Gossip Round-Up – October 17

Crowd in back of the Old Y

The audience mills around between performances at the Old Y Centre on Wednesday night.

Johanna Householder stopped by John Snow House to chat with Andy Paterson (in residence while developing a performance based on JSH’s extensive archival holdings), John Snow House Director Kaylin Pearce, and I. People fawned over Toronto performance festival 7a*11d‘s promotional material designed by Zab Hobart, and gossiped about previous JSH residents LIDS (Anthea Black, Nicole Burish and Wednesday Lupypciw).

During his performance at the Oly Y Centre on Wednesday evening, Randy Gledhill promised attendees at Sunday’s Performance Cabaret at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery a story about the time he got picked up by the Hell’s Angels. It’s sure to be a fabulous time, and the audience would be well-advised to keep an eye out for flying objects.

“He’s helping me fulfill all my fantasies!” gushed Terrance Houle, of being asked to assist in Gledhill’s performance by donning a white cowboy hat and shouting slurs out of the back of a pickup truck. Watch for more on Wednesday’s performances coming soon.
