Spectacle in Concert moderated by Andrew Pulsifer


With Jonny Dovercourt, Roxanne Ignatius, and Aaron Dawson.

Over the past few years, it seems Toronto is moving away from the general “rock show” where three or four bands play sets of music for a riveted audience. Artists are adding more visual and theatrical elements to their sets, and the audience keeps expecting more. This conversation aims to find out whether or not this kind of spectacle is sustainable for a thriving music scene, whether the spectacle is necessary or if the music can speak for itself.

This event is part of The Conversations. In our continued desire to promote investigation through performance, we have programmed a series of public conversations that ask artists to engage in discussion around aspects of performance practice. All conversations are free and open to the public, who are invited to listen, participate, and come and go as they please.
