TOLDO is a night of performance, art, music and dancing. The concept took shape when Richard Fox heard Daniela Dyson’s poetry on the radio; she spoke about the symbolism of the Toldo (mosquito nets) and a collaboration to make a dynamic netted performance space was born. TOLDO is their endeavour to create their own context for performance. They have invited artists they’re excited about to do their thing in the ephemeral environment of the Toldo. You are invited.

*

The Toldo masters the light, changing it at whim. Pink or white or blue, aglow. Like living inside a protective jellyfish. Ghostly translucency, whose effects are felt but ultimately seen through. Simultaneously garish and soft: a fluorescent flame. Inside the infrathin we partake in the performance at an intersection. You are a prize fish! Caught in its draping net then dressed for the market in a suffocating Molly Goddard smock. It clothes and shelters you.

Protected by your nylon womb you incubate. Strung up by its plastic umbilical cords, holding the welcoming walls wide. Safe from everything but the parasites who may only feast on you in your dreams, just don’t stretch too far. The poor man’s four poster, fit for a princess. Come inside. Intersect.

< chester giles
chester giles is a poet. Discussing the intimate qualities of the heavenly and the profane, he presides over a unique posture of subtly chilling verse that is as of the flesh as it is beyond us.

< Daniela Dyson
Daniela Dyson is a British - Afro-Colombian artist, poet and PMS casualty. She creates vignettes of the motherland that depict myth and brujería as well as discussing diaspora, micro-aggressions, sex and millennial neurosis.

< John Jones accompanied by Joseph Kelly
John's multimedia performances examine maritime folk history, the representation of masculinity within it, and the dualism of authenticity and mythology. His costumes and rituals draw from absurd, carnivalesque, and queer sources.

< Richard Fox
Richard Fox is an artist and member of CHAMP. He creates inflatable, dynamic sculptures including a mobile performance space entitled, inflato space. He will be creating an adapting netted set for TOLDO, in response to Daniela Dyson's poetry.

< Sunun and Robin Stewart
Sunun & Robin Stewart come together to present a new performance for TOLDO in collaboration with Mike Sebastian.
Meeting at the corners of Dub, haunted FX dance with scorched earth noise whilst ancient rhythms are beaten over and over. Focus and intrigue are the orders of the day, music and movement beneath the sacred skin.’
