Jamie MacDonald

Jamie MacDonald will host the opening ceremony of the New Performance Turku Biennale on Tuesday, September 5th. Audience is welcome to join the opening event after Every house has a door and Essi Kausalainen: The Fossil Record performance.

Jamie MacDonald is a Canadian-Finnish queer transgender nuisance who has been performing on Finnish and international stages since 2004, and who’s made himself a household name in the red-green bubble. He’s co-created several community-driven projects, including Feminist Comedy Night and Feminist Comedy Academy, Punch Up! – Resistance and Glitter, and the monthly queer salon Attic Underground. His most recent solo show, Cuck, takes on fatherhood, masculinity, and humiliation, which sounds really quite high-brow but it’s rather a lot of queer butt jokes. He’s currently doing a PhD at Uniarts Helsinki, on those queer butt jokes.
