I am delighted to announce that I will be presenting a durational and site-specific performance piece during the New Performance Turku Festival this October 2017: Canadian Silence (yes, indeed, as part of the current iteration of the Doing Nothing project!)

New Performance Turku Festival is an international festival for performance and live art, organized annually around Turku, Finland – this year between October 6-8th.

The festival showcases the most interesting phenomena in performance and Live Art. This year the themes are political performance and site-specifity – in the beginning of October a range of top artists will take over the urban city space, as well as performance spaces and galleries.
