Event Details

“Art does not imitate life. Art anticipates life.” — Jeanette Winterson

50 years after Stonewall and the Canadian decriminalization of homosexuality, rEvolution gathers together urgent voices of resistance to the growing backlash: art as the evolution of the revolution. Highlights include the Queer Songbook Orchestra; The Queen in Me, Teiya Kasahara’s cri de coeur; and The Devil’s Contract, a reading of Canada’s first deaf opera.

A Roundhouse partnership with Pride in Art Society
