We are producing a one-night event at Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO on Friday, July 23rd. The theme for this unforgettable night is "sexual taboos". The night will feature Desert Sin, Vangeline Theater, Rose Wood, Ms Tickle, and Anya Sapozhnikova. Themes include masturbation, incest, and confrontational ideas about gender and sexuality. We have put together a quality and unique showcase of some of NY's most innovative talent that will stand out from other variety shows. An erotic and thought-provoking night of Butoh, Burlesque, Tango, Performance Art, Theatrical Dance, and Aerial!

The money we raise is going towards rehearsal space, costumes, sets, and most importantly, to help pay the performers!
