This facilitated community convening as a guided open forum asks how performance award categories might better acknowledge artistic practices that move beyond gender binaries of "Outstanding Performance - Female" and "Outstanding Performance - Male". Using Toronto's Dora Mavor Moore Awards as the conversation starter, an invited panel of speakers will help unpack the tactic of gender fluidity and equality beyond issues of representation and identity politics. What new aesthetic and political possibilities are generated for directors, designers, and actors in rehearsal and performance? How might critics and juries take such opportunities and possibilities into account? Audiences participation will be strongly encouraged during this discussion.
This community convening is part of Beyond Representation – Cultural Diversity as Theatrical Practice
"Beyond Representation" is a three day symposium hosted by Modern Times as part of the company's "Postmarginal" project, which explores how cultural diversity can become completely integrated into theatre creation.
