Ephemeral Artifacts

Hosted by Theatre Passe Muraille


Theatre Passe Muraille - Backspace, 16 Ryerson Avenue, Toronto, ON, M5T 2P3, Canada

This edition of Ephemeral Artifacts is conceived as a 4 channel video, light and sonic installation on the outside of our historic building — and features Tap Dancer Travis Knights in a sustained state of reflection and gratitude toward The DaNcE* and the people who helped to shape it with their passion.

In doing so, this edition of Ephemeral Artifacts draws from ĀNANDAṀ’s interdisciplinary practices, and moves the “body” to the exterior of the Theatre Passe Muraille building, a venue with a history and commitment to alternative theatre that reaches beyond spaces, even during its absence.

This is an outdoor installation — The TPM building will turn into an outdoor installation, illuminated every night from June 24-26 from 9:30pm – 11:00pm. There are no tickets or registration required to view it. We strongly encourage visitors to keep safe distances and follow public health & safety protocols as dictated by the province.


ASL Interpretation by Thurga Kanagasekarampillai, Marcia Adolphe Martins, and Emma Dehez is available for Ephemeral Artifacts via the audience’s smartphones (with gratitude to our Deaf Community Consultant Dr. Jenelle Rouse.)
