Alexis O’Hara: OUFF


Late capitalism, youth culture, white privilege, oh my! OUFF is an onomatopoeia, the heaviest of sighs. A deconstruction of white privilege in all its ugly shades. The costume mutates and the décor expands to threaten us all. This is the non-white of whiteness, a rich-lady rosé, the sad sick beige of a dirty bandage, an angry, saggy fake-tan.


Alexis O’Hara has toured internationally with spoken-noise performances and sound installations that abet spontaneous musical collaboration between strangers. She has dropped four albums and enough helium balloons to get her dress caught in a chandelier. Alexis and her drag king alter ego, Guizo LaNuit, are pillars of the Montreal cabaret scene.
