In conjunction with FADO’s on-going International Visiting Artist series, we invite local performance artists to participate in a new networking initiative. This is a chance for you to come meet international visiting artists in person, and talk to them (and a few of your local colleagues) about your work. To this end, FADO proposes DOCUDRAMA, an informal evening where up to 10 local artists can meet to talk about their work and show up to 10 minutes of documentation. Space is limited and we want to keep the sessions limited, therefore participants must reserve their spot in advance.
In this DOCUDRAMA, local artists are invited to present short talks about their work in the presence of Thai artist and curator Chumpon Apisuk, who will be visiting Toronto with various representatives of EMPOWER and 5 – 6 Kumjing dolls. EMPOWER’s project of migrant dolls will be exhibited at the Global Village (Metro Toronto Convention Centre) as part of the XVI International AIDS Conference taking place in Toronto August 13–18, 2006. EMPOWER’s visit is assisted by the Toronto Sex Worker group, Stella.
