She Devils of Niagara: Act 1
1985, colour, English
The Clichettes were active in Toronto from 1978 to 1992. With choreography in their collective backgrounds, Louise Garfield, Janice Hladki and Johanna Householder came together to form The Clichettes, a highly suspect girl-group which used lip-sync as a vehicle for political satire. Throughout the 80s they performed at countless benefits and art events.They developed four feature-length theatrical extravaganzas: Half- Human, Half-Heartache (1980), She-Devils of Niagara (1985), Up Against the Wallpaper (1988/89) and Out for Blood (1990), all of which received popular and critical acclaim for their bizarre blend of pop culture spoof and sci-fi feminism laced with a high camp aesthetic. In 1984, The Clichettes won the National Lip-Sync Championships in Houston, Texas.
