Rye is a perennial grass that grows to 1.8 meters or taller. It is well-suited to establish roots in cosmopolitan environments and is a disease-resistant crop, which is cherished for its high-energy dancing and unique stage presence. When in human form, Rye is an intersex genderqueer performer who uses acrobatic contemporary moves to tell sentimental stories.
Rye has performed on Toronto’s best and queerest stages, bartops and park benches. In these digital times, they have entered the First Annual Burlesque Festival, the Mx. Meltdown Pageant, and Now’s Toronto 2020 best Twitch stream, Speakeasy Tattoo. Rye always brings a full production and irresistible seduction, with their edgy mix of drag and burlesque.
