Montreal's QUEER Slowdance! Awesome 2018 Edition!

MainLine Theatre

❤❤❤ You are cordially invited to Montreal's QUEER SLOWDANCE! Awesome 2018 Edition! ❤❤❤

With a lending library of designated dancers for all you wallflowers, and a dancecard-booklet to set up dances in advance (should you choose to), Montreal's Queer Slowdance has all slow songs, all night long! (Except for the occasional intermission when we play the fastest songs we can find!)

It's high school with a happy ending. Come and experience why slow is beautiful, and why love is not ironic.

PS. Fabulous and inspired attire, while desired, is not required. But it would be AWESOME and HAWT. As this is our first Montreal Queer Slowdance in a while , you are encouraged to dress to impress!

Finally, you do not have to be queer to attend this party, but you must have an open mind, an open heart, and have open arms. Do keep in mind that many of our attendees fall within the LGBTTQ continuum and may or may not be interested in dancing with the 'opposite' sex, so if you are stridently straight, this may not be the most receptive community for you.

Mainline Theatre
3997 Blvd. St-Laurent
(Just south of Duluth on the East side of the street)

Saturday, January 27, 2018

Regretfully, the Mainline Theatre is not wheelchair-accessible. There is a single step through a glass door into the stairwell, and then there are 12 steps from there up to the theatre floor. There are 3 single-stall gender-neutral bathrooms on the premises, but none accomodate wheelchair-users.

18+ (as alcohol will be available for purchase)

♥♥♥

We are always looking for designated dancers for our evenings. If you are outgoing, warm, and willing to undertake the very serious duty and responsibility of inviting wallflowers out onto the dancefloor - if in fact, such a prospect gives you great joy - then please contact the organizers at inconsolablecat@hotmail.com.

Un nouvel atelier du Théâtre MainLine! Il peut être parfois difficile de construire ce genre de partenariat. Cet atelier propose des pistes claires et simples à suivre avec la Directrice générale et artistique du Théâtre MainLine Amy Blackmore et inclut des conseils personnalisés pour les projets à venir des participantes et participants. Nous discuterons des différentes formes de commandites, comment les obtenir et les maintenir tout en gardant votre projet éthique et authentique.

A worthy but impecunious young man has met the girl of his dreams. There's just one hitch - she's a courtesan, and she's about to be sold to a rich soldier from abroad. Can a wily, witty, fast-taking servant find a way to bring this farce to a happy ending? The 2,000-year-old Roman comedy gets a 1930s makeover in this new translation by Celia Taylor and Manuela Galindo. Recommended for ages 12+.

A brand new workshop from MainLine Theatre! The sponsorship game can be a tricky one. Take this straight-forward workshop with MainLine Theatre's Executive & Artistic Director Amy Blackmore. The workshop will include tailored advice and feedback for your performing arts projects. We will cover the different kinds of sponsorships that exist, how to get them, how to keep them and how to do it all in an ethical way, true to your project, vision and values.
