Founded in late 2007 by performance artists Alaska B and Ruby Kato Attwood, YT//ST is an Asian, Indigenous and Diasporic experimental Art and Music Collective.

Aesthetically, they blend the diverse styles of Noh, Chinese Opera, Chinese, Japanese and First Nations Mythology, Black & White Television, Psychedelia and Rock Operatics into a sensory feast. Leaders of the new Canadian vanguard, Polaris Prize shortlisters YT//ST will bring their trademark hand-painted sets, Noh inspired face make up, and unique hand-built musical instruments to the Queer Arts Festival for an enlightening concert. Is Vancouver ready? That remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure — this performance will be out of this world!

About their 2011 album, YT//ST:
"This is the kind of record that happens when city dwellers in two of the most multicultural urban areas of the world mix up gender, culture and genre with a sense of urgency. This sounds like the birth of a new culture." - David Dacks, Exclaim!
