“Equally funny and dangerous” CBC Radio

evalyn parry is an award-winning Canadian theatre maker, writer and musician. Steeped in the folk tradition but born to innovate, her boundary-blurring work is inspired by intersections of history, autobiography and contemporary social activism; her performances have explored everything from 19th century cycling heroines to bottled water, from queer identity to the quest for the Northwest Passage.  Whether accompanying herself on guitar, water bottle, shruti box or loop pedals – or joined by a percussionist playing an amplified bicycle — parry takes her unique perspective on the world and transforms it into art that spans genres, genders and generations.
