unbound s/he: ejaculating beauty
by Aimee Herman
What Makes You Think You’re the One
Created and Performed by Laryssa Husiak
Tickets: $15 / $12 (stu/sen)
unbound s/he: ejaculating beauty: Aimee Herman utilizes music, movement and language to translate the stories of one queer body as it unravels itself in patches of narration. unbound s/he: ejaculating beauty is a funny, sexy, and revealing portrayal of one particular journey through queerness, gender and the complications of labels.
What Makes You Think You’re the One: In a trio of live music videos, solo artist Laryssa Husiak explores the sexualization of women through repetitive thrusts and blank stares. Don’t worry, it’s not as ball-busting as it sounds: she is wearing a groovy swimsuit. The result is a ferocious dance party spun out of some classic tunes
Aimee Herman is a performative poet who has been featured at various NY venues such as Wow Cafe Theater, Sidewalk Cafe, and Happy Ending Lounge and reading series such as Sideshow: Queer Lit Carnival, The Red Umbrella Diaries, Hyper Gender, and In the Flesh erotic salon.
