Central & Remote: February 17th – 19th

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.

STOPATALKING7 boasts a roster of 20 performers including Henri Fabergé, Michelle Kuran, Graham Scheidt, Guillaume Morissette, Dan Epstein, and Marisa Houcka. For the full listing check out the site here. The event is pay-what-you-can and starts at 9PM. There will be a merch table set up, so bring along a few extra bones if you have them.

About Yuli Scheidt

Yuli was born at the exact moment in 1986 when the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded and rained down on the ocean. As a child she believed this meant she was destined for greatness in the realm of space travel and radioastronomy. Nothing remotely as awesome as that has happened so far. Instead Yuli, at the age of 18, relocated from Calgary to Ottawa where she studied photography, life sciences and graphic design before moving to Toronto. [More by Yuli]
