Founded in 1993, Mammalian Diving Reflex is a research-art atelier dedicated to investigating the social sphere, always on the lookout for contradictions to whip into aesthetically scintillating experiences. They create site and social-specific performance events, theatre-based productions, gallery-based participatory installations, video products, art objects and theoretical texts. Mammalian’s body of work is interconnected, varied and vibrant, reflecting our unique and growing body of knowledge and expertise on the use and function of culture.
Mammalian Diving Reflex has received numerous awards and support for its engaging collaborations with the community, children and youth. Haircuts by children is one of their best known pieces. Most recently, the company was the recipient of the inaugural Neighbourhood Arts Network TD Arts Diversity Award (2013), and the Toronto Community Foundation’s Vital Toronto Award.
