Abstract (summary)
Based on interviews with the DitchWitch Brigade, who created Miss Toronto Acts Back, this review discusses the group’s multimedia, semi-historical, stylistically diverse montage that playfully examined the story of the Miss Toronto Beauty Pageant, while questioning issues of beauty, gender performance, and spectator- performer relations.
