1. EVENT: Images Festival, FADO and Dancemakers presents…

Dates: April 9 and 10, 2010


FADO Performance Art Centre and Dancemakers is pleased to co-present a LIVE Images program at the 2010 Images Festival.


April 9 and 10, 2010


155 Mill Street, Building 58

The Cannery, Toronto


Sonya and Layla Go Camping, a hybrid dance and video work by the New York-based performance duo robbinschilds (Sonya Robbins and Layla Childs), forges new territory in the Images Festival's ongoing explorations of how media art and performance collide. Though trained and rooted in the history of choreography, robbinschilds often works outside of that discipline, engaging in site-specific and installation-based performances which contain elements of video, music and sculpture.


An absurd, playful and humorous performance, Sonya and Layla Go Camping is built around a narrative that folds back in on itself over the course it's duration, creating a sort of structural feedback loop over three distinct acts. The title of the performance references Jacques Rivette's 1974 film Celine and Julie Go Boating, a film in which the two titular protagonists are engaged in a similar looping narrative, a mobius strip of a story that moves from action to inaction, function to dysfunction.


This structural basis is seen in the movement and overall narrative of the work, but it is also embodied through language in the script of the performance. The characters speak about the creative process, the details of which always remain elusive and unsaid. When this is heard during the first act, in the dark over a pair of walkie-talkies, it is as if the dialogue is outlining the actions that will play out in the ensuing performance. Childs asks, "How we gonna end this dance?" to which the reply "Have you guys ever thought of maybe taking this piece to France?" launches the second act, a French-language rendition of the dialogue from act one, shot in Paris with an ongoing visual re-enactment of key scenes from the Rivette film.


In Sonya and Layla Go Camping everything is a mirror, a shadow, a reference and a riff: the naked man with Mickey Mouse gloves who emerges on the stage in act one haunts and follows Sonya and Layla in the video of act two; the form of his white gloves is echoed in the hand-shaped chair on the set in act three. The making of the performance is constantly in flux, the lines between performers, writers and viewers continuously being blurred.


About the artists:

robbinschilds was formed by choreographers, Sonya Robbins and Layla Childs in 2003. Focused on presenting highly visual time-based works, robbinschilds explores the juncture between architecture or place, and human interaction. robbinschilds' performance work has been presented at 122, The Kitchen, The New Museum, Triskelion Arts, PS 1, The Whitney Museum at Altria and internationally at The Donau Festival in Krems, Austria. In addition to their live work, robbinschilds' video art has exhibited at Vaska Emanouilova Gallery Sofia, Bulgaria; Zendai MoMa Shanghai, China; The New Museum, New York,  NY; Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, Spain; LACE: Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, and was screened in BAM's 2007 Next Wave series. robbinschilds has worked with the art collective Chicks on Speed and collaborated with Brooklyn-based duo Japanther, on the rock spectacle Dinosaur Death Dance commissioned by the Performa 07 festival. In 2008, robbinschilds was commissioned to create original choreography for David Byrne's world concert tour.

3. EVENT: Justin McKeown places HEX on IMOCA

Date: April 2, 2010 for duration of exhibition; Source: Justin McKeown


Good Friday, 2nd April 2010 the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMOCA) will be hosting Blasphemous, a collection of works from a diverse range of artists critically examining relationships between belief, religion, law and artistic freedom of expression. The exhibition is a timely response to the new Irish blasphemy laws. As part of this exhibition artist Justin McKeown will be placing a HEX on IMOCA for the duration of the exhibition. McKeown has been exploring the relationship between art and the occult since 2007 and has produced numerous works on this subject in varying mediums. Commenting on his work choice to put a hex on IMOCA McKeown states:

'I am worried about the way in which fear and superstition have come to dominate many peoples thinking. During the Renaissance we began to develop a scientific approach to the world. We stopped basing our knowledge on fear, we started asking questions that began "what is" instead of the superstitious "what if". Yet since 9/11 we seem to have been making the move back towards decisions based on "what if", thus marking a departure from reason and a return to superstitious fear. One only has to look at the rise in religious and political fundamentalism world wide to realize this. I view the new Blasphemy laws in Ireland as a symptom of this new social condition. For IMOCA I decided to make the work HEX as a means of creating a situation that would challenge the bogeymen that people carry around in their heads. The Gallery has been properly hexed using a ritual derived from the Western mystical tradition. If people believe that curses are real then they have a choice not to enter the exhibition.'

Other artists participating in Blasphemous are: Richard Bartle, George Bolster, Hannah Breslin, Alan Butler, Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Steve Farley, Una Gildea, Sarah Hardacre, Jacinta Jardine, Mark Lomax, Matthew MacKisack, Noël O’Callaghan, RedMeat by Max Cannon, Emer Roberts, Will St. Leger, Kate Walters, Paul Woods.

Tenderpixel Gallery is pleased to present STUFF

Victoria Stanton and Christian Richer


EXHIBITION:  March 17-April 10, 2010

CLOSING EVENT:  April 8, 2010 from 6-9PM


Québec artists Victoria Stanton and Christian Richer will complete an interactive gallery residency and exhibition at Tenderpixel this March and April. Stanton & Richer creatively unite to perform and produce a live installation of drawings and ambient aural textures.


Gallery visitors are invited to bring an object to which to they feel an emotional attachment (from key-ring to crystal goblet). Together, Victoria and guest will discuss the object's history and personal significance. They will also sketch individual and comparative interpretations of the precious object in question. Christian will record, and transform these conversations into atmospheric tape loops, slowly building a soundtrack that accompanies the expanding collection of drawings: Shuffling, recording, sketching, editing, broadcasting and affixing. Christian will also be performing a live set on the Closing event evening on April 8th.  Stanton & Richer's residency at Tenderpixel will culminate in an immersive installation of playful images & evocative sounds: an eclectic collection of 'stuff'.


Christian Richer (Montreal, Canada) is an ambient sound artist who has been steadily researching analogue technologies and the production and dissemination of sound via digitally captured field recordings and magnetic tape. He creates atmospheric ? and at times unsettling ? spaces with, and through, sound.  Christian has released three albums, has composed soundtracks for art videos, short films and has performed his dynamic and captivating ambient sets in Montreal, Ottawa, Washington, Brooklyn, Sardinia and Berlin. http://www.elementkuuda.com


Victoria Stanton (Montreal, Canada) is a performance artist, video-maker, photographer, and writer of fiction, poetry, critical texts, and songs. Her time-based work includes performance for stage, actions in public spaces, and one-on-one, relational encounters in intimate contexts. She has presented performances, interventions, and videos in  

Canada, the U.S., Europe, the U.K., Australia and Japan. Her creative and critical writings have been published in Canadian and American anthologies and art/literary/lifestyle magazines. http://www.bankofvictoria.com

5. EVENT:  Yvonne Rainer lecture

Date: April 12, 2010; Source: e-artnow


The Theatrical. The Performative. The Transformative. is a lecture series introducing key figures whose artistic practice is situated at the intersection of performance art, avant-garde dance, and activist theater.

Where's the Passion, a lecture by Yvonne Rainer


Bartos Theater

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Cambridge, MA, USA


Where's the Passion

Yvonne Rainer made a transition to filmmaking following a fifteen-year career as a choreographer/dancer (1960-1975). Where's the Passion is a lecture in which notions of self-expression, impersonation, and the politics of looking and being looked at are examined, accompanied by documentations of two of her recent performances. 


Yvonne Rainer is a choreographer/dancer, film maker, and a Distinguished Professor of Studio Art at the University of California, Irvine. Her most recent dances are AG Indexical, with a little help from H.M., a re-vision of Balanchine's Agon; RoS Indexical, a re-vision of Nijinsky's Rite of Spring; and a Performa07 commission, Spiraling Down. Her dances have been performed in New York, Los Angeles, Vienna, Helsinki, Kassel, Berlin, and Sao Paolo. A memoir, Feelings Are Facts: a Life, was published by MIT Press in 2006. Rainer is the recipient of two Guggenheim Fellowships, a Wexner Prize and a MacArthur Fellowship. 


The lecture is moderated by Joan Jonas, a pioneer in video and performance art and the 2010 recipient of the Gyorgy Kepes Fellowship Prize, presented by the Council for the Arts at MIT.

7. CALL FOR PAPERS: Performance Research ON TRAUMA
Deadline dates: see below; Source: Performance Research


Volume 16, No. 1 (March 2011) 'On Trauma'
Issue Editors: Mick Wallis and Patrick Duggan


On Trauma
The idea of trauma has become so used in the public sphere as to become almost meaningless in its ubiquity. But this is also to say that we live in an historical moment in which society feels bound to its traumatic experiences. Trauma has become a cultural trope. Just as Raymond Williams explored the possibility of modern tragedy in a dramatised society, we might ask about the artistic figuring of trauma in a traumatised culture. And where Williams identified a contrast between the evacuation of a mass circulation headline and the intensities of loss in everyday life, we might now find a more direct coupling - as did Jameson for instance in his relating the evacuations of postmodern culture to the subjective death of universal anomie.
In this same cultural moment, Western academic, artistic, journalistic, psychiatric, psychoanalytic and cultural discourses, in particular, have become increasingly engaged in analysis of traumata and people’s experience of them. The relatively recent rise in academic interest has galvanised trauma as a frame through which to examine cultural issues of experience, memory, the body, and representation – especially in the fields of history, literature, cultural studies and fine art. But the history and genealogy of modern trauma theory, including the psycho-medical, is littered with narratives and examples which might productively be considered as performative.
Schism has been figured as the foundation both of dramatic narrative and of performance as representation – from Aristotle to Turner, Artaud/Derrida and Phelan. And trauma theory suggests a performative bent in traumatic suffering itself – the trauma-symptom is, after all, a rehearsal, re-presentation, re-performance of the trauma-event. This is not to trivialise traumatic suffering or to detract from the insistence that trauma narratives must be adequately, truthfully, borne witness to so as not to diminish the importance/weight of the original event. Instead, we wish to suggest that trauma theory might be a productive means of exploring performance – and vice versa.
Following the publication of some recent scholarly works in roughly cognate areas, notably Roger Luckhurst’s The Trauma Question (2008) and Christina Wald’s Hysteria, Trauma and Melancholia (2007), this issue of Performance Research interrogates trauma theory and ‘the traumatic’ as both a productive means of thinking about performance experiences and as a potentially potent creative force.
The Issue Editors invite contributions that might address, but need not be limited to, any or all of the following areas:
-trauma as performative intervention
-ethical/ pedagogical issues in addressing trauma through performance
-performing memories / historical re-enactment
-performative histories of trauma
-trauma, embodiment, performance and the subject
-witnessing trauma
-trauma and alterity
-trauma as/and creative processes
-‘post-dramatic’ performance and the collapse of narrative
-trauma-effects - trauma performances and audience witnessing
-open and re-opening wounds
-trauma as guarantee
-performance and trauma therapy
'On Trauma’  invites artists, practitioners and theorists to submit proposals for critical articles, documents, interviews, artist's pages or other forms of contribution which position notions of trauma in relation to the contexts and discourses of contemporary culture, and to expanded and open concepts of performance, performance-making and artwork.

Deadlines for the issue are as follows:
Proposals: 20 April 2010
Draft manuscripts: 5 July 2010
Publication Date: March 2011

ALL proposals, submissions and general enquiries should be sent direct to:

8. WORKSHOPS: Film and Video Installation Design (April 18)
Registration continues; Source: LIFT

Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT)

Registration CONTINUES at our new facility located at 1137 Dupont Street (at Gladstone Avenue) in Toronto.

This season workshops include:
FILM AND VIDEO INSTALLATION DESIGN: Interface Interference (April 18)
This workshop will survey the critical impulse proposed by the moving image installation's occupation of space, rather than time, and in doing so will also unpack strategies of space in expanded cinema and single-screen films. Moving beyond the deployment of film and video installation as a genre trope which forsakes temporality in order to serve a mobile viewership, we will not ask how artists can occupy and access exhibitions sites, but rather, how a reshaping of those same sites can emerge from the projects proposed by the workshop participants.

Deadline date: May 15, 2010; Source: Mariam Magsi


Within This Body

Curated by Mariam Magsi and Faye Mullen

Call for submission for an exhibition of Performance Art at the Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts. PCVA is an artists' cooperative Gallery in existence since 1996, showcasing the work of senior and emerging artists featuring a wide range of traditional and contemporary art.

Much like naturally inclined elements, the human body is a carcass of memories, vices and virtues. Through structural processes that often push boundaries and test endurance, the human body, time and time again, transcends experiences of hurt and agony and transforms them into opportunities for new awareness and self actualization. Similar to other natural forms, the body repairs itself both internally and outwardly through restoration that may appear to test the limitations of the body, hinging on direct endurance systems that have evolved alongside human development. The human entity is known to be a great threshold for resilience, being able to revitalize the experience of pain into scars that hold substantial significance over the person's soul. It is with this constant recycling of pain and pleasure that humanity moves forward, vigorous as ever in its quest to understand human nature. An inherent part of this process is the creation of visible and/or invisible scars. Manifestations of stress on the human body can take many different shapes and forms, physical and spiritual or psychological; however, it is through the body's constant recycling of the negative into the positive, that we gain insight into the agony and the ecstasy of all that is human. 

In accordance with the theme of recycled pain, The Propeller Centre For The Visual Arts invites submissions and proposals from local & international artists for an exhibition of Performance Art to be held on July.18.2010 (Sunday). Proposals should be no longer than two pages in length, with primary focus on endurance and duration. The space outside the immediate entrance of the gallery is also accessible. Please send all submissions to the following address no later than May.15.2010-:

984 Queen Street West
Toronto, ON M6J 1H1
(416) 504-7142

Requirements are as follows: 

-A cheque or money order for $25.00 made out to Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts with each submission
-A written proposal, no longer than 2 pages, outlining your statement, intent and a brief visual description of the piece. Kindly limit your performance to 40 minutes or less.
-Images of recent performances or online links to your work
-C.V and Biography
-Your Technical requirements (Please note that artists are responsible for their own travel costs and are encouraged to apply for assistance from their respective arts councils.)

PCVA will be happy to send a formal letter of invitation to the selected artists; this may be used to secure the necessary assistance.

12. WORKSHOP: Performance Art Studies: Territories (Killeshandra, Ireland)

Dates: May 7-16, 2010; Source: BBB Joannes Deimling


From May 7-16, 2010, Performance Art Studies (PAS) will take place in Ireland, in Killeshandra, Cavan county with the topic "territories". 


Animals within their territories don't know about walls, barricades or barbwires, their living grounds are often simply marked by their own smells. Human territores become more complicated, we need passports, money, flags, national identities and uniforms. History has taught us, that these territories often only exist temporarily. After each war or conflict borders have to be remarked and identities are renewed.


The PAS Workshop in Ireland will deal with the wounds that still exist from the civil war in Ireland, similar to a lot of other European countries. The topic of the workshop will also ask questions about the territories of an artist and his/her work. The relationship between an art piece and its viewer can create barriers, which the artist has to break down, or to build up. The stimulating surroundings of Killeshandra; an extraordinary landscape and an amazing natural environment, will help to find new ways to mark personal, political and artistic territories. The aim of this 10-day intensive workshop is to develop an Art-Performance. Workshop participants will present these new works during a public presentation in the landscape around Killeshandra. 


Workshop Objectives and Strategies 

With the guidance and direction of the workshop facilitator, participants will use a variety of techniques and exercises to focus perception of one’s own personality, develop skills to communicate with the body, and transform ideas into a performative work. Personal perception and experience colour and characterize how we communicate and deal with the body in time and space during performance. The main objective of the workshop is to understand the body as a tool and to use this tool to communicate effectively in performance. Besides this artistical offer the workshop provides some cultural specials. 



- develop an Art Performance with technical, pedagogical and artistic guidance 

- performative exercises in various conditions, in- and outdoor (focus on: body, time, space, concentration, endurance, in groups and individual) 

- final public presentation of the performance (media promotion, poster, mailing) and final celebration 

- video- and photo documentation of the workshop (DVD), 

- documentation on BBB Johannes Deimling’s and other Performance Art related websites 

- contacts to artists, curators and art institutions in Ireland 

- meeting and cooperate with other like-minded people from other countries 

- context of the place, Irish history and culture 

- free accommodation in Killeshandra (10 days) 



- Price: (without travel, food and personal expenses) 400 € (350 £, 575 $, 590CHF, 1600 PLN, 6260 EEK) 

Confirmed registrations before the 1st of April 2010, the workshop will cost: 350 € (308 £, 503 $, 516CHF, 1420 PLN, 5480 EEK)

- teaching language: english 

- during the workshop we will have self supply 

- The workshop is open to all people, both emerging and established performance artists, as well as students (minimum age 18 years) 

- The workshop will take place at least with 8 participants.

disorder itinerary (artists and places are drawing in lots), a night of performance in Theatre des Bernardines, 4 hours of performances in the city, a performance evening in Friche la Belle de Mai, meetings about disorder in public space with town planners, sociologists, psychiatrists, policemen…


The spirit of the 4th edition: Because of the social and political context, insecurity and fear tend to grow up in cities feeding citizen’s inhibition in public spaces. So performances will propose to the audience unexpected experiences, other ways of living together in urban places.


How far we can go in disrupting public space?

Projects can be radical, out of limits, transgressive, subversive.

Projects can explore different relationships to time.


Participation: Every artist proposes a project of performance that can be declined on the different territories of the festival.


Every artist commits to:

Participate to the laboratory about performance in urban space during 3 days.

Perform twice in urban place and once indoors (Bernardines or Friche la Belle de Mai)

Participate to presentation in artists in bars at apero time.

Propose a workshop to the other artists (optional)
