Studio 303 is by far my favourite interdisciplinary arts centre. Mostly because it's backed by a core of dedicated queer-positive women. They are having their annual fundraiser if you can afford to support them.
The 2008 fundraising efforts yielded a new dance floor and revamped dressing rooms, as well as three creative
residencies. This Friday and Saturday, check out their spunky Soirée Moirée. It's "a tongue in cheek
evening tribute to the legendary ballet Relâche, by Picabia, Satie and
Rolf de Maré’s Swedish Ballet. Audience should to be chic, if they care to," says co-creator Marc Boucher.
Here's the official description: Guests are greeted for an evening of performances,
projections, song, dance, play and other objects. Relational
Surrealism. 1922 multiplied by Antiquity divided by today. A tongue in
cheek tribute to the legendary ballet Relâche, by Picabia, Satie and
Rolf de Maré’s Sweedish Ballet. The moirée effects is applied to images, sounds, symbols and myths.
