March 28 at 8:00PM // The Cabaret // PWYC
Join artist in residence Pearle Harbour as they share a new version of their show Battle Cry, which they have been developing this year in the Buddies Residency Program.
A drag concert extravaganza, Pearle Harbour‘s Battle Cry reimagines and re-enacts of some of the most popular pro-war rallying songs of the last century, without loyalty to nation or cause. It’s proper propaganda to get your toes tappin’ and feet marching!
From Vera Lynn classics to the anxious pop hits of the Cold War, imperial Japanese gunka and Great War Canadiana, Pearle will pull her audience into the trenches, to find out what’s worth fighting for, and if you’ve got what it takes.

Pay-What-You-Can tickets will be available at the door – no one will be turned away.
