Discovering the striking images of photographer Katherine Ashby in real time with the audience, actor and improviser Tracey Hoyt leads us on a tightrope journey – embodying the faces, landmarks and objects that make Toronto’s West End an unforgettable destination. An improviser specializing in acutely detailed physical and vocal characterization, Tracey has a gift for sensing what the audience can handle – whether it’s a character’s comic commentary on gentrification or a dysfunctional confession from her own life. (
