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.)

TL;DR? The 140 version: “#sheroes @fatbellybella remix @beavertoronto tribute line-up announced http://bit.ly/yhBFg6 ft-ing @bizZarh, int’l group #GIF show & more!”

On Thursday, January 26, 2012, Sheroes will be kicking off their 2012 programming at a new downtown Toronto location with a stunning sho nuff line-up of multidisciplinary artists offering up one-night-only “remix tributes” to the Analog Girl In A Digital World, Miss Erykah Badu (AKA @fatbellybella, DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown, midwife Badoula, etc.)

The TO-based performance series — a free experimental on/offline monthly jam celebrating the “League of Legendary Ladies” — said goodbye in 2011 to “DuWest” hotspot NACO Gallery & Cafe (RIP), and is moving on to Queen West’s “alt-cultural oasis” The Beaver in 2012.

In keeping with our reputation for curating thematic performances, sounds, installations & visuals in tribute to the month’s Shero, we’ll be honouring Miss Badu with the following line-up:
