ABOUT Queer Play 

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 2 sessions, and will be performed by Moe Angelos. Angelos interprets and takes inspiration from the material content of Queer/Play to create a new performance work of their own, playing with the idea of book club.



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: Shannon Cochrane, Amanda CordnerSky Gilbert, Darren Gobert, Johanna HouseholderAisha Sasha JohnLouise Liliefeldt, Pamila MatharuTanya Mars, Dainty Smith and Michaela Washburn.

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).
