REQUIEM FOR A DREAM - A HALLOWEEN DRAG MUSICAL
Interested in exploring theatre, song and dance?
Curious about playing with the lines between “feminine” and “masculine”?
“Requiem for a Dream” is a FREE performance and drag mentorship program for LGBTTIQ2S youth of colour and aboriginal youth between 14-29 years old. Over 12 weeks in a safe, nurturing and fun space, we’ll explore gender, song, movement and theatre to create a group drag performance to celebrate our dreams and imaginings.
Note: “Drag” is about playing with the lines between what is “male” and what is “female.” Everyone can play with Gender in Performance.
