Fluid invites you to a special evening of spoken word and art. Celebrate World Pride 2014 at Project Gallery, June 19.
Join us for a night of dynamic performances that explore sexual diversity, gender politics, relationships and love. Fluid’s vision is to create an inclusive, progressive, healthy and open dialogue that strengthens the artist and LGBT community by hosting an honest and safe environment where storytelling can foster alliances across the spectrum of sexual identities.
Do you have your own unique story to tell? Prepared a piece of writing? Get involved and be a part of Word Flow!
The podium is open for those who wish to share their lyrical prowess, sexuality story or anti-oppression story in our conducive and buoyant gallery space.
Sign up for open mic begins at 6:45 pm
Featuring Performances by:
Cynthia Gould- Cynthia Gould is one of those artsy freaks – a performance poet, writer, painter, graphic designer, party instigator (Bridesmaidmania and the Toronto Tinfoil Hat Contest), and is the singer/guitarist for the increasingly notorious Toronto drunkrock band High Heels Lo Fi. She’s been on two spoken word tours, twice performed at Word on the Street, was published in Reader’s Digest, and The Globe & Mail called her “an off-colour feminist rant poet”, to which she disagrees, but giggles.
Same Difference (Brent Peers) of WE FLIP TABLES! – Nationally competitive slam poet who isn’t all that competitive despite being naturally competitive; he wants to change your mind.
Andre Prefontaine, the two time Canadian underground Slam Champion, and two time haiku death match Champion of Canada promises to dazzle and razzle with brutal and human insights into the entity called life. He shares the same birthday with Nikola Tesla and is a devout Sage Francis fan.
BingeNinja – neither man nor woman. neither living or dead. The only living link to a past earth inhabited by inane, carbon-based lifeforms.
Lauren Stewart – Feisty artist and photographer with a mouth full of fatal venom and dynamic rhyme
Anthos Apollonios – Dancer, healer and poignant, unabashedly raw, truthful spoken word performer
Natalie Budzinsky- Crafter of words, crafter of crafts, maker of magically made universes with a talent that spans across all art forms delivers soulful, cunning, alliterated word play.
Dorianne Emmerton – Writer, theatre reviewer and radio host. Recent publications include stories in Friend. Follow. Text #storiesFromLivingOnline and Issue #1 of Beer And Butter Tarts, as well as a personal essay in A Family By Any Other Name: Exploring Queer Relationships. Passions include summer, furry animals, and craft beer.
