Sheroes

About
Sheroes was a monthly limited-run art party series that brought together on and offline works that playfully and performatively explore the iconography and cultures of fandom surrounding the "League of Legendary Ladies": Joni Mitchell, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Madonna, Yoko Ono, Erykah Badu, Etta James, Marianne Faithfull, Dolly Parton, Grace Jones, Dusty Springfield & Nina Simone.


Sheroes is presented by salonnière reeraw (Rea McNamara). Based in Toronto, the series curates specially commissioned performances, sounds, installations & visuals.


All Sheroes events are brainstormed and archived online at fuckyeahsheroes.tumblr.com, uniting digital communities with real-time audiences in an ongoing exploration into fan culture and collaborative content creation.


Virtual Season — our culminating presentation of new and past Sheroes on/offline works & performances — is currently gearing into its first international reunion tour. We will be announcing soon tour dates. (If you would like to book a Sheroes event, please contact us.)

Given Bizzarh’s affinity for Baduisms, and despite never having seen them live, they were the obvious suggestion when Rea McNamara inquired about performers for her bi-monthly Sheroes tribute party. Especially so, since the latest installment of Sheroes, held last Thursday at the Beaver, was in praise of the b-girl earth mother herself, Badu. Despite a brief speaker-related snag, Bizzarh – still relatively unseasoned performers – were unruffled and pulled off a short but intriguing set including, of course, their rendition of “Bag Lady.”
