Sweet-as-pie and sharp-as-nails, wartime wonder Pearle Harbour is an award-winning sensation and Canada’s premiere drag tragicomedienne.
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.
“Pearle has emerged as one of the most engaging, thoughtful performance artists around.” – NOW Magazine
“Glamorous, poised, and devastatingly funny. ” – Xtra Magazine
“Looking like she sashayed out of a 1940s fashion mag, Pearle Harbour is part deliciously retro, part very much here and now.” – Toronto Life Magazine
