La performance d’Oli Sorenson découpera plusieurs reproductions des tableaux de Paul-Emile Borduas qu’il a produit en examinant des jpeg trouvés sur Internet sans respecter toutes leurs qualités matérielles. For his performance, Oli Sorenson will cut into several reproductions of the works of Paul-Emile Borduas, which he executed simply by examining jpeg found on the Internet, and unfaithfully respecting their material features.

Sexuality is always wrapped up in structures and systems of power. This new verbatim theatre play by Dane Stewart offers an intimate and radically honest examination of sex and power from a queer perspective. Five students take a graduate seminar studying the work of revolutionary philosopher Michel Foucault. As they argue over issues of sexuality, gender, oppression and free will, these theories begin to rupture and spill out into their own lives. The characters expose the complexities of sexuality as it collides with BDSM, pup play, disability, gender, race, and sex work.

See the sensational play that sparked an international phenomenon. Worlds collide in Richard O'Brien's musical-theatre masterpiece as camp sci-fi meets sexual exploration, glam-rock, and sensual daydreams to treasure forever.
