Escapist Action: Grey Cup Sunday

Performance
November 29, 2009The Gladstone Hotel Art Bar, 1214 Queen Street West, Toronto6:00 pm

The final day of Escapist Action: Performance in Recession, curated by Don Simmons, ends with a party to celebrate all things … football? Join us for Grey Cup Party by David Francovich.

A team of dandies gather to honour Earl Grey’s Cup over a cup of Earl Grey. The sports bar and the Victorian tearoom collide. Dressed in thrift store finery, they engage in male bonding over tea and biscuits while watching the Grey Cup final. Masculinity is reconstructed through a recession-friendly social ritual.

Join us for a cuppa and the game!

Performance Yellow

This fragrance opens us to the question, has the show started? It's winter, the theatre is colder than the street and the room is filled with people and all their winter smells: wet faux leather, down, too much shampoo, and beer breath. The atmosphere is a trickster. Am I late, am I early?
