Originating in Montreal, QC in spring 2021 in response to COVID restrictions for theatres, Lots of Love-LOL Fest is a series of live art performances created for backyards, alleyways, parks, garages, and other non-traditional locations, activated for a specific neighbourhood.

For SummerWorks, the Lots of Love Fest team is traveling with some of the works from the original edition, as well as teaming up local Toronto curators and artists to activate spaces  in the Junction neighbourhood. You are invited to engage with multiple pop-up performances over a 4-hour period. The work is meant to be enjoyed at your own speed, come and go as you please.

Secret location will be shared via email at least 24 hours in advance.

Curators: Sasha Kleinplatz, Liliane Moussa, Emile Pineault, Sarah Williams, Syreeta Hector 

Creators: Ritmo Falmenco, Chris Thornborrow, Ashley Colours Perez, Diego Gil, Maria Kefirova, Justin de Luna, Michael Martini, Lara Oundjian, Melina Stinson

 


This project is made possible in part by support from the Toronto Arts Council’s Animating Streets Initiative.

The artists also wish to acknowledge the support of POP Montreal, Circuit Est, Celine Bureau, Studio 303 and Produit Rien.


Part of the Public Works programming – bringing artists and audiences together in the public sphere to experience our city in new ways.
