Margaret Dragu has created performances, videos, publications, and participatory artworks since the 1970s. Dragu’s early practice was formed in contemporary dance and burlesque scenes in New York, Montreal, and Toronto. Her prolific body of art in performance, film and video, and collaborative and community-based art spans more than five decades. Dragu has also worked in commercial film, television, and radio as an actor, producer, writer, and director; choreographed for theatre, film and television; and has curated and written about performance art, dance, culture, and politics. Margaret was the recipient of a Governor General’s Award for Visual and Media Arts in 2012. In the same year, she was named Éminence Grise by the performance art festival 7a*11d, and in 2000 was selected for FADO Performance Art Centre’s publication series Canadian Performance Art Legends.
