A round up of the best/weirdest things to do this weekend in Toronto…
Friday February 17th
STOPTALKING began in 2009 as a loosely outlined gathering place for a small number of local emerging artisits of many disciplines to give a unique evening of entertainment. Now in it’s seventh instalment and taking place this Friday at the White House Studio (277.5 Augusta Ave.), the event has been refined, with more focus on audience participation, and the artists have the benefit of an expanded stage space. The night will feature storytelling, poetry, confessionals, stand-up comedy, performance art, personal letters, and skits.
