About the Artist

Johanna Householder has been working at the intersection of popular and unpopular culture in performance, dance, video and intermedia art since the late 1970s. As a member of the notorious feminist performance ensemble The Clichettes in the 80s, she helped re-establish lip sync as a viable medium for cultural critique. She has recently performed at Performancear o Mourir in Chihuahua, Mexico; at undisclosed territory in Java; M:ST in Calgary; and Art Nomade in Chicoutimi, QC. She is a founder of the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art. With Tanya Mars, she co-edited Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women (2004), and More Caught in the Act (2016), and with Selma Odom contributed to Renegade Bodies: Canadian Dance in the 1970s (2012). She teaches at OCAD University.

This performance is part of a series of new commissions and performances presented in conjunction with Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries, 1971 - 1989.
