FADO's newest performance series, Performance: Club, attempts to redefine the historical and contemporary performance art canon, one book club, and one book / article / essay / anthology at a time. Invited artists perform the role of book club facilitators, leading the audience through a performance of a reading, a reading performance, a performance about a book, or a bookish performance. The inaugural Performance: Club takes on the newest tome in our collective performance canon: Queer/Play edited by Moynan King (published in November by Playwrights Canada Press).

 

A collection of never before published scripts and interviews from both emerging and established Canadian queer theatre and performance artists, Queer/Play maps a cross section of current performance works found at the intersection of queer life and art, delving into the resulting subcultures and always-changing concepts of identity and performance. In this book, queer is not just something someone is; it’s also something these artists do.

 

Queer/Play Performance: Club is presented in 3 sessions, and will be performed by Moe Angelos and Catherine Hernandez. Angelos and Hernandez interpret and take inspiration from the material content of Queer/Play to create a new performance work of their own, playing with the idea of book club.

 

PLUS!

Each event in the Queer/Play Performance: Club will feature a verbatim reading of some of the interviews contained in Queer/Play, performed by a roster of Toronto-based artists, writers, and performers including: Tanya Mars, Dainty Smith, Sky Gilbert, Shannon Cochrane, Darren Gobert and many others!

 

 

INFO & DETAILS

Admission: PWYC (at the door only)

 

This is your book club. You are the audience. You decide how many sessions you attend. Come to one, two or all three!

 

It is not a requirement that you have already read the book being clubbed to attend this Performance: Club. But you are more than welcome to! There will be a limited number of discounted books for sale at the door or you can purchase your copy in advance through the Playwrights Canada Press website.

 

FADO will also be taking a collection at the door each night during Performance: Club to offset the cost of purchasing a book for anyone that cannot afford one.
