Down at the Twilight Zone
2018 Nuit Blanche, Toronto, Canada
Developed for Nuit Blanche Toronto 2018, 'Down at the Twilight Zone' was a 12-hour performance that looked at the rich histories of LGBTQ2S peoples’ experiences of Toronto’s nightlife.
Featuring performance, music, dance, videos, readings and interviews, and taking it’s cue from one of the many amazing Toronto clubs, Offeh’s project was a collaboration between artist and audience, and a celebration of Toronto’s queer nightlife. Part archive of Queer histories, part performance, the project aimed to encompass and go beyond club culture to celebrate and explore Toronto’s broader Queer nightlife from the 1950’s to the present day.
