The Koffler Centre of the Arts and Project Bookmark Canada invite you to walk the territory of Lazaro’s Dream:
October 1, 2016, 5 p.m., begin at the Bookmark on the Northeast Corner of the Bloor Street Viaduct in Toronto. Please bring your smart phones and headphones and download the audio walk before we begin. Allow for an hour to enjoy the walk.
Taking its inspiration from Michael Ondaatje's In The Skin Of a Lion, Lazaro’s Dream is an audio walk like no other. Beginning at the Bookmark for In the Skin of a Lion, at the Northeast corner of the viaduct, history and fiction are artfully assembled into a surreal dreamscape that carries the listener from the viaduct, through part of the Danforth neighbourhood, and down to Riverdale Park.
Lazaro’s Dream is produced by Angela Shackel of Accounts and Recordsand is a collaboration between the Koffler Centre of the Arts and Project Bookmark Canada. Project Bookmark Canada would like to thank the Good Foundation Inc. for their support.
Can’t make this event? As of October 1, you can discover Lazaro’s Dream at any time. Just download the audio walk and begin at the Bookmark.
Thanks to the support of the Good Foundation Inc., Project Bookmark Canada has a new, immersive exhibit featuring interviews with author Michael Ondaatje about the creation of In the Skin of a Lion and archival photographs of the building of the Prince Edward Viaduct. We are pleased to provide more context and celebration of this iconic Toronto story and our first Bookmark on Canada’s literary trail. Visit the exhibit here.
