WIGGLY STREET (no. 84) is an urban celebration of Canada, 150 Years into the Future.  This art installation and performance is created by the Wiggly Artists Collective specifically for Nuit Blanche Toronto 2017.  The Wiggly Artists Collective is a multidisciplinary collective that combines sculpture, visual arts, film, video, art performance, dance, sound, and music creating environments that unite their audiences. Produced by Takin Nateghi, WIGGLY STREET combines four major components that are led by four respective artists:

~ Visual and Performance Artist ~ Will create 6min long live performances each hour on the hour with Aurorah (musician) and Eros Leonard (dancer). Representing a 24-hour cycle over the 'future' years that tells a story of love and unity of the potential unknown, which are fundamental Canadian values. 

:: Rouzbeh Heydari ::
~ Filmmaker, Director, and Producer ~ Projection mapping celebrating major world milestones and symbolisms that represent Canadian culture and values, such as multiculturalism, equality, and universality

:: Ryan Longo ::
~ Sculpture Artist ~ Sculptural installations with LED components representing futuristic urban forestry.

:: TAKIN of Wiggly Events ::
~ DJ and Producer ~ Curates the Audio Component – hourly audio performances will symbolically ignite the 'Reactor' (Longo) that powers the installation, fueled by the vibrations caused by audience movement.

NUIT BLANCHE artists do not get payed to create for this FREE event, and as such, we have created a GoFundMe Page in hopes to raise funding to cover some of the costs associated in putting together this art installation.
