Performance
PENTAGRAM – revisit by Gustaf Broms
2024

To sit here in Sweden on a cold quiet winter night, hearing the street sounds, of Toronto 2013, echo amongst the trees, something uncanny, something exciting. The past, always a contrast?

In this new video work, Broms returns to his 2013 performance entitled Pentagram, performed on the streets of Toronto 10 years ago.

Performance Yellow

This fragrance opens us to the question, has the show started? It's winter, the theatre is colder than the street and the room is filled with people and all their winter smells: wet faux leather, down, too much shampoo, and beer breath. The atmosphere is a trickster. Am I late, am I early?
