Salvation Army ashtrays, lamps, fabrics, and bric-a-brac. Whether you're looking for naked people dancing, alcoholic swingers, stylish sex scenes, a sea of polyester, Hammond organ jams, glitzy show numbers, white horses, blondes in the bathtub, gay hairdressers, or psychedelic animation, Anna Biller’s VIVA (2007) has it all. VIVA is a cult freak-out retro spectacle, about a bored housewife who gets sucked into the sexual revolution. Abandoned by her perfect Ken-doll husband, Barbi is dragged into trouble by her girlfriend, who spouts women's lib as she gets Barbi to discard her bra and go out on the town.
A day before the International Sex Workers’ Rights Day and hosted by the slutty queer femme performing artist BiG SiSSY, Atelier Céladon presents the sensual world of pool and transparent negligees, liquor and acid colours. Live from Café Cléopatra with one on one psychic dance/performance by Winnie Superhova, we have designed this evening to act as a faithful remake of the tropes of 1970’s sexploitation films from a sex-positive perspective. Sink into the velvety visual pleasure of femme performance and knowledge sharing on the reality of sex workers in Montreal by Stella.
