DARKMATTER is a trans south asian performance art duo compromised of Alok Vaid-Menon and Janani Balasubramanian. Based in New York City, DarkMatter regularly performs to sold-out houses at venues like La MaMa Experimental Theater, Nuyorican Poets Café, and the Asian American Writer’s Workshop.
DarkMatter was recently part of the Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival as well as the Queer International Arts Festival. Known for their quirky aesthetic and political panache, DarkMatter has been invited to perform at stages and universities across the world.
DarkMatter's performance in Lethbridge will increase the attention to conversations about gender, race, and privilege in Lethbridge through an eye opening and engaging visual and poetic performance by the duo who are making headlines around the world.
The DarkMatter performance will take place in early Spring 2016, and will be open to all community members - youth, post secondary students, professionals, activisits, all ages are welcome. Event will be accessible physically and financially. Any concerns or questions are welcome, please contact us.
Financial support is needed to make this exciting opportunity a reality! Donations of all sizes are welcomed with extreme gratitude, and major sponsorships are invited as well - to discuss major sponsorship please contact us to discuss targeted advertizing to meet your organization's goals, recognition at the event in ways that best suit your organization, and charity tax receipts.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT, FINANCIAL AND OTHERWISE.
We look forward to sharing this with you - and to continuing anti-racist, feminist queer activism in Southern Alberta in 2016!
