Duct Tape Girl & Fetish Chick Conquer the World is a cartoon whirlwind of earnest attempts at the impossible. Following the tumultuous relationship of Fetish Chick and her sidekick Duct Tape Girl as they fight villains, boredom, and audience-generated nemeses, this performance invites the question: given the choice, would you ever pick loneliness?
We hijacked this project.
Fetish Chick and her sidekick Duct Tape Girl doing superhero things: it should have been a pulp novel. Or a comic book, but.
We're doing it in a living room. See if we can trick it. We'll give it a drink before you come, calm it down. Calm as it'll get, anyway.
We're raising money to make this happen. Duct tape is expensive. We need to make sure everyone has pants. We need to pay our actors.
You know how this works. We either get the full 2.5k or we get nothing. So join the fight. In the loneliest city in the world, come sit on our couch and watch as we coax comic book characters into a play. Give us ten bucks and tell us what you want us to turn into duct tape. Give us fifteen and we'll save you a seat. Give us $300 and Paz will make you a pair of duct tape boots. Pick your poison. It's all tax deductible (we know the tax guy).
So join us. Every donation counts in the fight against loneliness. We'll thank you—gruffly, but you'll know that it's heartfelt.

Risks and challenges
The road may be rough, but we're ready. We're artists living in Brooklyn. We're scrappy and resourceful, as long as we have our fair-trade shade-grown coffee. We've had our fair share of near-artistic-death experiences, and we've seen what happens to other people making art in this city: floods, lightning strikes, the flu. If the power goes out, we'll light the show with flashlights. If the building burns down, we'll find another living room. If the whole cast gets norovirus—well—for health and safety reasons, we'll move the show to another day. We can do that, because we're doing the play in a living room.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
