About the Artists
Maylee Todd is a multimedia artist, consultant, musician and curator based in Toronto. Her creativity derives from a wide range of artistic disciplines: songwriting, production, performance art, dance, digital collage, 3-D projection mapping, installation and curation. Todd's themes are inspired by science fiction, human development, psychology and unconventional thinking. She is known for her Virtual Womb show which has toured internationally for Tokyo’s Billboard Live, Fringe Manila and across Canada. She released her third self-produced record Acts Of Love, which has glowing reviews from CBC, NPR, Vogue Japan, and Okay Player.
Maylee Todd's Virtual Womb is a multimedia experience that includes projections, live video feed, dancing, installation, 3-D projection mapping and live music. Audience members walk through a large vulva installation and experience a live multimedia performance containing visual projections, harp, electronics, samplers, dancers and a small orchestra. Virtual Womb is a place of gestation, meditation, rebirth, and deprogramming. Where birth and death are one of the same. A place with no past and there is no fear of the future. A portal into another dimension.
Rosina Kazi and Nicholas Murray are LAL, the Toronto-based protest electronic duo that has built a career out of daring audiences to be their best selves, loudly. Coming from the worlds of hip hop, punk and experimental music, LAL blends those influences into the smoothest, richest shake that will enliven the mind, body and soul. Their beats and melodies can charm the most cynical club head, softening them up so that the lyrics of anger, sadness and possibility can worm their way deep inside.
