GHOST DAYS by Terrance Houle in collaboration with Simla Civelek

Sunday / Aug 13 / 17
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Theatre Centre
1115 Queen Street West, Toronto

Created and Performed by Terrance Houle
In collaboration with Simla Civelek

Presented in partnership with FADO Performance Art Centre

Evoking our colonial and non-colonial histories that exist in the light of night as in the darkness of the day, GHOST DAYS awakens a collaboration with artists, audience, and spirit. Internationally celebrated performance artist Terrance Houle will work in residence overnight at the Theatre Centre throughout the festival, culminating in a final performance that combines video, performance, photography, and music to conjure spirits and ghosts as audience and collaborators.

Terrance Houle is in residence at SummerWorks as part of the SummerWorks Lab–a place for exploration, experimentation, and process, allowing us to support work in early stages and create connections between audiences and artists.
