        'Attila Richard Lukacs in Hollywood' imagines a scenario where Paramount Studios hires iconoclastic Canadian painter Attila Richard Lukacs to direct it’s backlog of unproduced screenplays. Drawing on the actual 2013 Hollywood Black List - an annual list compiled by film executives of Hollywood’s ‘best’ unproduced screenplays - the performance reimagines the generic cinematic narratives through the lenses of Lukacs’ disquieting vision of the queer death drive. Part one of 'Mortal World', a performance triptych by artist Jordan Tannahill, 'Attila Richard Lukacs in Hollywood' explores abstract and abject desires, images, and bodies that run counter to the prescribed narratives of the status quo. It is a work that suggests, as theorist Lee Edelman posits in 'No Future', that the efficacy of queerness lies in its very willingness to embrace a pleasure that refuses the social and political order. A performance by Jordan Tannahill, featuring Adrienne Crossman, Felix Kalmenson, Cameron Lee, Judy Virago, Igby Lizzard, William Christopher Ellis, Tawiah M’Carthy, Kelly Clipperton, and Casey Mecija. Video and editing by Yuula Benivolski Additional camera Natalie Logan

A follow-up to our 'avant-garde autobiography' Tenderpits -- Revenge of the Popinjay is an experimental rap-horror show in which Anthony struggles to cope with the loss of his sister while uncovering a frightening link between himself, his lover, and an illusive gay rap star/serial killer targeting heterosexuals. Revenge of the Popinjay combines storytelling, stand-up, physical theatre, performance art and original live rap music to create a one-of-a-kind theatrical event. Popinjay satirizes the clichés of homophobic culture and questions the capacity for evil in all of us. "A risky and innovative multimedia show...Johnston is a virtuoso of the comedic moment... A great feat of theatre and performance art." Mooney On Theatre, Toronto "What makes this solo show so remarkable is Johnston’s ability to convey biting satire, touching naiveté and pure looniness all at once... Popinjay is a dark and brilliant work." Stage Door, Toronto animalparts.org
