Toronto: February, 2006

In February 2006, PCC was in Toronto!

Direct link to the Toronto PCC Conference

In an exciting first-ever collaboration, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (Rhubarb! Festival of New Works), the Theatre Centre (Free Fall) and Harbourfront Centre will be co-hosting the Toronto gathering, February 2-4, 2006, with performances, events and panel discussions held at all three venues.

The Toronto conference will focus on the question, “Where Are the Artists?” With the focus squarely on the artists and creators, the sessions in Toronto will explore the state of performance creation within broader artistic, cultural, political and social practices. Artists, creators and presenters from a wide range of locations, disciplines and traditions will gather to discuss such topics as: alternative models for new work development; the physical and metaphoric structures within which artists work; the position of the artist and artistic practice in contemporary culture; the politics of performance creation; and, the state of queer performance today. Fantastic “5 Minute Soapboxes” will be back and happening throughout the meeting.  

A great combo of international, national and local creators, producers and presenters will be on hand to meet and mingle for three fabulous, friendly days.
