Tonight, get a preview of the HOT, HOT, HOT shows that will be part of this year’s HOT! Festival at Dixon Place. I am so excited to be co-producing Electrify Gender! in this year’s fest with Essence Revealed on August 1st / 10pm / Dixon Place.
Electrify Gender! is an evening celebrating the spectrum of gender and sexualities through burlesque, spoken word and performance art. On this night, gender is bent and retranslated. It is twisted into a new discourse as performers question how bodies can experiment with the many versions of masculine and feminine. Featured performers include: Crimson Kitty, Sweet Lorraine, Bonnie Forest, Jherelle Benn, JZ Bich, Switch N’ Play, Essence Revealed and Aimee Herman.
Tonight, we will shimmy out a quick teaser to get your blood boiling, featuring the tantalizing Bonnie Forest. The entire night will feature many sneak previews of the HOT shows. For more information about the HOT! Festival:
HOT!, the oldest continually running GBLTQ festival in the world, has been a pioneer of queer arts and culture for over 20 years. Dixon Place is proud that HOT! serves as a model for other queer festivals across the globe, and offers an artistic refuge to so many passionate voices in our community. For over 20 years, the Dixon Place HOT! Festival has been presenting the most OUTrageous and OUTstanding Queer Performance. The Village Voice calls us “The Best LGBTQ Theater Festival in New York” — and 2013 is shaping up to be even bigger, better, and HOTTER than ever!
As always, HOT! is incredibly diverse and inclusive with over 200 artists presenting work that push your buttons, stir your emotions and deliver explicit, flat out entertainment. It’s a natural extension of New York City’s Gay Pride Month, with the best in LGBTQ culture and entertainment throughout the entire month of July and into August.
