Now that you can’t hide your hair underneath a thick wooly touque a new haircut is of the utmost importance. This makes the timing of playwright and actor Darren O’Donnell’s latest project very appropriate.
Haircuts By Children gives a couple of Parkdale elementary school children some shears and an opportunity to go at the hair of strangers at various salons around Toronto during the month of May.
O’Donnell sees HBC as a critique on the disenfranchisement and powerlessness of children. The first haircutting session takes place tomorrow, noon-4pm at CUT 4 U, 2164 Danforth Avenue (between Woodbine and Main)
Here are the rest of the sessions:
Saturday, May 13, 2006, Noon – 4pm
Wisdom’s Barber & Beauty Salon, 1754 Eglinton Avenue West (East of Dufferin)
