About this Event

"Fauxstalgia" is a genre and gender bending cabaret that puts the spotlight on queer artists, Indigenous artists and artists of colour. Curated by Olivia Shortt, a Toronto-based classical and contemporary saxophonist, Fauxstalgia offers a unique amalgam of talent, attitude and spirit.

Your host, Smith Purdy, a two-spirit, Indigenous artist, whose empowering land acknowledgement will definitively set the evening's tone.

Joining Purdy will be show-stopping, classical, queer pianist Darren Creech. Creech’s multidisciplinary approach to the classical stage subverts expectations. He has a reputation for sequins, glitter and costume changes and takes his diverse audiences on an emotional journey.

Teiya Kasahara is a multi-disciplinary performing artist and creator, and first generation Canadian of Japanese and German roots. Praised for “singing clear, pure and straight from the heart,” ("Opera Going Toronto") Teiya is a coloratura soprano, who has sung across Canada and Europe for the last decade.

Cris Derksen, a 2016 Juno-Nominee, is an Indigenous cellist/composer known for building layers of sound into captivating performances. Her music braids the traditional and contemporary in multiple dimensions, weaving her traditional classical training and her Aboriginal ancestry with new school electronics, creating genre defying music.
