Fado is proud to present TIME ZONES, an artist residency project with internationally acclaimed Cuban artists Glenda León and Tania Bruguera.

Organized by artist/curator Tagny Duff, Time Zones will offer León and Bruguera the chance to create new works that further their reflections and engagement with time, the commute in-between citizenship and nationhood, and the flight between corporeal and virtual spaces. Bruguera and León begin the residency in Montreal as part of the 6th Mois de la Performance, hosted by La Centrale , followed by two weeks in Toronto under the auspices of Fado and sponsored by the Ontario College of Art and Design in conjunction with the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art.

About VIGILANTES -the dream of reason creates monsters-

For VIGILANTES, Bruguera will commute weekly between Chicago and Canada (first to Montreal and then to Toronto), using these trips as an opportunity to perform for the unsuspecting audience of her fellow travelers. She will also present unannounced performance actions in Toronto.

In conjunction with the residency, Bruguera will produce a booklet that compiles images and experiences associated with the project, including the texts of four talks that she will present (two in Montreal and two in Toronto). Each talk will visit a text by one of the following performance artists:

1- Allan Kaprow
2- Adrian Piper
3- Vito Acconci
4- Francys Alys

Bruguera describes the work in this way:

VIGILANTES -the dream of reason creates monsters- will be a series of performances dealing with the relationship between ethics and desire; with the tension that can be found in a state of emotional vigilia, which is the state between being awake and asleep. Each piece will have several layers of appreciation, either from the position of the audience or of their level of boldness. These will be pieces that talk about the false strength and the hidden fragility.

About EVERY STEP IS A SHAPE OF TIME

For the Toronto portion of her residency, León will develop a new audio-based performative installation called Every Step is a Shape of Time. The piece premieres at OCAD on October 29. This work invites the public to create individual and collective aural experiences generated in the lag time between walking and listening.

León writes:

Every step we make is a small yet important instant in our lives. The direction, the speed, the decision to make one step or a sequence of them can take us to certain events or move us away from them. The sound amplification of this daily act is a way to make us reflect upon and notice infinite possibilities sculpted through time. Listening to our own footsteps is metaphorically linked to the act of listening to ourselves. Where are we going? How are we walking on this path we have chosen? In fact, have we chosen this path we are walking? I believe these are questions worth asking, however, they are ones not easily answered.

FIVE HOLES: Listen!
Featuring Erika DeFreitas, Linda Rae Dornan, Eric Létourneau, So-Yeon Park, and Jed Speare
All events Free

Eric Létourneau - STANDARD III
October 21, 2004, 9:30 pm (approx - following other 7a*11d performances)
XPACE, 303 Augusta Ave.
Performance followed by a discussion with Eric Létourneau
Presented in conjunction with the 5th 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art

Eric Létourneau's "manoeuvre" STANDARD III began as a two-hour uninterrupted nationwide radio broadcast on Radio-Canada on April 11, 2004 (Easter). The program featured 198 30-second periods of radio silence punctuated by an alphabetical listing of every country in the world. The same phrase introduced each silence: "Thirty seconds of silence for domestic and foreign political victims..." This broadcast was recorded live off the airwaves and remixed for publication on two CDs along with a text that considers the effects of administrative regulation and State control on mass media.

Beginning in October 2004, copies of the publication will be sent through diplomatic channels to each country of the world. On the occasion of each country's national celebration, its head of state will be contacted to verify the receipt and subsequent response to the CD. This process and the reactions it generates will be recorded on the websites of Fado Performance Inc.and Systeme Minuit ( http://www.systememinuit.com ). The documentation collected, including all diplomatic correspondence, will eventually be published in book form.

So-Yeon Park - INTER-FAITH CHANTING
Project postponed to January, 2005

This series considers acts of "listening" as they are carried out by and impact upon physical, social, political and spiritual bodies. Linda Rae Dornan presents herself as a solitary figure, sitting quietly in the city, listening -- encouraging us to also stop for a moment to hear what we normally ignore. Erika DeFreitas offers her presence for a one-on-one exercise of listening as a way of locating the self. Jed Speare lobbies the city for a quiet zone that would serve as an area of sound awareness. So-Yeon Park assembles chanters from various cultures to direct their voices toward individual participants' wishes as a way of channeling transformative energy. Eric Létourneau evokes silence as a way of marking and remembering all of the world's victims of political persecution in a multi-layered project that interrogates the role of the State and of mass media in silencing "silence" itself.

Travel support for this series comes from the New Brunswick Arts Board and the University of Kansas.

Admission: $3/night

We're baaaaack. Toronto's only international performance art festival opens on October 20 for 12 jam-packed days of progressive and provocative new performance works, interactive experiences, exhibitions, artist talks, panel discussions, our d2d (direct to documentation) video program, a publication launch and other surprise events. For our fifth full-scale festival -- still grassroots but more ambitious than ever -- we offer up a stellar list of live performances by established and emerging contemporary artists from the UK, Spain, Finland, Indonesia, the Philippines, Chile, Cuba, the USA and across Canada.

Produced by a not-for-profit collective of artists since 1997, 7a*11d's purpose is to offer a professional showcase for performance works that fall outside the traditional boundaries of established genres (theatre, dance, music etc.). We are dedicated to representing a wide range of work, and are committed to presenting both the breadth and depth of performance art as a genre.

Improvisors, peace-makers, trouble-takers, noise-makers, infiltrators, disseminators, cogitators ... and mess-makers ... will all be in evidence at this year's festival, from the thoughtful activism of Cheryl l"Hirondelle, Reverend Billy and Mideo M. Cruz to the wry humour of Joanne Bristol, John Marriott or Esther Ferrer. From the Toronto premiere of the world-touring Compagnie PME's "Unrehearsed Beauty" (directed by Toronto experimental theatre veteran Jacob Wren) to Tamara Paris and Matt Fontaine's durational mediation on "The Art of Sexual Home Improvement", from the intensity of Melati Suryodarmo's EXERGY -- butter dance to the surreal improvisations of Songs of the New Erotics, 7a*11d presents works that suggest the limitless possibilities of performance.

Deadline: not given; Source: Instant Coffee

Fresh Ground
Up to five new Canadian works
New Harbourfront Centre $100,000 Arts Commissioning Programme for Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration

William J.S. Boyle, Chief Executive Officer of Harbourfront Centre, has announced the launch of Fresh Ground, an exciting new programme in which Harbourfront Centre has committed $100,000 to commission up to five new Canadian works. Established to stimulate cross-disciplinary creativity, Fresh Ground is a highlight in Harbourfront Centre’s celebration of its 30th anniversary of showcasing contemporary culture. The programme expands on the Centre’s three decades of fostering Canadian creativity and cultural invention.

“We are extremely excited about Fresh Ground and feel it is very fitting to introduce this programme during such a celebratory year,” said William Boyle. “Harbourfront Centre strives to be a catalyst in the creation of new artistic work across Canada by fostering collaborations between different art forms, disciplines and generations. Some of the most creative and fascinating work being produced across the country today is the result of artists working in different ways and through non-traditional collaborations. We all feel very proud to be able to directly assist in the creation of new interdisciplinary work through an initiative like Fresh Ground.”

To qualify for one of the five commissions, each with a maximum award of $20,000, applicants must be professional artists, a Canadian or landed immigrant and must fulfill the criteria of creating a new, collaborative work which incorporates more than one discipline or field. The work must be original, never before presented or performed and ready for presentation or installation at Harbourfront Centre in the 2005-2006 season.

Fresh Ground is made possible by the generosity of several individual donors who have been active in assisting in the creation of new Canadian art works, including: James D and Margaret Fleck, Sonja and Michael Koerner, Judy and Wil Matthews, Gretchen and Donald Ross.

Full criteria for qualification and instructions for applicants can be found at the Harbourfront Centre website, www.harbourfrontcentre.com/callforsubmissions, or by calling the Harbourfront Centre Fresh Ground line at 416 973-4216.
