Part of Summer 2016

Whether through spectatorial engagement or physical interactions, we learn how to express ourselves through performance and manipulation as invisible influences create lasting and tangible effects in our bodies, words, and actions. As we grow and build our identities, we find ourselves growing to become less like putty and more like chewy taffy. Ruminating on the malleability of self, Elastic Resistance explores how our physical and mental aspects are pliable, sticky, and permanent sites of negotiation.

In partnership with Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival, Pleasure Dome presents a collection of queer artists’ film and video works that play with and against one another to assert a certain plasticity of self that must traverse the intricacy of memory, skin, and even medium.
