    //Land Hunger//
    Land Hunger is a feminist, clown eco-satire of settler colonial nation-state building. Playing with the genre of early 20th-century silent films, it looks at the ways that gendered histories of domestication in Canada were foundational for colonization and are still viscerally haunting the present.

    //Pulling at the Seams Music Video//
    The focal point of the collaboration, Pulling at the Seams was shot recently in June and prominently features masks designed by Alexandra Simpson (Animacy). The song is about feeling helpless in the face of the oppressive forces of capitalism and the struggle to turn that feeling of helplessness into a will to fight for a better world.

    Parade is an experimental pop-rock trio based out of Toronto, Ontario and featuring Stefan Hegerat (Drums, compositions), Chris Pruden (Synthesizers) and Laura Swankey (Voice, electronics). Drawing on their diverse backgrounds in jazz, classical, and electronic music, the trio pushes the boundaries of genre and form by blurring the lines between improvisation and composition.

    //Animacy Theatre Collective//
    Animacy Theatre Collective is a five time Dora nominated and Dora award winning theatre company based in Toronto. Animacy is the work of the physical theatre duo Morgan Brie Johnson and Alexandra Simpson and is focused on the creation of original, experimental and interdisciplinary theatre works. We tell intersectional feminist stories that use humor and physical storytelling to raise social awareness and create characters who slither across pre-existing borders (human, nonhuman, gender, sexuality).
