Buddies in Bad Times Theatre is on the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, and the Wendat, and is the treaty territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. We acknowledge them and any other Nations who care for the land (acknowledged and unacknowledged, recorded and unrecorded) as the past, present and future caretakers of this land, traditional territory named Tkaronto, “Where The Trees Meet The Water”; “The Gathering Place”. We do not support colonial forces that undermine, distort or erase the vital role of Indigenous people in our world.
ABOUT YOUR HOST:
ANASIMONE GEORGE is a stand up comedian from Toronto who is known for her wild and often described, “Zany”, stories. She is the producer and host of Toronto’s sold out show SHADE, short, and full of rage.
Besides hosting and producing multiple shows across the city, Anasimone has also opened for Elvira Kurt, Baron Vaughn, Aparna Nancherla, Emily Heller, DeAnne Smith, Chanty Marostica, and Sam Jay to name a few.
Anasimone has also been a part of JFL42, the Toronto Fringe Festival, the 420 Comedy Festival, as well as produced the SHADE Festival.
ABOUT YOUR DJ:
Dj Zehra plays the raddest events in the city! You’ve seen her get everyone moving at South Asian stage and BLOCKORAMA at Pride, Shameless magazine events, No One Is Illegal rallies and much, much more! She’s here to spin us the best beats! Get ready to shake your jelly to SOCA, dance hall, ‘90’s R&B & some Reggaeton!
ABOUT YOUR CURATOR:
Sica Saccone is the curator of Lavender. She moved from a small town to Church and Wellesley to be close to the queer community. When she finally got there, she was quickly hit with reality that the village is only intended for gay men and bachelorette parties. She took that information and rejected it, created Lavender and is now dedicated to creating sustainable, safe, inclusive spaces within the Church-Wellesley village for LGBTQ+ women, trans and non-binary people.
