More about Haus Orpheus:
HAUS ORPHEUS PRESENTS… is the new pan-African event series curated by Sarah Riegler & John Orpheus in downtown Toronto. They feature art in its many iterations--music, dance, spoken word, live painting, comedy, a Shakespearean monologue or two--all within the vibe of Pan-Africanism, intersectional feminism, and decolonization. The mission is clear: smash the white, heteronormative patriarchy and create, express, move, and build (comm)unity in the process.
