Sheroes (http://fuckyeahsheroes.tumblr.com/) presents a remix tribute
to the "Grande Dame" Marianne Faithfull latest inductee to the "League
of Legendary Ladies" Featuring headlining performances by U.S. Girls &
Ulysses Castellanos TORONTO - (Tuesday, March 13, 2012) - Sheroes will
be presenting their latest event, Sheroes #8: Marianne Faithfull, on
Thursday, March 22 at The Beaver (1192 Queen Street West).
The monthly, limited-run art party series — which brings together on
and offline works that playfully and peformatively explore the
iconography and fan culture surrounding the "League of Legendary
Ladies" — will be co-headlined by U.S. Girls and Ulysses Castellanos.
For Sheroes #8: Marianne Faithfull, organizer Rea McNamara has
commissioned an impressive lineup of local and international artists
and performers. Inspired by the Grande Dame's various personas — the
convent-educated waif in lace, the Soho junkie aristocrat, the
husky-voiced survivor — these performances, digital animations and
interactive installations will reinterpret and remix for one night
only our current muse.
