FADO Performance Art Centre has a long history collaborating with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre to present the work of Canadian and international performance artists at the Rhubarb! Festival including: 2Fik (2011), Sian Robinson Davies (2012), Paul Couillard and Ed Johnson a.k.a Duorama (2014) and Staceyann Chin (2017). 

For the 39th edition of the festival, we are excited to be collaborating once again to bring the work of celebrated feminist performance icon Lois Weaver to the stage at Buddies. Weaver will be developing and presenting a Toronto iteration of her part-chat show, part-concert performance, What Tammy Needs to Know About Getting Old and Having Sex

Performed in the guise of her alter-ego Tammy WhyNot, a “65-year old trailer trash blonde who left Nashville for a career as a performance artist”, the performance is created through a collaborative workshop process with local LGBTQ elders in the week leading up to the performance. What Tammy Needs to Know About Getting Old and Having Sex looks at intimacy, relationships, desire, and sex in people over 50. No matter your age, Tammy shows us that love, desire, friendship, sexual health, and losing your keys in your handbag are universal concerns. Several iterations of this performance have been developed with a growing community of seniors in the UK and around the world. Sharing their stories and her own, Tammy invites you to quite worrying why… and start thinking, Why Not?

Buddies is committed to eliminating barriers to our programming and facility and ensuring an enjoyable experience for all of our patrons. For accessibility information at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, please follow this link: http://buddiesinbadtimes.com/accessibility/
