Kill Joy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House

Listen to this: “Each Hallowe’en radical evangelical groups all over the USA and Canada build hell houses. Beginning in the 70’s, these performer-animated installations showcase a gruesome retribution for the sins of fornication, abortion, suicide, occultism, and— of course—same-sex relationships. This Hallowe’en Toronto artist Allyson Mitchell reclaims this hellish scenario with her crowd-sourced, lesbian-feminist, queer-fear-fighting and reinforcing Kill Joy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House.” UM YES.

There are going to be over 25 live performances in this art installation including musical acts and projections. This is certainly not your grandma’s haunted house… Or, hey maybe it is!
