Date: Sunday, December 1st at 5 pm
Nightwood Theatre presents
A PWYC screening of “Our Dance of Revolution”
A documentary by Phillip Pike
"We are people of revolution. Were here because others have rebelled. Because others have stood in solid resistance!" Listening to Angela, a Black lesbian feminist who is rousing a crowd, we understand that, no, this particular revolution wasnt televised. Rather, from out of the shadows, it was hugged, chanted, marched, and danced into existence. Our Dance of Revolution tells the story of how Black queer folks in Toronto faced every adversity, from invisibility to police brutality, and rose up to become a vibrant, triple-snap-fierce community.
Capturing first-person accounts across a span of four decades, this feature-length documentary is more than a previously untold oral history, more than a reclamation of unsung people and events. Our Dance of Revolution is a human-scale reckoning of how audacious individuals find themselves by finding others, and how they muster the courage, tenacity, and creativity to prevail against the forces of marginalization.
When: Sunday, December 1st at 5 pm (following our 2:30 matinee)
Where: Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, 12 Alexander Street

ABOUT EVERY DAY SHE ROSE
by Andrea Scott and Nick Green
Directed by Andrea Donaldson and Sedina Fiati
A Nightwood Theatre Production
November 23-December 8, 2019
at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (12 Alexander Street)
The personal becomes political in this collaboratively created new work from playwrights Andrea Scott and Nick Green. When racial and queer politics collide with the Black Lives Matter protest at the 2016 Toronto Pride Parade, two best friends discover that the things that brought them together may now drive them apart. A hilarious and heartbreaking stare-down of privilege and oppression.
