Dayna McLeod is a writer, video and performance artist living and working in Montreal. Peppered with feminism, Dayna’s work is ripe with humour and socially charged situations. She heightens the realities of social exchange, usually focusing on sexual exploitation and orientation to create an environment of absurd recognition for her audience. Dayna has traveled extensively with her performance work and has received funding for video projects from the Canada Council and the Conseil des arts et des letters du Québec. She has participated in residency programs at Studio 303 in Montreal, Charles Street Video in Toronto, and EM Media in Calgary.
