Sleaze and Prophecy

IGNITE! Club Series

The IGNITE! Club Series is an art party, a multi-disciplinary performance party/clashing together audience and artists in an exploratory, off-the-wall, never-before-seen, might-not-ever-be-seen-again performance experiences.

We’re working with Femme Wave on this one! Femme Wave is a feminist arts festival in Calgary. Founded in 2015, it is a collective-run organization with board and committee members of diverse and varying backgrounds. The festival takes place in inner-city Calgary in November and has enjoyed considerable growth since its inception.

On June 8, 2017, the theme is Sleaze, an outrageous one night stand of all things sex, excess, gender blender/blending/identifying, 18+, and over the top sex pop flare. We celebrate the lewd, rude, risqué and sexual on this one night of new performative work.

For the evening we are taking over the whole bar of Venue 628 where artists will be able to perform on balconies, VIP rooms, stage, basement, bathroom, or wherever your dirty heart desires (there is also a rig for any aerials).

And on June 9, 2017, the theme is Prophecy, looking for those who are interested in adding to the ambience/environment of a techy future dystopian/utopian world. This could mean sound/light/video/photography/roving performers/participatory.

It can be anything related to the future… or…. technology … or … whatever your creative mind can think of.

This is an opportunity to perform, create or install your sexy, trashiest, wildest ideas for an engaged and bizarre-hungry crowd.

Artists will Receive:

  • Technical support (venue will be equipped with sound system, basic lights, performing areas).
  • A scheduled performance opportunity/slot/space for cabaret style performances.
  • An IGNITE! Festival of Emerging Artists pass.

Pass along to anyone interested or if you know you are already interested please email, stating your interest and discipline (you don’t need to have an idea yet) and we can run from there.
