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.)
Virtual Season is an all-day & night art and music festival in the vein of the Ancient Greek theatre festivals or the Latin American Saint Days. Featuring a stellar line-up of local bands and international artists, a frenetic assemblage of performance art, music, GIF and GIF-based video art, DIY projects and various activities will reinterpret and remix the mythic celebrity worship that pervades digital and actual cultures.
If you’re keen to keep up with the end of Sheroes, you’ll be excited know that this month will not only culminate with our closing event, Sheroes #12: Nina Simone (Thursday, July 26), but also our massive gala closing all-day and night art & music festival that we’re co-presenting with local Artist-Run Centre Whippersnapper (Sunday, July 29).
In spite of Pimienta’s youthful vocals and Capullo’s upbeat playing style, the self-congratulatory refrain of “The one you really love is me” contains an undercurrent of doubt: that gnawing sense that perhaps the one she really loves isn’t him, but someone else; someone more popular, or better at sports.
