Dear Artists,

As most of you already know, Intersection Project is extremely proud to be part of Rhubarb Festival, as an opening and closing event for the festival (Feb16th-Feb27th 2011).

Please visit the following link to know all details about the festival:

***For this special occasion, we are excited to invite you to register to one or both dates as a performer. Read carefully the details below, as this special edition for Intersection Project involves slight changes and differences compared to our previous performances.

***We are still looking for one videographer and one photographer for the Wednesday performance, Feb 16th. If you know people interested, please refer them to us!


Driven by the success of May 1st 2010 Public Performance in Toronto, organized in conjunction with Montreal artist Normand Marcy and Tangente, Laboratoire de Mouvement Contemporain, Priscilla Guy and Kate Nankervis are launching Intersection Project, an initiative that aims to highlight the presence of artists in urban landscapes. Through pedestrian and simple movement vocabulary in city landscapes, the dance is accessible and belongs to anyone who is walking by. Bodies become organic sculptures against urban architectures.

The performances organized by Intersection Project are opportunities for artists and audiences to meet in unexpected and unofficial settings; a reminder performance art also lives outside theatres. Art is essential and it lives everywhere we decide to allow for it. Art reflects the common needs and wants members of society share. Intersection Project is an occasion to re-iterate the spontaneous and engaging nature of art as performance emerges from urban architectures and melt with the city landscapes.
