Robert Dayton Junior Presents:
AN EVENING WITH THE CANADIAN ROMANTIC
Saturday July 2
Blue Sunshine Psychotronic Film Centre
3660, Boul. St-Laurent, 3e Étage
This will be a one of a kind evening that combines large amounts of shared laughter with soft music and unsettling feelings of desire…!
Robert Dayton’s most recent project is his series of videos and performances as the persona of The Canadian Romantic, a melodramatic figure of faded glamour who tries to bridge the gap between Canada and romance with somewhat dubious results…. Some key Canadian Romantic videos will be played and a BRAND NEW VIDEO will be unveiled! The Canadian Romantic himself will be performing live, taking topic suggestions from the crowd for his infamous impromptu candlelight Recitations. Expect glittery Bon Mots aplenty from a man of way too much experience. You will come alive with laughter feeling like you’ve woken up at an undisclosed time with make up smeared across your face.
After that will be a curated tour of the forgotten musical Recitation genre, which also includes the notion of famous Ac-tor as Singer: expect the plummy tones of Telly Savalas, Bruno Gerussi, Richard Harris, and a few glorious unknowns! This musical genre has been a key influence on The Canadian Romantic.
