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.

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.

Douce Orageuse est une ode à l'amitié.
C'est une création qui cherche la connexion, la métamorphose.
Douce Orageuse est une exploration de moi et des autres.
Dans une confiance sans limite, que je me suis toujours permise avec vous, je m'ouvre sincèrement.
Guidée par un besoin de compréhension, j'explore les notions larges et compliquées qui habitent ma vie et qui habitent la vie de mes amiEs; la santé mentale et le militantisme.

A new workshop from MainLine! Sell yourself without selling out. Learn how to craft your brand in order to propel your career forward. Take this straight-forward workshop with MainLine's Executive & Artistic Director Amy Blackmore. The workshop will include important topics including the creation of your own branding, online presence, in-person networking tips, resume/cover letter writing for the arts, interview skills and more!

La scène s'ouvre sur les décombres d'un supermarché sur lequel un immeuble de dix étages vient de s'effondrer. Prisonniers de ce chaos souterrain, séparés par une cloison de béton et sans pouvoir se voir, deux hommes ont survécu. Ensemble, ils vont se soutenir, se découvrir, se confronter et se livrer pour finir par nous offrir au terme de leur aventure une vue sur le paradis.
