  • Moving Together in an Era of Assembly
    • Abstract: At this moment in history when bodies gather primarily at shopping malls and when protest is frequently conducted through the ongoing circulation of petitions, I want to argue that this physical interference makes a crucial difference.In this historical moment of Women's Marches, Black Lives Matter, Occupy, and the Idle No More 'round dance revolution,' of flash mobs and pop-up culture, of relational art and postdramatic performance practices, we must think seriously about what is at stake in gathering and moving together in public spaces. Increasingly mainstream and increasingly evident, these collective reimaginings of quotidian practices, cultural consumption, and political resistance challenge the atomized ways ... Read More

  • Dramas of Homemaking and Hospitality in ATSA's Cuisine ta ville
    • Abstract: The setting of Cuisine ta ville and Le Temps d'une soupe in the esplanade of the Place des arts in the middle of the Quartier des spectacles.Photo by Daniel RobillardIn August 2017, hundreds of green cots and metal dividers were installed in the cavernous concrete halls of Montreal's Olympic Stadium. The 56,000-seat venue, which was constructed to host the 1976 Olympics, was being repurposed to perform a different kind of 'hospitality' as it was transformed into a temporary refuge for asylum seekers. The people staying in the stadium were primarily Haitians who had crossed the US—Canada border into Quebec after Trump's threat to withdraw the temporary protected status of the 59,000 Haitian refugees who had fled to ...

Vigil for Tina Fontaine and Faron Hall, Winnipeg, Manitoba. 19 August 2014.Photo by Steve McCullough, stevemccullough.ca, courtesy of Creative Commons on Flickr.comOn 23 February 2018, while Olympic athletes gathered in Pyeongchang and romanced Canadians back into the arms of national pride, over one thousand bodies congregated on the streets of downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba for an altogether different kind of public assembly. The crowd of mostly First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people was there to remember Tina Fontaine, a 15-year-old girl from Sagkeeng First Nation. Raymond Cormier, a 56-year-old settler Canadian, had just been acquitted of her murder. As per the ... Read More

  • Steel Trees, Fish Skins, and Futurity Cyphers
    • Abstract: Taking place in the year 2084, this Indigenous science fiction short story narrates the journey of a 'being' travelling through post-apocalyptic Tkaronto. The speaker in this story (whose pronouns are they/them) is a visitor in the Dish with One Spoon treaty territory, home of the Wendat, Petun, Mississaugas of the New Credit River. Generative space-making practices of Afro-Caribbean, Latinx, and other diasporic cultures live in this place. Sonic/visual genealogies, lived experiences, and connections with land live here in Tkaronto, in this place where the trees stand in the water.In introducing themselves to you—witness, hopeful accomplice—it is important to acknowledge that complicated histories, exiles ...

  • Processions for Mother Earth: Scenes from a Flooded Summer
    • Abstract: In June 2017, after months of torrential rains, Lake Ontario was at its highest recorded level in decades, and the beach at the mouth of the Rouge River remained submerged by a deep pool. The water was gradually draining to the sea, moving along the St. Lawrence River in a slow dance that would leave behind an altered landscape, not to mention flooded basements. On Toronto Island, closed to all but a few hundred residents, sandbags lined the bay, gas-powered pumps sputtered continually, and lake trout swam across the baseball diamond. It was like a sloppy kiss from Mother Earth, and a wet raspberry for the Canadian state's 150th birthday party that was to be held that summer. Some were dusting off their ... Read More

  • Moving Together, 22 Ways
    • Abstract: [W]alking 'alone' does not exist. Walking in/with the world: the only kind of walking.Our choreographies approach assemblies in motion, itinerant assemblies that spread and gather before they have time to settle. Perhaps they are diachronic assemblies, gatherings that reach through time: lingering trajectories and still-reaching gestures (Hamera 8—9; Schneider). We understand that even seemingly solo movements index assembly. As Erin Manning insists in the epigraph that opens our piece, movement is relational, interfolding, and entwined (29–32).The assemblies we propose are speculative choreographies worked through our flesh. They register our relationships to our built environments and the bodies that populate ... Read More

           Choreographies of Assembly
    • Abstract: Between 2012 and 2017, I was involved as one of four core leaders in an interdisciplinary creative project to generate better social understandings at an intersection of performance, urban development, visual culture, and civic engagement.1 Nova Scotia-based Narratives in Space + Time Society (NiS+TS) brought together more than 130 collaborators and hundreds of participants in five formal public art walks and seven research art walks for Walking the Debris Field: Public Geographies of the Halifax Explosion.

  • Choreographies of Crip and Mad Travel
    • Abstract: The characters in this choreographic script are travelling by air across the Canada–US border, differentially navigating various highly choreographed public spaces, processes, and practices that have been designed to enable the seamless assembly and mobility of only very particular publics, particular assemblies. Tis script invites two different casting choices for the role of traveller. Depending on casting, the choreography differs.The first casting choice is to cast a solo normate for the role of traveller. Rosemarie Garland-Thomson uses the term "normate" to denaturalize the bodies and subjectivities of folks who are culturally enabled to pass through life without the stigma, barriers, and struggles of those ...

  • Montreal's Maple Spring: The Afterlives of Movement Histories
    • Abstract: "Where will I be at 8 p.m.'" was a question I asked myself daily in the summer of 2012. During that spring and summer, thousands would gather in the streets of Montreal each night, banging on pots and pans to protest a new law intended to subdue striking postsecondary students by stipulating how, when, and where they could assemble in public space. Into my bag each day I placed the stainless-steel pot lid and large wooden spoon, which I had tested on previous nights for their ratio of weight to noisemaking capacity. On my jacket, I would pin the red square that had become a symbol of protest against the Quebec Liberal Party's proposed tuition hikes, which would put many students 'squarely in the red.' I then felt ... Read More

  • Black Lives Matter Toronto: Urgency as Choreographic Necessity
    • Abstract: 25 November 2014: The night is frigid and brisk. The air is moistened by bouts of snow and ice-rain—and, for a brief moment, hail. Within hours, the full spectrum of Canada's hostile climate is felt. Huddled in a courtyard across from the US Consulate, 3,000 Black Torontonians and their allies repeat in a unison chorus, again and again: 'Black Lives Matter'—a provocation uttered en masse for the first time in Toronto. This is the beginning of what would become a renaissance of radical Black activism in the Canadian political landscape. That night, as an organizer of Black Lives Matter Toronto, I undertook my most ambitious choreo graphic project to date.Protesters from the East and West African communities at the ... Read More

  • Some People Are Oil and Water
    • Abstract: The first character on the scene enters slow-moving, like molasses. While alive, this entity survived on seawater and sunlight. After death, it was eaten by bacteria, leaving only its potential energy—appearing, in the terms of organic chemistry, as a "black corpse of the sun" (Negarestani 26). A ghostly figure, it haunts porous reservoirs, wreathing water and colourless quartz sand in its complex hydrocarbon structure. Its antagonist, the material that drives its character, is intrinsic to its origin story: water. The effusiveness of life in the region was brought about by water: a sea, a swampland, algae, phytoplankton and zooplankton, and the larger organisms of its ensuing ecology. When the water moved in the ... Read More

  • Pop-Up Art and the Aesthetics of Assembly
    • Abstract: Pop-up events are an increasingly widespread cultural practice. From flash mobs to yarn bombing, themed supper clubs to short-term retail markets, temporary sites are being constructed across private and public space to gather people together for commercial and cultural events. Pop-ups, despite their different contexts and the different intentions of their makers, offer some kind of spatial intervention. In their commercial manifestations, they intervene in precarious economic spaces, inhabiting underused or abandoned environments both to take advantage of their low overhead and to illustrate their potential future value. Commercial pop-ups also counter the growing practice of online shopping with the allure of a ... Read More

Since its inauguration fifty years ago, Toronto Caribbean Carnival has grown in scope and size, drawing over a million spectators to Lake Shore Boulevard (hereafter the Lake Shore) to watch over 20,000 masqueraders in bands who create what I call a kinaesthetic landscape of colour as they 'wine' and dance for almost 3.5 kilometres in their elaborate costumes called mas.2 While landscapes are often ...

Through a case study of urban regeneration, culture-led development, and social movements in Montreal, this article examines the particular nocturnal spatio-temporal rhythms of gathering in public space.The city of Montreal is well known for its vibrant nightlife. Over the past few years, Montreal's night has been at the centre of public debate in municipal politics, local media, and conversations between business owners and residents. In ... Read More

The contributors to this issue's Views and Reviews section assess works that speak to the broad spectrum of performance and theatre practice and scholarship in Canada today, addressing issues ranging from access and aesthetics in relation to evolving definitions ...

  • Private Letters, Public Influence: A Review of A Man of Letters
    • Abstract: Jessica Riley has taken on some heavy archival lifting in editing the dramaturgical correspondence of Tarragon Theatre's longest-serving artistic director. Urjo Kareda was, after all, infamous for reading and responding to every script that crossed his desk, which, Riley notes, meant reading 300–500 plays a year (3). Spanning two decades and containing approximately 350 letters to playwrights both highly acclaimed and completely unknown, as well as letters to Kareda, the heft and scope of A Man of Letters are indicative of Kareda's practice.The resulting edition provides insight into how the artistic director's dramaturgical preferences and priorities influenced the advice he gave to emerging and established ...

  • Toronto, English-Canada, and the 'ROC': Robert Lepage Onstage
    • Abstract: There is a fundamental tension between the title of the book Robert Lepage on the Toronto Stage and Jane Koustas's stated point of inquiry, which is to "consider Lepage's encounter with an arguably more significant Other-English Canada, also referred to as the Rest of Canada (ROC)" (4). Koustas notes she uses the acronym 'ROC' to denote "the non-Quebec, non-French-speaking" audiences of Canadian literature (6).1 Throughout the book, Toronto stands in for the entirety of the ROC; the consistent collapse of the ROC to Toronto signifies what many Canadian performance historians, especially those based outside of Toronto, will recognize as an overarching issue in Canadian theatre history.Robert Lepage on the Toronto ...

  • The Strangers Within and Outside the Canadian Stage
    • Abstract: In today's climate of rising nationalism and extreme-right politics, with its attendant xenophobia and anti-immigration policies,1 Barry Freeman's book, Staging Strangers: Theatre and Global Ethics, is an urgent and timely exploration of the importance of theatre to ethical encounters with difference. Presently, political debates construct 'the other' as a figure to fear and as a threat to national 'existence,' catalyzing a relational formation of 'us' against 'them' that perpetuates the dehistoricization and depersonalization of 'other' bodies. Freeman's work endeavours to challenge this formation and suggests that theatre provides alternate ways to relate to cultural difference through the metaphoric figure of ... Read More

Most significantly, it's important for its rigorous, repeated, caring, and insistent attention to Indigenous practices, cultures, histories, artists, protests, feelings, and peoples. This attention is important in itself; that is, it is important not simply in service to performance studies.Secondarily, this attention to Indigenous experiences is also important to performance studies. It acknowledges how urgent it is to decolonize existing practices of knowing and representing the world, including practices of performance studies. Furthermore, it demonstrates and teaches approaches that do the work of decolonizing.First, a bit of context about performance studies in Canada. ... Read More
