Oct 12, 2017



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


7:00 p.m.


For Scrivener’s Monthly, Jalal Toufic presented “The Dancer’s Two Bodies” (2015), a lecture considering the relationship between dance and cinema.

Toufic’s talk was presented in partnership with the School for Contemporary Arts Audain Visual Artist in Residence Program and SFU Galleries, as part of Walid Raad’s exhibition Sweet Talk: Commissions (Beirut 1994).

Scrivener’s Monthly was a series of public presentations that explored the space between material practices and spoken words. Set alongside exhibitions at Western Front, this experiment in “not publishing” involved readings, performances, and other articulations.
