"fluffer theatre"

March 2011

Co-founded by BrydenMacDonald and HugoDann, fluffer is the new queer kid in Halifax’s thriving theatre scene. Both Dann and MacDonald define queer theatre as being about more than just sexual orientation or gender expression. “We define queer theatre as coming from the margins,” says Dann. “We’re fascinated by playwrights such as Bouchard, or Alec Butler, or Sonja Mills, who write poetically about queer themes.” MacDonald quickly adds, “But we also love writers like Don Druick or Sean Dixon. These authors might define themselves as straight, but because of their strikingly original way of looking at the dynamics between male and female we define them as queer, as writing from the edge. Sexy!”
