2009 Archival material

The 2009 rendition of this show was presented as a workshop presentation in the upstairs performance location of the pub Bar&Grill Rhino  where we developed the first stage of our show between Summer 2008 and May 2009. We were the first performing artists-in-residence at the Rhino. The departure point of our show was the 1990 mural by Walter Rustom which is located at the West side of the pub’s building and which is based on a 1926 historical photograph of the first winners of the Miss Toronto Beauty Pageant. Our show originally was conceived as a site-specific show and therefore is was important for us to present our workshop production at the sit of the pub.
