The OBJECTO Festival
of Experimental Puppetry and Object Performance
is a larger party version of our regular cabarets. Our next festival is OCTOBER 13 & 14 2023 at the TRANZAC in Toronto. Join us!
OBJECTO Fest is a festival held in Toronto to celebrate experimental performing objects and material performance. In keeping with the spirit of our Concrete Cabaret shows, we welcome short acts and works-in-progress that challenge theatrical norms and our understanding of objects and inanimacy as well as performances that address current social, political, and artistic issues. We prioritize performances and acts from peoples and groups that are underrepresented in the theatre and live performance community. The festival hopes to expand our Concrete Cabaret mission to act as a catalyst for community building between performers and audiences, creating a commonality around experimentation, performing objects and food, all with an accessible ticket price!
We'd love you to get involved. We welcome performance proposals, format suggestions, wacky ideas, volunteers, ushers, cheap art submissions and more. Get in touch via our contact page here or on the OBJECTO website!
OBJECTO is graciously funded by the Toronto Arts Council
