Nurse Angélique Presents….!

May 8, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$22.63 – $33.28

In 1734, a Black Portuguese-born woman Marie-Joseph Angélique was publicly executed in Montréal for setting a fire to escape enslavement. This drag-burlesque performance by local queer artists, developed by Kyra Philbert, re-imagines the historical figure as a contemporary registered nurse to explore Blackness in Canadian nursing.
