Metro Studio After Dark – LIVEPride Cabaret
Eddi Licious is a Métis Two Spirit Lekwungen territory based dancer, gender bender, shape shifter and performance artist who began exploring Drag as an art medium in 2005. A mix of deep thoughts, primal urges, weirdness and whimsy, Eddi is passionate about experimenting with mixed media, concepts and characters as a means of promoting acceptance and diversity. This artist was featured on Season 2 (Ep. 9) of CBC’s Canada’s a Drag (episode available on CBC Gem and YouTube)
Peach Cobblah, known as the Baddest B&*#h ofVancouver, or East Van’s Cheapest Date, has been a fixture of Vancouver’s nightlife for over a decade. With her wife Isolde N. Barron she co-created Tucked & Plucked: Drag Herstory LiveOnstage which has appeared extensively over the past seven years including at the Magnetic North Festival and PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, and their latest theatre-drag hybrid for kids, Parents Are A Drag, commissioned by the Vancouver International Children’s Festival. Peach created and for over four years hosted Shame Spiral, a devilishly regretful weekly drag show at 1181 in Vancouver’s West End. She also helped revive the queer East Van scene for the past decade with events like HUSTLA: homo hip hop, The Gay Agenda: Glitter & Skin, a monthly party celebrating all forms of masculinity, the annual Mr/Miss Cobalt DragCompetition, Eye Roll: Another F$%*ing 90s Party, and Limp Wrist, celebrating queer icons. She can be seen sweating and swaying all over town. She appeared as Hanna the Dominatrix in The Vancouver Playhouse’s final production, La Cage Aux Folles, and continues to host events across the lower mainland from prides to community events to political conversations. Out of drag Peach is known as award-winning playwright Dave Deveau who has had twelve plays produced, many of which have been touring Canada and the US for the past decade.
