Future Leisure
Midnight Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19

Escape is a one on one interactive performance delivered via phone and lasting approximately 30 mins. Beginning with a series of text messages, the work ends with a final monologue heard via phone call, while the participant watches a video online. Exploring themes of escapism, psychogeography, corporeality and the dissociation from the body that comes with an increase of online interaction, this work is an individualized experience taking place between midnight and 3:00am. 


The participant signs up for a specific timeslot. It’s late at night, and they must be at home when the moment comes. They text the designated number “I want to escape.”

No Judgement! 
Samantha Chaulk
3:00 - 6:00pm Saturday, September 19

Participants will leave this workshop with practical tools for coming up with ideas, doing initial performance explorations and nurturing their desire to create. Too often, we kill our creativity by exposing it to judgement too early in the process. Fun, on-your-feet, “don’t think” improv exercises will be combined with introspective visioning techniques to help the artist work freely, impulsively and intuitively, so they may pull their piece up from deep within themselves and not let the intellect interfere with the birth of their idea.
