˝Edgy Women embraces and represents the most significant qualities of the best cabaret performance… An absolute dream to watch after years of dour women’s performance art, frothy feminism, and mishandled political agendas.˝ (Sasha van Bon Bon, producer of the Scandelles, and a nationally syndicated sex columnist, Toronto)
showcase of short works by Montreal’s
most innovative feminist queer artists.
Rich in incisive wit, this multidisciplinary programme employs physical theatre, experimental sound and video to explore broad issues of social dynamics, popular culture and personal identity, as well to expose parallels between team sports and pornography. Embracing silliness and experimentation, each work is an exercise in imagination. In addition, Edgy Women offers audiences a privileged peek into life backstage via a live video feed from the dressing room.
show features live work by Nathalie Claude
PopStar), Alexis O'Hara (2Face and 23 chromosomes), video by Dayna McLeod (The
Pleasure Zone) and Lamathilde (Triple
Axxxle), as well as Miriam Ginestier (fake
emcee) – all drawn from past
editions of Studio 303’s Edgy Women
Festival in Montreal. Directed by Miriam Ginestier and presented each
March, the annual Festival features workshops and a diverse programme of
cutting-edge work which is both experimental as well as entertaining, and
provides an excellent opportunity for audiences to experience content-driven
artwork by women.
We hope you enjoy the show!
