Montréal, Canada

Based in Montréal, CANADA, 2boys.tv is comprised of the multidisciplinary duo Stephen Lawson and Aaron Pollard (also notoriously known in some circles as alter egos Gigi l’Amour and Pipi Douleur!). Together they have created and toured, nationally and internationally, a wide repertoire of epic multimedia cabaret works, performances, videos and art installations. 2007 was the busiest year yet for 2boys.tv, premiering an elaborate installation work for la Biennale de Montréal, touring ZONA (across Canada and to Argentina), creating a performance intervention for the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto, and appearing as featured performers for the season opener ART HOUSE CABARET at the Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (2008 DORA Award for Best New Musical). This past February, the duo premiered a new performance piece, PHOBOPHILIA, (first public showing at the Montréal interdisciplinary centre Studio 303), an intimate, multimedia work which they have now begun to tour. 2008/09 activities for 2boys.tv include a large scale performance intervention for the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Festival in Toronto, a collaboration with the Festival Voix dʼAmériques in Montréal, new installation work with Studio 303, as well as tours within Canada, the U.S.A., the U.K. and South America.
