STELLAR DJS, EXTRAORDINAY LIBATIONS, PRIZES FOR BEST WEARABLE ART

In homage to the days of taking over a warehouse (courtesy of our friends at WS Tyler) and getting dressed up all freaky-like, NAC is throwing a party in memory of STRUTT. The STRUTT Wearable Art Show was a community favourite, a highlight in the fall calendar, and we miss it! Don’t get us wrong, this party doesn’t signal the end of all things STRUTT, it’s just a friendly reminder that $t. Ca$hrines knows how to have a good time. So put on your craziest outfit à la wearable art and join us at The Odd Fellows’ Temple to get your dance on.

Voix de Ville Extravagonzo / The Evolution of STRUTT

NIAGARA ARTISTS CENTRE presents
VOIX DE VILLE EXTRAVAGONZO

In partnership with the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre
Friday 18 November at 7PM
Saturday 19 November at 7PM + 9:30PM

TICKETS AVAILABE HERE

The Voix de Ville Extravagonzo has evolved out of the Niagara Artists Centre’s popular STRUTT Wearable Art Show, a long-running Niagara favourite. Voix de Ville is a show based on the storied traditions of vaudeville. It is an unrivalled mixture of extraordinary performative feats presented in equally exuberant proportions.

A cavalcade of talent has been invited to amaze and astonish audiences in novel ways. Ringmaster of Ceremonies Bruce McCulloch—¬everyone’s favourite Kid in the Hall—will orchestrate the riot of WTFery from centre stage. Canada’s representative at the 55th Venice Biennale, Shary Boyle will transform Partridge Hall with beguiling projections and an exhilarating set design. On stage, the action of dancers and acrobats dressed in one-of-a-kind wearable art creations from the bizarre to the sublime will be propelled by a reconstituted Shadowy Men on Shadowy Planet, often called the Best Canadian Instrumental Band of All Time. The show is directed by Suitcase in Point Theatre Company‘s Artistic Director Deanna Jones.

“With STRUTT I think we discovered how fantastically weird Niagara could be, we’re primed to be working with the PAC to get everyone’s freak on in the great new digs downtown,” says Stephen Remus, NAC’s Minister of Energy, Minds, and Resources.

Deanna Jones of Suitcase in Point Theatre Company, who is stage directing the show, “Voix de Ville will bring what was once STRUTT to a whole new level of spectacle and performance by drawing on the influences of old-style Canadian vaudeville.”

WHAT THE STRUTT!?

It’s happening ? It’s not happening? When’s it happening?

Shit happens.

Whither the STRUTT Wearable Art Show?

We sincerely wish we could offer you a short, concise, and confirmed answer on where and when the the sixteenth incarnation of the STRUTT FIASCO will be touching down.

Unfortunately, we can’t.

What we can tell you is this: Our home for the last four years is no longer available to us. The WS Tyler Factory has been reactivated, and believe it or not, now has a higher purpose to serve than hosting an annual wearable art weekend.

Our search for a home has lead us to the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre. We’re working the details on how to land the STRUTT Mothership of Weirdness in that spanking new facility but the calendar is too crammed for this fall. Presently, we’re trying to work all the details of unleashing the amphetamine rush of STRUTT on the newly beating cultural heart of downtown in the early months of 2016. Provided the ticker can take it, we’ll be making a formal announcement of the confirmed dates soon.

So, artists, hold on to those ideas, hone and refine them. And, anxious audience members, hold onto your hopes and your expectations. When we finally do this thing, guaranteed, it’ll be aimed at the stratosphere.
