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.)

Ask A Sheroes Stan: Brad Horvath Finally Answers Super Important Dolly Parton Q’s

I died and went to Dollywood…on Monday! No kidding. Now I’m back and needless to say, I can’t wait for Sheroes tonight!”

Earlier this month, we were proud to launch our Sheroes Stan residency, a program that connects aca-fan knowledge and wisdom to the vastly growing motley crew that of international and local artists that are regularly involved with Sheroes each month.

For Sheroes #9: Dolly Parton, we were so glad to invite documentary filmmaker (and certifiable Dollite) Brad Horvath.

Brad — who was blogging over at Indiewire this week about the 2012 Nashville Film Festival — is someone who is incredibly within six degrees of Dolly. And mind blown! Did something really C000OOOL with his fannish-ness. In 2009, he made a documentary called The Book Lady regarding Dolly’s Imagination Library and her ongoing literacy advocacy work. (He was also just at Dollywood on Monday, but somehow still found the time in the midst of that pixie dust and butterflies to answer our burning fan q’s!)

Click below for the full interview, in which Horvath illuminates on the significance of butterflies, whether Dolly’s disco catalogue is really worth getting into and how she was responsible for Buffy The Vampire Slayer. (And if you’re in Toronto tonight, you can meet Brad at Sheroes #9 and ask him any Q’s we didn’t get answered!)
