Dark Day Monday is a curated monthly performance series featuring artists who defy expectations and break boundaries. We seek out acts that explore, play, and fuck with performance forms or genres.
Dark Day Monday is focused on representing diverse performance talent from all genres and disciplines. We want to see something different. We prioritize featuring BIPOC, LGBTQAI++ and 2S performers and content. We want to showcase talent from all of Toronto’s creative communities, not just the ones who feel at home on traditional stages. We are a socially conscious event, and have a zero tolerance policy for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of hatred.
The Dirty Dollar:
Because we’re artists, we know that art is worth paying for. We offer a door split to all artists who perform, with a guarantee. We have a mandate to provide fair compensation to all our collaborators. We will never make more than the artists who perform on our stages, and we’ll show them the books to prove it. Profits from DDM events go back into the series, paying for upkeep, and to make future events even more spectacular for the artists and patrons.
