Description

Join us on the closing night of the Bi Arts Festival for an exciting night of performance, including music, dance, spoken word, burlesque, poetry, drag, and more! The Bi Arts Festival is the world's largest celebration of bisexual art and culture and runs September 18-23, 2018. Doors at 7:15pm, Performance at 8:00pm.

With:

A performance by world traveller and heartbreaker Beauregard Deville. Beauregard has performed at the Fierce! International Queer Burlesque Festival, Speakeasy at the Revival and at Toronto Pride.

Stand-up comedy, prose, and performance art with JL Whitecrow, an emerging Ojibway multi-disciplinary artist from Seine River First Nation, Treaty #3. JL shares an intimate yet uncomfortable look at life as a First Nations woman that is never Indian enough.

Rapper, author and spoken word artist Mugabi Byenkya. Mugabi's debut novel, Dear Philomena was published in 2017 to acclaimed reviews and a 30 city book tour in support of the novel. Mugabi is currently based between Kampala and Toronto.

Sofí Gudiño and the Inamorata Dance Collective present Taura - a dance duet incorporating flamenco, Aztec drumming, text and contemporary dance which unbinds the rules of tradition, gender and race placed on flamenco dance by departing from its Eurocentric aesthetic to explore dance in decolonized bodies.

See Lana Kouchnir in a poetry performance set blending personal themes of queer femininity, Ukrainian mythology, immigration, and the magical temporality of intergenerational trauma.

Jord Camp shares an experimental blend of drag, strip, burlesque, performance art and contemporary dance. This piece asks why is it so rare to find a space to be comfortable as a young bisexual man?

Singer-songwriter Shanika Maria brings her unique songs of empowerment, societal expectations, identity and relationships to the Tranzac. In 2018, Shanika is set to release her full length album “Subtle Uncertainties.”

Melissa Taylor presents a new short play - “Symphony No 6” - a look at the tender middle between friends and lovers, as two teenage girls foster an intense friendship that is lauded with sexual curiosity and attraction.

A sizzling new spoken word set from poet, activist and community organizer, Mona Mousa.

Bianca Boom Boom - the Triple B with the Double D's and a High C - is a multidisciplinary striptease sensation. This effervescent beauty has delighted audiences from coast to coast with her signature blend of wit, sass, charm and dazzling vocals.

Please join us in creating a scent-free environment for this and all Bi Arts Festival events.
