Aliens land at The Bentway!
A vibrant and otherworldly performance at The Bentway's Summer 2023 season opener
The Bentway’s summer season, Beyond Concrete, officially kicks off tomorrow with an evening launch party open to the public from 7:00-11:00 p.m.
The evening will feature an energetic performance by Filipino artist Leeroy New’s The Aliens of Manila. The Aliens of Manila is a vibrant set of sculptural costumes made from up-cycled plastics sourced from local Toronto homes, restaurants, convention centres, and nightclubs. At first glance eye-catching and otherworldly, the Aliens’ appearance invites the city to dive “beyond the concrete” and celebrate the launch of an exciting summer season of programming at The Bentway.
