Sweat Shorts

Participatory performance at 8-11 Gallery, Toronto

April 11, 2015

Sweat Shorts was a one-day event comprised of a series of 20-minute storytelling sessions with the artist in a cedar sauna (built by artist Sean Procyk) in a Chinatown backyard in Toronto. Stories prompted by body marks - tattoos, moles, bruises, or otherwise - were encouraged. The conversations in the sauna were recorded, and will be used as the as the basis for a new collection of fictional short stories to be released in late 2015.
