International Festival of Performance Art

XPACE Cultural Centre is one of the participating venues in the 8th biennial International Festival of Performance Art. The festival launches Thursday and runs October 21 – 31, 2010. This is Toronto’s only performance art festival, and the latest incarnation features artists from all over the world. The festival hosts performance art events, panel discussions, video/performance screenings and workshops in 11 jam-packed days at locations mostly in western downtown Toronto, including the nearby Gladstone Hotel.

XPACE offers primetime performances Thursday October 28-30 starting at 8PM. The festival closing panel is also at XPACE on October 31 at 2PM. All details are on the festival website, and events are free, PWYC or $10 at most. For that low a price, you are getting the chance to see some things you will not normally see. My browsing through the schedule found a man who balances heavy objects and a woman whose intense physical performances explore environmental crises. That is 2 out of many! Should be interesting!
