Letter from the Board of Directors
2014 in Review
The summer of 2014 marked our first full year as co-Artistic Directors. Now that we are firmly rooted into hub’s ground we are excited to look forward as this season marks hub14’s 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
Founded in 2004 by Meagan O’Shea, Ame Henderson, Jen Johnson and Sally Morgan, hub has seen many talented artists walk through its doors and roll on its floors. Through these 10 years, hub has remained an independent, artist-run champion of incubation and development for performing art works.
BIG PLANS are underway to celebrate this milestone.
SAVE THE DATES: Friday, April 24th, Saturday the 25th and Sunday the 26th 2015!
There will be more info to come but, for now, we’re busy into the preparations. If you have ever rehearsed, performed or taught classes at hub, stay tuned for more communication from us in the coming weeks; we want you to be a part of this celebration!
We hope your year was rewarding, challenging and productive and that you are ready to jump into the New Year full of vim and vigor! We know we are.

2014 IN REVIEW
Culture Days @ hub
This year saw an expansion of our presence in the Toronto and Canadian art scene. For Culture Days, we opened our doors and our hearts and invited the community into hub to chat, eat popcorn and watch dance movies all night long.
“I gotta say, even though it’s full of cheese, Centre Stage is a really good movie.”

Nuit Blanche x hub14
On October 4th, kate nankervis & Futuretalk brought “(in)finite reflections v4” to hub14. From 8pm to 4am, people were able to walk in and experience a durational installation with a rotating cast of dancers, including Christine Birch, Irvin Chow, Zeena Dontiwalla, Kiri Figueiredo, Andrew Hartley, Elke Schroeder, Marlowe Porter, Joseph Hinds and Vanessa Kimmons.
Co-Artistic Director Aria Evans has started to interview some of our residents and regular renters to showcase the breadth and variety that happens inside our four walls. Swing on over to our site where you’ll find a page dedicated to these interviews. It’s always so inspiring to hear what other artists are up to directly from them.
Our 2014/15 Residents
This year we introduced a new residency called the Gallery Series. We invited visual artists to bring a new dimension to our space and to decorate our walls in a way we often don’t think about. To this end, Virgil Baruchel and Benjamin Kamino came and installed a visual art-performance piece called YOUCANTSEEUSBUTWESEEYOU, completely transforming hub into a wild field of flowers.
In October it was Craig Chambers’ turn. His show Vākənt juxtaposed beauty and distress: going on urban explorations, he placed dancers in abandoned locations all around Ontario to stunning effect.
REASEARCH Resident Lucy Rupert, completed the first part of her residency in the fall culminating with an open showing. She’s back in the studio this January for more research and a showing later in the month.
LAUNCHPAD artist Kate Alton was at hub this fall, working on her new solo. To learn more about her work and her time in hub14, check out our first artist feature.
Through our LAUNCHPAD Residency, the [elephants] collective made hub their home since the summertime when they were busy working on retooling their show, A WAKE FOR LOST TIME (initially created and performed through the Theatre Passe Murraille Elephants in the Room Creation Group). In November, they occupied hub14 for an entire 24 hours and performed their new WAKE to an audience as excited to be part of this event as they were to watch
WAKE has been programmed as part of The Pearl Company’s Canadian Theatre Festival in Hamilton from 1pm Jan. 24th to 1pm on Jan. 25th.
All in all, 2014 was a busy year for us. And we plan to keep the ball rolling in 2015. There are big changes coming to hub, including a new system to make booking the space much easier. But don’t worry: the hub you know will remain dedicated to the incubation and championing of new and developing work.
All the best in 2015,
Andrew Gaboury, Marie France Forcier, Aria Evans and Kate Nankervis

Time has been lost: It’s been lost to dreams of what will be and memories of what was; it's been lost to waiting on people who are waiting on people who are waiting on people to call back; it's been lost to wage slavery and to attempts to understand that which is beyond us; it has been lost to consensus objects, and production quotas, to expectation and the blues. In short, it has become nothing more than an distant, vicious spectre, living at the periphery of our lives but constantly gnawing. On November 15th to 16th from sundown to sundown we will try to make it real, make it present. A Wake for Lost Time is a 24-hour durational performance ritual that will attempt to make time present in the bodies of performer and audience alike.
A Wake for Lost Time is a single performance repeated for 24 hours. Audience may come and go as they wish and are welcome and encouraged to stay for the whole time. You're welcome to bring food, blankets, etc. or go for food and come back. Space is limited and in the case of a full house we will stay in touch over social media when space becomes available.
Saturday, November 15 @ 6:31PM to Sunday, November 16 @ 6:30PM
PWYC at the door
If you can’t make it, click here for a live stream of the performance!
