Montreals Queer Performance Camp is a rare opportunity to create

first_imgAdvertisement Alexis O’Hara (Sigi Pablo)The workshops include “Hello Sunday Morning! Queer Rave Afterglow,” which runs the same morning that Trudeau and company gear up for the Pride Parade. Put on  by performer, choreographer and curator Andrew Tay (who will be very busy this weekend — he also has a show at Toronto’s SummerWorks), it’s described as “part dance party, part ritual, totally irrational,” which sounds like quite the event for a Sunday at 10 a.m. This weekend Montreal celebrates Pride, which will surely be anticipated by many thanks to Justin Trudeau’s first appearance in the parade as Prime Minister. But there’s a concurrent, brand new series of events being organized by a group of people with no official affiliation to Pride that is just as worthy of your attention.From today through August 15, Montreal’s Studio 303 is putting on the inaugural Queer Performance Camp, a non-commercial, non-corporate approach to community building that offers participants an opportunity to explore, create, perform and network through a series of daytime workshops facilitated by a wide range of “queer artist guides.” It’s open to anyone, regardless of sexual orientation, though its focus is on providing a safe space where “queer is the dominant culture.”“I’ve wanted to do this for a while,” says Miriam Ginestier, General and Artistic Director at Studio 303. “It affirms Studio 303’s latent, queer identity. It’s part of our identity and we really need to have an event that says ‘queer’ out loud. It is a bit of a pilot project. But I think people are really excited about it and feel that it is necessary.” Login/Register With: Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Twitter Advertisementlast_img read more
