Perfomance | La MaMa's SQUIRTS: New Voices in Queer Performance

140107 lamamasquirts 145x145
January 3–12, 2014

For two weeks, curator and host Dan Fishback rallies the brashest new voices of the queer stage for a peak into the future of underground, revolutionary queer art-making. Ranging from drag and cabaret to spoken word and theater, each of these young artists take cues from their predecessors while reinventing their forms through the singular weirdness of their own individual visions. Each night of SQUIRTS will also feature a guest legend – an established icon of the queer performance world. Join multiple generations of queer performers as we celebrate the legacy of downtown theatrics and the precocious audacity of the millennial mind.
