The third annual Performatorium: Festival of Queer
Performance will take place January 16 to 18, 2013 in the city of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Performatorium is a festival of live performance by international, national and local performance artists.
Performatorium continues the exploration of performance as another means from which to gather insight and appreciation of queer art and queer artists. Performatorium, for now, utilizes a theme or focus which helps to create a shared space of exploration and underlines connections and considerations created by the curatorial premise or theme.
International in scope, Performatorium 3 will present workby performing artists who incorporate aspects of: spirituality, transformation, transcendance, ritual, ecstasy, artifice, persona and alter-ego.
These works will act as a means to express and playfully analyze subjects that include – but not limited to – gender, the body, sexuality, identity, and the creative process itself.
Artists are expected to be in Regina for the entire three day festival and will/may participate in Community Engagement
Activities that may include artist talks, a round table discussion, workshops mentored by one or more of the guest artists, and post performance chats.
All artists will receive an artist fee(s), travel to and from Regina, accommodations and a per diiem.
