A Tender Engine is a queer re-imagining of the romance between the Flying Scotsman steam locomotive and her first caretaker, Alan Pegler. Like, come on – they were obviously in love! Expect a lip-sync, a love song, multiple millionaires bankrupted, and flying trains. This performance art/experimental theatre/alternative comedy hybrid by Megan Arnold is the culmination of her final year in the Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Guelph. A digital version will be available online shortly after the event.
Megan Arnold is a Filipinx-Canadian multidisciplinary artist who wants to make you laugh and cry and cringe. She creates performances, videos, pop songs, and drawings that collapse the divisions between humour/pathos, amateurism/mastery, play/labour, and art/entertainment.
