From its beginnings as a form of musical and theatrical parody, burlesque has traditionally played at the fringes of society. From those underground beginnings burlesque has flourished and is now experiencing resurgence as performance art.
The Hangman 7 collective – Ruth Gillson, Chris Hutcheson, Timothy Neesam, Barry Stoch, Olena Sullivan, Rod Trider and Toni Wallachy – exhibit their unique perspectives on the world of burlesque, exploring the fading boundries between naughty and nice.
Please join us for a memorable evening on Thursday October 28 between 7-10pm at Hangman Gallery, 756 Queen Street East in Toronto. Enjoy the exhibit at your leisure from October 26 through November 14. Hangman Gallery is open from 12 noon to 5pm, Tuesday through Sunday.
