Norgate brings lesbian etiquette to Gabriola
Sheila Norgate can’t seem to leave bad enough alone. First there was “Charm Beauty and Poise” and then “Chin Straps and Other Remedies”; presentations intent on unearthing the flaws and foibles of the feminine affiliation. But now Norgate takes aim at one particular segment of the womanly gamut: the modern lesbian.
In her latest show “Lesbian Etiquette: World’s Greatest Living Oxymoron she probes the many layers of lesbian life in a tireless and desperate quest to reverse a landslide of tragically bad manners and even more appallingly bad taste.
Why is it that when two of the so-called “fairer sex” come together, the well-behaved baby is tossed out with the bath water along with a century of training in fine breeding?
When did plaid become a fashion statement? What makes lesbians unable to stay up past 9:30pm?
These and many more pressing questions will be answered Friday September 7th at 8pm (doors at 7:30) when Norgate brings her new, full-length Lesbian Etiquette show to Gabriola’s Rose Crystal Studio @ 380 Stephens Rd. Tickets are $15 and available through Artworks or (if there’s room) at the door. For more information or for tips on enhancing your appeal, call 250 247-7308. Everyone is welcome: lesbian, gay, bi, straight, curious, appalled, transgentrified, on the fence, building the fence, or on the wagon.
Please note that this show is a totally revamped and expanded version of the short piece Norgate did for the Funny Girls event at Rose Crystal this past spring.
