Our curiosity is piqued by a phone booth, once an urban commonplace but now a rarity. Those who pick up the handset will be treated to a lyrical podcast based on the epistolary relationship between artists Gabrielle Bélanger and Dominique Sacy, which grew out of a poetic takeover of a popular dating app. The artists’ intimate correspondence explores the ups and downs of looking for love in the digital age, where confusion and disillusionment alternate with enduring hope and moments of beauty.
Dominique Sacy is an author and performer of spoken word, slam poetry, and alternative theatre, while Gabrielle Bélanger is a community artist with an outreach-based approach. Creative collaborators since 2020, the multi-disciplinary duo thrives on their shared interest in community-engaged artistic interventions in non-traditional performance and exhibition spaces.
