2boys.tv

Since 2002, as the collective 2boys.tv, Stephen Lawson and Aaron Pollard have pursued a collaborative practice that traverses disciplinary boundaries and political frontiers. They are active locally, nationally and internationally and their beginnings as a duo emerged from Montréal’s wildly eclectic cabaret scene. Subsequently they have toured and taught across the country, to museums, galleries, theatres, artist-run centres, universities and festivals and their ongoing collaborations with colleagues abroad at various intersections of performance and politics have brought them into a dialogue with audiences throughout North and South America and in Europe. As an artistic duo they share authorship on all projects and work from a tradition of creative expression that cuts across artistic disciplines. Their practice — which they plan, write, construct, embody and perform — results in artworks whose forms are determined by their core ideas and central passions and which incorporate unique approaches to video projection, costume, music, sound, spectator participation and the dynamic use of space.
