AGIT-POP! by PEARLE HARBOUR
Artist: Pearle Harbour
The Montreal Clown Festival presents award-winning drag tragicomedienne Pearle Harbour’s Agit-Pop! – musical meditations for the pre-post-apocalypse. Weaving her signature acid wit and demented storytelling through the day’s headlines, Pearle takes on the world, from climate catastrophes, to nuclear anxiety, the lust for housing, fake news, and real history.
Sweet-as-pie and sharp-as-nails, award-winning drag clown Pearle Harbour is the nation’s premiere tragicomedienne. « One of the most engaging and thoughtful performance artists around » (NOW Magazine), Pearle’s gonzo original works have been presented to rave critical and audience acclaim in sold-out houses cross-country, including some of the most prestigious stages in Canada, featured on CBC-Gem, and published in Canadian Theatre Review. In English.
Developed over five years of live performance, Agit Pop! is an ever-changing collection of Pearle’s most hilarious and heart-wrenching short acts. Accompanied by musical director Steven Conway, Agit-Pop! reimagines the number-one hits of David Bowie, Judy Garland, Roy Orbison, Tom Waits, and more, in ways you’ve never heard before.
