Alexis O’Hara

The work of Alexis O’Hara embraces the transcendent danger of improvisation, using humor to lubricate the assault of her anti-racist-feminist-killjoy ways. She has released four albums, a book of poetry and enough helium-filled balloons to get her dress caught up in a chandelier. Her performances and installations have been presented in diverse contexts across the Americas and Europe. In 2016, she was awarded the Powerhouse Prize. Alexis and her alter ego, Guizo La Nuit are mainstays of the Montreal cabaret scene.
