OUTstages 2017 Artist line-up
Meet Intrepid Theatre’s OUTstages – a decidedly queer theatre festival – a week of outrageous stories, surprises, parties and performances from and for the queer community and beyond. This festival has its finger on the pulse of the queer theatre scene and is proud to bring some of the most exciting, daring and thought-provoking performances from across Canada to Victoria June 20-24.
Tomboy Survival Guide – Ivan Coyote (Vancouver)
Part anthem, part campfire story, and part instructions for the dismantling of the gender stories we tell from writer/musician/storyteller Ivan Coyote and an all tomboy band.
Love With Leila – Laugh With Leila Productions (Toronto)
Meet Leila – she’s fierce, she’s bearded, and she’s looking for love. The sensational solo show from CCPA grad Izad Etemadi.
Country Song – Lee-Anne Poole (Halifax)
Award-winning Halifax playwright Lee-Anne Poole’s love letter to country music, her queerness, and her father. A personal, intimate performance with just the performer, her guitar, and you.
MSM [men seeking men] – lemonTree creations (Toronto)
A live DJ spins electronic beats, creating an underground party where (almost) nothing is taboo in this dance theatre piece inspired by transcripts of online conversations. A festival favourite from Toronto’s lemonTree creations.
Diva Cab – Local & festival performers
Local and festival performers salute, send-up and worship at the altar of their favourite divas. It’s a closing night party and performance all-in-one.
OUTstages Play Readings – TBA
A showcase of new work from local and BC-based writers and theatre-makers.
