The TouVA Collective is a Montreal-based performance art trio founded by Sylvie Tourangeau, Victoria Stanton and Anne Bérubé. TouVA has been researching the practice of performance through multiple frameworks and approaches. Explore our relational/site-specific performances, dynamic artist talks, and workshops.

Couverture - 7e sensThe 7th Sense:
Practicing Dialogues / Practicing Workshops / Practicing the Daily Performative / Practicing Performance Art

Comprised of essays, a glossary, as well as contributions by 30 contemporary performance artists, The 7th Sense surveys the performative in, with and through language. It explores a vocabulary as a process of naming, and of articulating what happens before, during and after a performative action; to express what is experienced by the artist who proposes a work, and by the audience who receives it.

The TouVA collective presents a series of reflections which are to be understood in relationship to their artworks, and to the workshops that Sylvie Tourangeau, Victoria Stanton and Anne Bérubé have both taken or facilitated. Three practitioners’ voices offer multiple perspectives, plural yet singular, to consider the performative as an art, or as a way of life; they delineate a kind of pathway that invites the emergence and recognition of an increased sensibility in this vibrant and fleeting performative: a 7th Sense.
