FORUM PERFORMANCE

AGIT-POP!

Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
September 21 – September 23
Varying Times

Award-winning drag tragicomedienne Pearle Harbour presents her cabaret spectacular Agit-Pop! – musical meditations for the pre-post-apocalypse. Developed over five years of live performance, Agit Pop! is an ever-changing collection of Pearle’s most hilarious and heart-wrenching short acts.

Weaving her signature acid wit and demented storytelling through the day’s headlines, Pearle takes on the world, from climate catastrophes to nuclear anxiety, the lust for housing, fake news, and real history.

Accompanied by musical director Steven Conway, Agit-Pop! reimagines the number-one hits of David Bowie, Judy Garland, Roy Orbison, Tom Waits, and more, in ways you've never heard before.

Please be advised this performance contains mature themes or subject matter and is intended for mature audiences.


“Pearle has emerged as one of the most engaging, thoughtful performance artists around.” - NOW Magazine

"Glamorous, poised, and devastatingly funny." - Xtra Magazine

“Combines the perfectionist aesthetic of a Stepford Wife, the optimism of a scout leader, and the dry rapport of a lounge singer.” - The Toronto Star
