Alexis Berris - Crée en 2016, Fissuré.e est un jeu vidéo auto-biographique qui cartographie le questionnement d’une femme non-binaire en devenir et qui célébre l’angoisse, l’euphorie et l’embarras qui vient avec une première remise en question de l’identité de genre.
THE WALK-IN CLOSET is a local webseries that subverts that sweet, sweet Hollywood trope of straight actors playing queer roles. The cast features Montreal’s funniest comedians and actors who are all part of our LGBTQIA+ family!
I Am Human is a one person monologue written by Bev and performed by Bev questioning the exististence of being black in 2018 .
Sue E & Ollie V - In this exploration of the inner struggles of two radical, queer feminists, we ask; Should we have shaved our pubes? Should we pretend to be vegan? What even is feminism? Who even is us?
Queer tango trio was born in Montreal in 2017 as a trilingual, multi-origin and interdisciplinary collaboration between Geraldine Brouard, Kristina Parker and Itzayana Gutiérrez. Together we have assembled an intimate act of queer mourning. Set to live music emotively capturing experiences of violence and deep colonial trauma, the paired queer tango dance embodies gender fluidity and explores queer intimacy as a form of resistance.

James Brown, Patrick McGill & Jerome de los Santos
Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears hid their relationship from the world and today we see their songs through a reclaimed queer perspective. We will celebrate and recontextualize the music produced by the most famous gay couple in Classical music through the influence of their discovered anxieties.
