Evan can't always maintain the role and sometimes slips up. By weaving together video, performance and storytelling, a queer tale merges into a papier mache hammer.

After the performance, you can watch episodes of ARtFUnSHACK online. Check out the channel to stay tuned in.

Created and performed by Evan Ifekoya @evan_ife
Filming by Katarzyna Perlak and Hayley Reid

Derby Crazy Love

Derby Crazy Love

16:00 - Derby Crazy Love accompanies Montreal's top team, New Skids on the Block, on its exhilarating journey to regional championships, where they face off in a pitched battle against U.K. powerhouse, London Rollergirls, and reigning world champions, New York's Gotham Girls. New Skids players and their British and U.S. rivals share stories of being powerful women in traditional sports, along with insights about derby's recent rebirth, after decades of decline, as a vibrant, original expression of third wave feminism and Amazon-like physicality rooted in punk's colorful DIY counterculture. Deftly tackling issues of masculinity, femininity, aggression, body image, queer identity and gender norms, this fast-paced yet reflective film captures the spirit of community, inclusiveness, and sisterhood at derby's core today.
