7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art

Organized by the Toronto Performance Art Collective

The Theatre Centre, 1115 Queen St. West
October 2–7, 2018

The Toronto Performance Art Collective is pleased to announce the 12th 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art, taking place from October 2 – 7, 2018 at the Theatre Centre and Sur Gallery. Since 1997, the biennial 7a*11d festival has specialized in offering the kind of absorbing and innovative performance work that you have to be there to fully appreciate. Once again we are proud to bring there here, as we celebrate our 21st year with a roster of 21 amazing artists packed into 6 intensive days of activities.

This year’s highlights include progressive and provocative works that give voice to beauty, humour, perseverance and intimacy in the face of human struggle. From the mystery of shadow puppets to the delicacy of private, one-on-one interactions; from spectacular eruptions of queer, dissenting and displaced identities to the epic glory of the everyday made strange; from thoughtful probings of place and history to the joyful and challenging maneuvers of forging new visions of community, 7a*11d promises to excite, engage and inspire local audiences.
