“…part deliciously retro, part very much here and now… Pearle Harbour blends spiky socio-political humour with smooth renditions of classics by the likes of David Bowie and Judy Garland.” – Toronto Life Magazine
Award-winning drag tragicomedienne Pearle Harbour presents her cabaret spectacular Agit-Pop! – musical meditations for the pre-post-apocalypse. Developed over five years of live performance, Agit Pop! is an ever-changing collection of Pearle’s favourite, best, and most heart-wrenchingly hilarious short acts. Weaving her signature acid wit and demented storytelling through the day’s headlines, Pearle takes on the world, from our mounting ecological anxiety, to nuclear tensions (past, present, future), from the well-trod tactics of strongmen, to digital escapism.
With live accompaniment by musical director Steven Conway, Pearle serenades audiences with new arrangements of old classics and little known gems by David Bowie, Judy Garland, Tom Waits, and many more. Join us for a theatrical performance that is both hilarious, moving, and truly unique!
