The New Embassy: Creativity in Collective Solitude
Originally aired on April 28
Re-release July 07
Inspired by Toronto’s renowned, historic Bohemian Embassy, meet a new generation of artists inspiring Canada’s ever-evolving literary scene at The New Embassy: a digital mini-series of spoken word, poetry, prose, theatrical readings, music and dance.
Curated by Lebanese Canadian actor, writer and producer Yousef Kadoura, this final event in The New Embassy series reflects on the idea of collective solitude: finding community in the shared experiences, challenges and environments in which disabled and Mad artists live and create.
Presented as part of the CoMotion Festival, join musician and artist Tallan M.D., Montreal-based actor and playwright Silvae Mercedes, visual and performance artist Max Ferguson and playwright Jessica Watkin for this inspiring, multidisciplinary event. ASL interpretation and captioning will be provided.
This event will take place virtually. This event will be available to watch from Thursday, July 7 to Wednesday, July 13 as part of a special release to celebrate Canadian artists.
