Silt: Freshwater Edition

Silt is an evening of performance. Through a public open call, five artists are each provided with 15 minutes to present an action, event, or performance. Silt was originally started for movement artists and performance artists; however, it is open to everyone regardless of artistic or personal identifications. The aim of Silt is to provide participants with an accessible low stakes stage for experimentation and expression. 


This edition of Silt will be held in the back of Press Vinyl Cafe, a record store on the Danforth in the East end of Toronto. The space has a small stage and provides minimal technical support. 


Performers are currently selected by members of the Tuya Vale Artist Collective ( with the aim to encourage multiplicity and contrast. We do our best to provide opportunities to everyone who expresses interest. Video documentation will be provided upon request. 


Silt is free to attend.


Silt is determined to be a monthly occurrence.
