Café Concret: An Experimental Puppetry Cabaret

This event is a part of the series Animate Entities: Objects in Performance. How do objects move in the space and time of live performance? What is the allure of animating ordinary or extraordinary things? How do performances transform the material world? Join us this March for two days of talks, exhibitions, screenings, and cabarets.

Animate Entities: Objects in Performance is sponsored by the Jackman Humanities Institute's Program for the Arts, with support from the Puppet Slam Network; Great Small Works; the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies; University College; the Department of Art; the Department of Visual Studies (UTM); the Department of English and Drama (UTM); the Cinema Studies Institute; the Centre for Comparative Literature; the Graduate Architecture, Landscape and Design Students Union; and the Art Museum at the University of Toronto.
