A celebration of personal identity set to Must Be Tuesday's Princess Charming. Featuring performers from Toy Guns Dance Theatre, concept and direction by Jake W Hastey and shot in the Stony Plain public library.
Must Be Tuesday is a solo alternative folk act from Edmonton!!
The song is about the journey of a young person who is unable to be held back by traditional gender roles. Our video will be a fairy tale fantasy that will follow different characters through a cityscape as they find the joy in expressing all the aspects of who they are. It will finish with a choreographed dance scene of epic proportion!
My bowels are like a hive of stories just waiting to get out and Storyhive is like a liter of prune juice.
I first met Jamie when we saw his incredible performance at Edmonton's Loud and Queer Cabaret in 2014. I was blown away by his ability to create compelling narratives in songs that challenge societal stereotypes. We have been collaborating on this video ever since, in addition to him writing an original song for my recent Toy Guns live show.
Our team will host a voting party at The Druid in downtown Edmonton on Thursday May 14th. Live music from Must Be Tuesday will be playing while the voting takes place.
Posters will be made in support of our music video and plastered all around Edmonton! We will also create handbills to give out to people which will include voting information.
Each day we will be posting to Facebook and Twitter with videos and voting information. The link will be posted on our supporters websites, including Sahara Sandblasting & Painting, St. John's Institute, Toy Guns Dance Theatre, and more. Toy Guns Dance Theatre will also be sending out a newsletter to their email list.
