Meet The Darlings!

Canada’s multi-disciplinary, non-binary drag performance collective whose boundary breaking works challenge conventional drag, exploring genderqueer, nonbinary, and transgender experience through the use of movement, poetry, performance art, theatre, and immersive/interactive installation that has shocked and stormed the Vancouver cabaret and theatre scene.

A part of the HST ON-SCREEN PROGRAM. The show has been recorded and will play in the new cinema lounge in Ruby's at Holden Street Theatres. 

"[The Darlings] are doing what they want, how they want to, promising you something you won’t want to sleep on or the regret will haunt you until the end of your days." INSIDE VANCOUVER
