A fish walks onto a GO Train…  

Art In Transit: Luminato on the GO follows grumpy, urban Fish, suited and caffeinated, as he begins his morning commute yearning for the water and feeling the call of the lake. With assistance from a cheery Train Conductor and chance encounters with musicians and dancers, rituals and readings, Fish rides the train all the way home to Lake Ontario, while slowly transforming from a fish-in-a-suit into his true aquatic self.  

Waiting for Fish at Union Station is the musical Welcoming Committee, who joyfully joins him on his final quest to get to the water.  

Art In Transit: Luminato on the GO brings the delight and whimsy of street theatre to everyday train commuters. Popping up on a different GO line and in different Union Station concourses, every weekday of the festival, this is a morning commute you won’t want to miss.  Make sure to catch the GO so you don’t miss the boat!  


With the health and safety of our audiences, artists, staff, and volunteers as our top priority, Luminato will continue to require proof of vaccination for all indoor performances in 2022. 

While the government of Ontario has lifted the mandatory check for vaccine passports as of March 1, we are choosing to keep our policy in place. We thank you for your patience and understanding as government policies are continually changing. 

Face masks are required for all indoor performances. Face masks are strongly encouraged for all outdoor performances. 

Luminato’s Vaccine Policy 

Audiences will be required to show proof of full vaccination and photo ID for all indoor performances. Proof of vaccination must include the attendee’s name, date of vaccination and product name (brand of vaccine). The receipt can be in paper or in an electronic format (shown on the patron’s phone).   

Remember, you are considered ‘fully vaccinated’ only 14 days after your second dose. 

Proof of ID must include the patron’s name and date of birth. 

For outdoor performances and events, proof of vaccination is not required.
