1. FADO NEWS: What’s been happening: YOU WISH YOU LIVED IN TORONTO
Trust us, you do. FADO has been hard at work lately, and we have experienced some amazing performances in the last two months. Including Mothering, a 4-day performance installation from Toronto’s own Moyan King, performed with Dayna McLeod and Nathalie Claude in mid-February. Mothering treated Toronto to some serious pampering by our resident “moms” and we won’t ever be the same again.
A week later, the audiences of Toronto were offered a special treat in the form of the Polish Power Players/Tiny Therapeutic Theatre, with Dariusz Fodczuk and ArtI Grabowski. Both gave loud, large, funny and stunning performances at XPACE. 
See the images here:
In March, FADO hosted a 10-day mini residency in our International Visiting Artists Series with 3 artists from Tel Aviv - Yaron David, Meir Tati and Karin Mendelovici. 
FADO asked Yaron David to curate two other artists from Tel Aviv, and working together as a trio, to create a new performance in/for Toronto, using an invented collaborative working model. After a short residency in Toronto, the final work was the culmination of a continuous improvised performance and working process that began for the artists a month prior. 
2. FADO NEWS: What’s happening right now
FADO Performance Art Centre presents: Not Waterproof by Julie Andrée T.
Monday April 27, 2009
The Theatre Centre (1087 Queen Street West, Toronto)
$10/$8 students/arts workers
Conceived and performed by Julie Andrée T.
Lighting Design by Jean Jauvin.
Sound Design by Laurent Maslé. 
FADO Performance Art Centre is pleased to present Julie Andrée T. (Quebec, Canada) in a special one-night only performance of Not Waterproof. Julie’s unique blend of performance art and theatre has been presented across Canada and around the world. She has worked with choreographers and directors Benoit Lachambre, Xavier Le Roy, Dominique Porte, Martin Bélanger, Jacob Wren and filmmaker Dominic Gagnon, and since 2003 she has been performing with the notorious performance art ensemble Black Market International.
When performance-installation encounters theatre in Julie Andrée T's work, the blend is unsettling and fascinating. Julie's iconoclastic work is a hybrid of these two approaches in which dialogue, a series of actions and live images are gradually distilled into poetry. Disconcerting, moving and unclassifiable, Not Waterproof deploys an astounding transformation of the body by means of a metamorphosis of the stage landscape. In Not Waterproof, Julie Andrée T. exchanges dramatic text for a material based writing created through physical action, refusing all semblance of character and playing with the codes of representation. Her body is subjected to a series of ordeals, is pulverized and dirtied, becoming a dreamscape. In exposing her vulnerability, she quietly conveys the impermanent and ephemeral nature of our lives. Like an effervescent fraternal twin.
About the artist:
Julie Andrée T.’s installations and performance works have been shown in Canada, US, South America, Asia and Europe. She has collaborated with numerous artists, choreographers and directors, as well as working with the PONI collective from Brussels as co-artistic-director in 2007. Some of her major works in Canada include a series of installation-environments exploring the human body in different constructed environment where weather, architecture and sound co-existed as in Weather Report/Potentiels évoqués (presented at Skol Gallery in Montreal, 2005). In 2007 she created Études d’un phénomène ou l’invention d’un souvenir at Chambre Blanche (Quebec), an exploration of our fascination with weather and natural disaster in the age of spectacle and media. Julie Andrée T. is currently guest artist Faculty at the School of museum of Fine Arts in Boston (USA) where she teaches performance art.

5. EVENT: InterSER0 / InterBEING0 International Action Art Encounter in Mexico
DATES: April 14-15 and June 15-20; Source: Elvira Santamaria
Carrillo Gil Museum of Art / National Fund for Culture and Arts
1) Time doesn't exist, the creation of time. April 14th - 18th 
2) Hedonism in Performance Art. June 15th - 20th 
InterSER0, International Action Art Encounter is an independent project of Mexican action artists in collaboration with the Carrillo Gil Museum of Art and the Mexican National Fund for Culture and Arts through its Projects and Co-Investment Program.
InterSER0 emerges from the interest of a group of action artist in Mexico City to build a debate platform to discuss issues regarding this art form in any of its modalities: chamber performance, performance-installation, interventions, public art, processes, etc. InterSER0 focuses on the concepts, ideas, styles and attitudes of a small group of artist and their works to enable us to identify the cultural epicentre of the subject matter proposed. The aim is to enrich this approach to performance art forms by extending the contextual framework and identifying the aspects that build the cultural, social, political, aesthetic and ethic relational circle they form.
InterSER0 is divided into two events proposed by the artist and curator Elvira Santamaría: Time doesn't exist, the creation of time- 14th-18th April and Hedonism in Performance Art- 16th-22nd June. This project is based on an anthropologic - philosophic - aesthetic point of view, considering the affluence and influence of new concepts, ideas, values and counter-cultural narratives arising in different fields of science, technology, philosophy, history, art and other interdisciplinary forms of knowledge, etc.
The contemporary art practices promote counter-cultural narratives in an attempt to open or affirm the space of freedom of art. For performative forms, this space is open as a platform of debate of the ideas that the artist embodies. Thus, this event will be the place to meet and discuss old topics of performativity in art, seen from new perspectives and through actual art works.
Time doesn't exist, the creation of time - 14th-18th April. We are proud to count on the participation of Alastair McLennan (Northern Ireland, Belfast), Kurt Johannessen (Norway, Bergen), Diana Olalde, Flavio Montessoro, Omar González (México City). Elia Espinoza, on the theoretical side and Elvira Santamaría, artist and curator.

Dates: various: Source: BBB Johannes Deimling
PERFORMANCE ART STUDIES with BBB Johannes Deimling 2009
Bröllin - Berlin - Dresden - Radom - Montreal - Prague - 's-Hertogenbosch
In cooperation with international organizations in Germany, Poland, the Netherlands and Czech Republic, performance artist and educator BBB Johannes Deimling will be offering various performance art workshops and opportunities in 2009. These workshops will investigate the focal questions and practices of performance art work through practical and theoretical exercises and talks, and the results of these workshops will be presented in the context of internationally recognized performance art events and festivals. 
The center of the workshop focuses on self-perception and communication with the body in performance. Self perception and experience characterize the feeling in dealing with the body, time and space in performance art, as well as in ordinary communication. To understand the body as a tool, and to learn to use this tool in communication, is the main goal of these workshops. In addition to practical and theoretical studio teachings, participants will have the experience of connecting with other artists and the larger performance art community. 
Performance art is always speaking about the present, is looking for debate and wants dialogue. Performance Art burgeons in the mind and in contact with others. Performance Art has an own language and own aesthetics, and as an art form, is constantly developing its signs and medias. It breaks with tradition, rejects it, renews it, refers to itself, presents new ways…and breaks it again. The method is interactive: The intermediation of performance art with the medias of performance art. The participants experiment, reflect, test, have a first-hand experience with the body, and work through a personal approach to this artform.

14. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Performance Research Vol. 15, No. 1 (March 2010)
Date: see below: Source: Performance Research
Memento Mori – Call for Contributions
Issue Editors: Robert John Brocklehurst and Daniel Watt, Loughborough University
The aim of this issue of Performance Research is to examine cultural representations of death and dying and their relation to performance. Calling on professionals and practitioners from across academia, the arts and the ‘death industry’ ‘Memento Mori’ will include a range of critical essays, photographic work, artist’s pages and interviews that explore the ways in which death and the cultural practices that surround it are represented and memorialised in social and private spaces, from theatre to everyday ritual. 
‘Memento Mori’ examines ways in which performance brings the processes of death, dying, and the memorialisation of the dead to consciousness. Theatre, performance and the cultural practices of death are themselves moments which bring mortality to mind, that enable us to reflect upon our own lives and the lives of those departed. Performance equally struggles with the passing of its own event and the complex archival activity that stands in place of its vanishing. How do the dynamics of performance itself provide an engagement with the process of dying?
How do recent advances in technology change formalized cultural approaches to dying, and has death become mechanical, dutiful and deliberately distanced as a consequence? How does ‘staging’ death, as a cultural approach to funeral ritual, alter our perception of death? Despite our best attempts at seriousness and respect issues of death and dying provoke grim humour, sensationalist performances and slapstick comedy. This issue questions how and why we attempt to negotiate the processes of death and dying or find representations and memorialisations that attempt to normalize the inevitable. 
Key Questions
How do diverse theatrical and performance events, from the sideshow to Hamlet, provoke reflection upon mortality, and the processes of death and dying? 
By what means do the activities associated with death (oratories, literary readings, music, design, costume and procession) serve similar demands across cultures, and how can the ritual processes of dying and death still resist cultural homogenisation? 
The representation of death often requires the ornate, the hidden and the procedural in opposition to its reality; the banal, the apparent and the random. What new or re-considered forms of language or praxis do we as beings and as cultures, need to engage with the fact of dying and death? 
How have the many forms of historical representation of death, from mourning ritual to charlatan photographic ‘ghosts’, become a form of spectral discourse for something that cannot be directly confronted? 
Potential topics include: 
Death Ritual: from the Mexican Day of the Dead to mummification 
Death Devouring: from Tibetan sky burials to the taboo of cannibalism 
Memento Mori: from the Danse Macabre to the ornate tombstone 
‘Et in Arcadia Ego’: death, presence and impossibility 
Of Dying: from the Ars Moriendi to the ethics of suicide clinics 
Staging Death: from the ghost in Hamlet to the macabre Grand-Guignol 
Death Defying: from being shot to the live burials of the sideshow 
Representing the After-Life: from the ghostly emanations of Victorian ectoplasm and tabletapping to the modern séances of Derren Brown 
Death Exhibit: from curating death to the autopsies of Gunther von Hagens 
Death Penalty: from the performance of public executions to the web broadcast of terrorist murder 
Death Industry: from the art of the obituary to floral tributes 
‘Memento Mori’ invites proposals for articles, artist’s pages and other documents for this issue. In the first instance please send proposals of 300-500 words (full articles should ONLY be sent after acceptance to proceed to draft stage). For artist’s pages and other documents please send a sample of up to 3 images (or other material) and an accompanying rationale of 200-300 words.

Tammy Forsythe
May 19-29 (9 days) * Mon-Fri, 9:30am to 12:30pm
$125 (VIP) / $140 (reg)
The workshop will focus on the political nature of choreography, sound, and video exploration. Based on Forsythe's physical and theatrical methods, which are influenced by athletic and martial arts training, participants will be guided through an intensive preliminary physical and sound workshop, which will then be translated to an exterior context somewhere in the city. The workshop will include both studio and site specific explorations (tba to the participants, during initial phase of workshop). The workshop is a continuation of the Tusketdance project, where politics and movement are intertwined to forge experimentation within the creative process, allowing theatrical expressions to emerge absent of classical notions of dance and form. Both actors and dancers are encouraged to participate. www.tusketdance.com

To apply, please send resumes by May 25, 2009 to scotiabanknuitblanche@toronto.ca, with the subject line: The Apology Project. 
Event Information
Scotiabank Nuit Blanche is a free city-wide celebration of contemporary art taking place from sunset on 
Saturday, October 3rd to sunrise on Sunday, October 4th, 2009.  This festival encourages the public to explore the unique side of Toronto through public art commissions, all-night exhibitions, live performances and creative art programs featured throughout the city. All related projects and commissioned art installations are pre-planned and produced by the City of Toronto’s Special Events department.  
In 2008, this event brought together the exceptional talents of more than 750 artist and curators, 450 docents and volunteers, 92 galleries, museums, cultural and educational institutions and neighbourhoods, and 24 corporate sponsors and media partners. Close to 1,000,000 patrons attended the event in 2008, and we expect attendance to exceed 1,000,000 people in 2009.

Performance Art & Action Poetry
Over the past 30 years, Action Art found fertile fields of confluence between the experimentation on vision and gesture and poetic-visual sound dramaturgy. Most of this research was characterized by the connection between Performance Art , “total poetry” and the nomadism of the performer that restlessly shifts through linguistic fields just like through geographic territories and varied socio-cultural circles. This year Harta Performing stresses the concept of nomadism perceived as the key element in the performer work. In the theoretical intervention opening the fifth edition of the festival, great attention will be given to the dialectic of relationships “between spiritus and corpus, subject and object, imagination and reality, thought and action, private and public, local and global, specific and total, project and performance”. As stated by Giovanni Fontana “on these oppositions, a fluctuating dynamics takes shape, it holds up the energy and matter continuum in which action is strenuously built. The body energy is used to get rid of imposed references and directions and to generate new situations; it continuously breaks the temporary balances and favours the construction of interlinguistic and intermedial systems that influence the dynamics of the elements involved.”
The international festival “ART ACTION - Harta Performing Monza”, unanimously considered one of the most interesting events in the framework of international Art innovation, is a significant point of reference for cultural exchange. After the success of the previous editions, this year the festival offers to the city of Monza not only a comparison between the new arts but also an opportunity to reflect on one of the most pressing and thrilling issues of the theoretical debate: the meaning and the creation techniques of the “plural work”, true action field of the polyartist, “who can play his cards right between poetry and cinema, theatre and music, dance and visual arts”.

21. WORKSHOP:The Engaged Body: Live Art, Performative video
Dates: June 21-28, 2009; Source: MediaNet
Location: MediaNet, Victoria BC, Canada
Cost: $600 cdn. 
Registration deadline: June 1, 2009
The Engaged Body is a 10-day intensive workshop focusing on “live art”- performance art as embodied actions, and performative video works - taught by respected educator and performance artist, Judith Price
Contemporary performance art is one of the ‘live art’ disciplines and encompasses several different formats, from task–based actions and rituals to durational and interventional pieces. Most involve some form of movement and gesture and some include vocalization or story telling.
Participants are individually assisted while exploring the technical, practical and artistic challenges involved in producing performance art pieces and performative video in a supportive and collaborative environment.
Examples of both contemporary and historical performance works will be examined through daily lectures, video viewings and group discussions.
Each participant will engage in several live performance actions exploring the different forms of performance art, and everyone will take part in discussions about the individual pieces. Judith will also provide one-on-one guidance and assistance throughout this process.
Screenings of your video project/s in progress are followed by critical feedback to assist you in bringing your final video project to a public screening on the last day of the Engaged Body program.
This workshop will be of particular interest to visual artists who want to explore live art forms as part of their practice and also to those engaged in other disciplines such as dance, film or theatre who want to expand their practices across disciplines. 
For more information and an application form, please go to www.media-net.bc.ca
