Revolution They Wrote: Short Works Feminist Theatre and Performance Festival presented in partnership with MainLine Theatre is a 4-day event that aims to present new feminist works. With these works, we create an artistic space that is primed to educate, provoke and inspire change both on the stage and in our daily lives.

With a performance from Jacqueline Van de Geer's with a performance of her piece Magnify at 6:30PM.
In Magnify! Jacqueline van de Geer explores the process of aging through spoken word and movement. Our body is our home, a home that one day we have to leave, a home that one day will leave us. Magnify! honours our body, our bones, our skin and our heartbeats.

Travelling all the way from Rojava, Lady Jîyan brings you the finest sounds of Kurdistan, inviting you into her world of pop stardom, womxn fighters, and shadow theatre; the magical, the performative, and the hallucinatory. A one-woman interdisciplinary show curious about Middle-Eastern feminism, brownness, Kurdish-Canadian identity, and survival.

Des hommes vêtus de cuir remplissent les pages de nos livres d’histoire. Ces personnages prendront vie dans cette exposition d’histoire orale, par le biais de témoignages du passé, du présent et du futur des gens de cuir de Montréal.
Men clad in tight leather fill chapters in our queer history book. This exhibit brings history to life through an oral history gallery exhibition exploring testimony from Montréal’s leatherfolk past, present and future.

Precinct is 45 minute improvised narrative. This means the performers know who their characters are but no idea where the story will end up (spoiler: it's always hilarious). Andy Assaf, Dimitri Kyres, and Jason Grimmer play the three main cops: soft-hearted Carl "Carly" Boucher, short-fused John Calgary, and gruff step-father of five Captain Bill Garber. Other guests will be announced soon! Together these tough cops are cleaning up the mean streets of Montreal's Plateau one perp at a time!
