Performatorium


January in Saskatchewan is a time of opposition - warm/cool/hot/cold, covered and bare, darkness and brightness; exposed and protected, wet and dry, freeze and thaw, accumulation and removal; inside and outside, safety and risk. It is after all winter, an oft dreaded season on the Canadian Prairies, when natural and unnatural elements converge to create dramatic scenarios and relationships - extreme, spectacular, sensational, sensual, beautiful and dangerous. What better time to present a festival of performance that draws its inspiration from a season of transformation in which all living things must adapt to survive? Performatorium - Queer City Cinema's 3rd edition of queer performance, not unlike Winter / (S)Hiver, presents works that address physical and mental challenges : struggle, peril, tribulation, vulnerability and ultimately the reclamation of human physicality - the body.

UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED, ALL PERFORMANCES AT NEUTRAL GROUND - 1856 SCARTH ST. 2ND FLOOR

ALL PERFORMANCES are rated RESTRICTED (R) (People under the age of 18 will not be granted entrance)
