Fame Prayer / EATING is an attempt to queer spirituality. A performance which reimagines "self-help book" ideologies and pop culture spiritual texts as strategies for the body and choreography.

A rigorously undisciplined performance created by dance artist Andrew Tay (Montreal), visual and performance artist François Lalumière (Montreal), and photographer and performance artist Katrzyna Szugajew (Poland), Fame Prayer / EATING is a queer space of worship, a critique of healing culture, and a transgressive and disorientating performance for the audience to engage with.

"Andrew Tay discusses genders and colors with panache and personality, without judging or categorizing, but with intensity and attitude. [An] hyper-creative choreographer which get to the bottom of complex universes where the balance of power oscillates dangerously between proximity and hostility [...] Andrew Tay demonstrates an articulate style, a strong symbolism, and his body expresses powerfully more than he interprets."
— Translated from Marion Gerbier, DF DANSE (about On power and permission)

Created and performed by Andrew Tay, François Lalumière, Katrzyna Szugajew
