The Performance Bus:
Syrus Marcus Ware: Vaseline in his Back Pocket
11 Jan 2012
Artist and DJ Syrus Marcus Ware turns The Performance Bus into his memory of a circa 2001 – 2002 Friday night Vazaleen party that was hosted by Will Munro, Miss Barbrafisch, and Rawbrt at the El Mo (with a bear pit and all!). On Wednesday, January 11, ride out there to the opening reception of Will Munro: History, Glamour, Magic on the free performance bus departing OCADU at 6 PM sharp. Bring your memories and your dancing shoes…

Syrus Marcus Ware is a visual artist, community activist, researcher, youth-advocate, and educator. He is Program Coordinator of the Teens Behind the Scenes program at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Through the mediums of painting, installation, and performance, Syrus challenges systemic oppression and explores the spaces between and around identities; acting as provocations to our understandings of gender, sexuality, and race. For the past 6 years, Syrus has worked with Blackness Yes to produce Blockorama (the black queer and trans stage at Pride), and is a founding member of the Prison Justice Action Committee of Toronto.
