Three years ago, William Ellis and Jordan Tannahill took over a barbershop in Toronto’s Kensington Market and turned into an incredible queer arts hub. Today, they announced that the upcoming season of programming will be its last.
Located at 187 Augusta Avenue in the Market, Videofag is self-described as “a storefront cinema and performance lab in toronto’s kensington market dedicated to the creation and exhibition of video, film, new media, and live art.”
“It’s really crazy,” Ellis said. “Karen Hines’ new show Crawlspace in September is going to be pretty incredible. New Fries will be doing a residency in October and we’ll also have an exhibition curated by Ken Moffatt and Heather Bain. There will be an exhibition of new work by Lido Pimienta. Chad Dembski, Rob Kempson and Jesse LaVercombe are all presenting new theatre pieces. We will also have Montreal choreographer Dana Michel working here. And that’s just the next couple of months.”
