Zombie connoisseurs will love Montreal’s Dead Dolls

Being dead is a full-time gig for Dead Dolls dancer and choreographer Velma Candyass. “We have a show almost every week,” she says. “We’re always in costume-creation mode.” The Dolls are a grimey gorlesque troupe, grown out of the ashes of Travesty Theatre’s vaudeville show. They crawl out of the swamp just in time for Carnival on February 21 with the southern-flavoured Swamp Pussy Revival. Expect Mardi Gras beads, boobs and booze along with prizes, special guests and an audience limbo contest.
