Long Winter Announces 8th season and kick-off event

Long Winter, Toronto’s annual all-ages, pay-what-you-can inter-arts series returns for its eighth year. This season’s festivities will kick off November 22nd at Tranzac, featuring musical performances by DJ/ Producer Raf Reza, ‘soft, pink, punk’ act Pretty Matty, ZOE, R&B artist R.Flex and more. As is tradition for the seasonal specific event, Long Winter will transform the Tranzac into an immersive, collaborative environment featuring the Memory Palace Project by Toronto-based installation artist Victoria Wang, an interactive Nintendo tarot reading by Trevor Dunseith, live drawing by sonny bean, a dance piece by Dequan Clarke, and a drag performance by Deus Sex Machina. In addition to the Toronto season launch, for the first time, Long Winter will present a free showcase at M for Montreal in partnership with the City of Toronto to collaborate with Montreal arts and event participants featuring performances by  Sydanie, Tremayne, Charlie Noiir and Maky Lavender. The co-showcase follows Long Winter’s first-ever international bi-city collaboration with co-presenters Collectif MU at La Station-Gare des Mines in Paris, France. Their September 20-21, 2019 festival and conference featured over 15 Toronto musical acts and artwork, alongside a Paris-based roster. Full program available here. LONG WINTER PARIS marked the first of two cross-national co-presentations, with the second being hosted in Toronto in November 2020 as kick-off to Long Winter’s 2020-2021 season. Details and 2019-2020 event dates and venues listed below.
