DO YOU KNOW THIS PLACE? @ Crapshoot, produced by Art is Hard for Theatre Passe Muraille
May 6 2018

My new-in-development piece of site-specific promenade theatre called DO YOU KNOW THIS PLACE? is invited to be a part of Crapshoot, a performance art scavenger hunt in the neighbourhood around TPM. For more on Art is Hard, Crapshoot, and the TPM Residency, check this out

DO YOU KNOW THIS PLACE? is conceived by Kendra Jones, and written/performed by Justin Otto, Liz Whitbread, and Kendra Jones

As of 2014, 51% of Toronto’s residents were born outside Canada. This means that the majority of people
in the city have a first memory of the city itself, coming to the city to visit or live for the first time. In the time
since these first visits, the city’s physical and social landscape has changed considerably. Neighbourhoods
which were once edgy are commercial, areas which were once forlorn industrial parks are now vibrant
neighbourhoods. The imprint of the history of each part of the city remains, as we rush forward in time,
constantly developing, changing, and experiencing the city.

DO YOU KNOW THIS PLACE? is a one on one walking experience that uses the busy city street as a character.
