After decades of dis-ease and illness, the pain of poverty, dis-ability and being reconfigured by surgery my hands now make another body for my body.....there are sounds, images, becomings....it is accomplished the moment I undertake it. It isn't the case that the body/I like(s) pain per se; rather, the body/I like(s) being a Body without Organs, and the pain is the price the body/I is/am willing to pay for that.

From February 27-March 2, Fado is proud to present a new performance work by Toronto artist, educator and cancer survivor, Pam Patterson. Cellu(h)er Resistance: The Body with/out Organs? is an epic 5-day performance-as-installation process piece that combines sound, drawing, action, video and collaborative writing examining the artist's body, the body with disease and the body without organs.

Fado is pleased to acknowledge the Canada Council, the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council, and the Department of Canadian Heritage for their support of our ongoing activities.
