Brayden Jamil Cairns


Brayden Jamil Cairns is a Toronto based artist who creates works that can be enjoyed by all walks of life. He binds dance and live experience to create challenging works of art, drawing from different media such as design and film. Many of his ideas come from a powerful need to uplift the queer and BIPOC communities. Brayden will often be found researching what it is to feel pleasure and what can come from self-exploration in our strange world. He is a winner of the 2020 Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble for Rock Bottom Movements production of Hollow Mountain. He is currently looking after a neighbour’s house plant and recently assisted with rescuing two baby squirrels.
