PERFORMANCE

Ave Bambi

Ave Bambi is the imagined ritual worship of a drag queen deity inspired by the Vestal Virgins of Rome, night life culture, and trance cults. The piece presents a world where the dance hall is the temple of womanhood and the drag queen its goddess incarnate. Lost in the mantra of "I'm so next level," two women perform a virtuosic duet verging on manic devotional in this demonstration of love, fear, reverence, and power.

Six Movements to the Music of Nicki Minaj

Named one of Dance Magazine’s “Best of 2012,” Six Movements is like lip-syncing in the mirror to your favorite song. It is full of glitter & spectacle & naiveté. It is a drag queen traversing a postmodern world & it is utterly fabulous if not utterly flawed.

the beautifuls*

A sickening/ extravagant/ selfish/ belligerent evening-length duet, the beautifuls exemplifies both the limitless arrogance and endemic ignorance of being young and fabulous. It is a boisterous collage of dancing, speaking, screaming, twerking, and generally showing off to a medley of pop songs. the beautifuls is the direct result of unchecked ego as the performers vie for the love and attention of those watching.

*not suitable for those with an aversion to glitter, glamor, or extreme narcissism
