potential work colleagues.2 Community outreach programs, access initiatives, and other dedicated resources have been implemented across the board to try to reach the goal of creating an outstanding welcome. But what makes an outstanding sense of welcome' And, importantly, what makes a sense of unwelcomeness' For many traditionally marginalized from arts communities (such as Black and racialized, disabled, queer, and trans people) our sense of unwelcomeness is all too familiar in this white supremacist, ableist, trans and queer phobic anti-Black world. Our institutions are ... Read More

  • #WelcomeToCanada: Performing Asylum, Defending Nation
    • Abstract: On 27 January 2017, American President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning refugees as well as immigrants from seven "majority-Muslim countries" from entering the United States.1 On 28 January 2017, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted 'on behalf' of the Canadian people:Justin Trudeau@JustinTrudeau☒To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada2:20 PM Jan 28, 2017Fourteen minutes later, he followed up by tweeting a 2015 photo of him greeting Syrian refugees at Toronto's Pearson International Airport, where he welcomed the newly arrived refugees by saying, "You're safe at home now" (qtd. in Hadfield ...

  • Rethinking the Practice and Performance of Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
    • Abstract: What follows is an edited transcription of a plenary presentation at the Canadian Association for Theatre Research that took place on 30 May 2018 at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts concert hall in the city now called Kingston, in the province now known as Ontario. Presenters were asked to consider land acknowledgement from their various perspectives. The questions posed to the panellists (and to those of you reading this now) included: Does the acknowledgement of Indigenous lands and waterways elide the acknowledgement of other forms of structural and epistemic violence within the specific contexts we work in as academics and artists' How might acknowledgement be aligned with a politics of ...

  • Performing Hospitality, Speaking Solidarity
    • Abstract: Hospitality: a question of responsibility—both material and spiritual. Its French root (hôte) translates as both host and guest; hospitality is a complex relationship between these positionalities, and the obligation to attend to these relations.1 Complex and radical notions of hospitality ask us to consider how it exceeds generosity; while generosity might be an ethics we can (attempt to) put into practice, hospitality is not a choice. Rather, "an infinite hospitality surrenders us to others before we even have the option to choose whether or not we want to act ethically" (Heard 327). In short, "hospitality is culture itself and not simply one ethic amongst others" (Derrida 16).Solidarity, like hospitality, is ... Read More

  • Micro-Life: A Reflection on Species and Collaboration
    • Abstract: In trying to elaborate a concept of micro-life, it might be useful for us to trace how it originated in an interaction. We were introduced to each other in the context of AIDS. "You both work on AIDS. I think you should meet," a colleague said. She introduced us in the back of a long performance theatre as we were waiting for a lecture to begin. The talk was by Carla Freccero, and it was called "Queer/Animal/Theory: Psychoanalysis and Subjectivity." She made lovely comments about entre chien et loup, the French expression for the time of day we'd call dusk or twilight in English. We had dinner the next week. While less cinematic, the meal echoed Morpheus's dramatic proposition to Neo in The Matrix: "You take the ... Read More

    • Abstract: From 5 to 7 October, 2017, the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics hosted the Graduate Student Initiative Convergence (Hemi GSI), "Unsettling the Americas: Radical Hospitalities and Intimate Geographies," in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Hemi GSI is a conference that invites graduate students, emerging scholars, artists, and activists to engage with politics and performance in the Americas by participating in working groups organized around specific themes. Our working group, Dis-Performing: Disability and Performance, invited interested participants to think about the ways artists, activists, and academics are "shifting/moving/unsettling understandings and performances of disability within various ...

  • Mad Woman's ESL Poetry
    • Abstract: Minah Lee at the beginning of MAD WOMAN'S ESL POETRY, cabaret organized by Hemi GSI Convergence 2017, CAMINOS 2017, at Toronto's Daniels Spectrum.Photo by Brian BatchelorThis piece was performed during Convergence 2017. In that iteration, a video by Milton Lim was projected on a large screen onstage. The visual part is a slide show in which a statement first appears in Korean, and then the translation is spelled out in English letter by letter to eventually appear as a whole, accompanied by a soundtrack of plinking, disjointed sounds. The slides in Korean are accompanied by loud drum and bass type music which stops abruptly when the English spelling begins. Each of these sequences constitutes a 'chapter,' and the ... Read More

  • In/hospitality and Un/inhabitability: Three Scenes in the Work of Lido
           Pimienta
    • Abstract: Colombian-Canadian singer, musician, and artist Lido Pimienta's We're in a Non-Relationship Relationship is, as Facebook would have it, complicated. A "live graphic novel performance" ("We're"), this twenty-minute show features her in character (one I will call P.), dressed in overalls with her hair in pigtails, telling a story—at once sad and funny, half stand-up, half bathroom girl gossip confessional—about what it means to be an independent woman living in the city today.1 With Pimienta's original illustrations projected behind her, P.'s monologue is a familiar if at times painfully too-real tale of non-committal 'fucbois,' dates who won't call you back, online dating, and ...

  • Congregating around oblivion: Dissolving the Borders between Queerness and
           Faith through Theatre
    • Abstract: oblivion is a semi-autobiographic play that portrays a young gay man's struggle to integrate his sexuality with his spirituality after growing up in a fundamentalist Christian community and attending conversion therapy. Between 2014 and 2017, oblivion was presented in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario to over 2,500 people at a variety of progressive and conservative Christian communities and organizations as well as Christian, secular, and multi-faith conferences.1 The play's genesis and relevance are linked to the ongoing religion-based, anti-queer2 discrimination in Canada and the contemporary experiences of queer individuals growing up in non-affirming3 churches and communities who are forced to choose ...

  • Editorial: Transforming Form
    • Abstract: I do think I need to quit comedy . . . Seriously. It's probably not the forum to make such an announcement, is it'At the heart of definitions of performance—from Richard Schechner's "twice-behaved behavior" to Elin Diamond's "doing/done"—is a sense of repetition with difference. However, the extent of this 'difference' can vary greatly, with performance used as a means to both uphold and challenge accepted norms. In June 2018, Netflix released Hannah Gadsby's comedy special Nanette. The special quickly went viral—my own social media feeds teemed with praise for the work, and the Australian comedian was featured in numerous media articles internationally. For many, Nanette marked a watershed moment for comedy. But ... Read More

  • Mouthpiece: The Female Body and the Dialectics of Being Seen and Heard
    • Abstract: I figured it out. I figured out what this feeling is. It's rage.It's exhaustion. It's an awakening. From that point forward, we said, we got to make a play about that.When Jodi Foster saw Toronto-based company Quote Unquote Collective's Mouthpiece, she liked it so much, she flew it down for a short run in Los Angeles. The play also had a Canadian tour and a month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of the new all-Canadian venue, Canada Hub, in August 2017. Now, the company is gearing up for a substantial international tour in the summer of 2018. The play's ongoing success is likely tied to the virtuosic performances from creator-performers Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava, who sing, dance, move, and speak with ... Read More

  • Seeking the International Intercultural: The Seventieth Edinburgh Fringe
           Festival
    • Abstract: The Edinburgh Fringe Festival celebrated its seventieth anniversary in 2017.1 Much has changed since 1947, when the Fringe began out of frustration that the Edinburgh International Festival (EIF) did not include local work. 'International' has been supplemented in much critical discourse by 'global,' 'transnational,' and 'intercultural,' which no longer mean Europe and the Englishspeaking world, as 'international' has tended to do. There has also been an exponential increase in the numbers and kinds of festivals internationally, and fringes—Edinburgh was the first, but there are now well over 250 internationally—have become independent industries with no necessary association with a 'main stage.' When such a ... Read More

  • Feeling Authentic' When a Review May Not Be Enough
    • Abstract: Jacob Wren. Authenticity Is a Feeling: My Life in PME-ART. Toronto: Book*hug, 2018.As I'm attempting to review Jacob Wren's Authenticity Is a Feeling: My Life in PME-ART, I find myself facing a few concerns which, while not quite original, oblige me to question my own position both as a spectator and (especially) as a scholar. Indeed, what the publisher refers to on the cover as a "hybrid of history, memoir, and performance theory" forces interrogations about my own capacity to give an account of such a project's value, given that the work I must evaluate is inextricably linked to the story it renders. How to critique Authenticity Is a Feeling without necessarily critiquing PME-ART' The book is, after all, about an ... Read More
