Kinetic Aesthetic are a performance collective interested in making socially aware public performance interventions.
Sleeping Sitting Up
Sleeping sitting up is a technique used by the homeless of Montreal in order to prevent being ticketed by the police for sleeping in public areas. This was a 12 hour roaming durational performance in which we re-created our bedroom in the public spaces of Montreal.
Brand Everything (because the whole world can be sold)
A site-specific intervention during the Montreal Grand Prix in response to the hyper-advertising around the event. Two ‘promotional girls’ working on behalf of Montreal City Council poll the general public on which new street sign they would prefer for the historic Saint Laurent Boulevard. Budweiser was the clear winner.
