Doggie Show is a hilarious costume contest and energetic dance party hosted by Toronto’s filthiest drag queens. Breeders and their bitches will walk the runway under the scrutiny of our vicious judges and hilarious commentators. Which specimen will win the blue ribbon, and who will be sent to the kennel cage to dance for their lives? The performance will be followed by live electronic and eclectic sets from our resident DJs. We invite you to dive into the glamour and grime of doggie couture and find your inner beast on our sleazy dance floor. BATH SALTS is the party crime of alien pop star JAL, described as “Electric Circus on bad street drugs,” a perfect partner for the House of Filth entourage of drag at its most vulgar.
Arts Partners at the Hearn: Sharing the Space
After 10 years of partnering with arts organizations, venues and cultural groups across the city, Luminato Festival will manage and run its own unique venue. The Festival is curating a series of performance events and artistic activations with arts partners from across the city, celebrating Luminato’s long history of working with arts organizations and cultural partners in Toronto in a new way: by sharing at the lowest possible cost the infrastructure and space we’re building.
