I cannot tell you how excited I am about this show, my lovelies! Oh my. Perhaps I should tell you at least a little bit about it, shouldn't I? Where do I start? How about with the basics?
Transmission is a showcase of transgender and genderqueer performers and artists.
On this Friday and Saturday, August 3rd and 4th, and each night is unique in its collection of acts and events. I'll be doing two different numbers across the days of the run. The over 30 artists populates this show featuring art, spoken word, film, debauchery, burlesque, and hilarity. Bringing you these pieces are the incredibly diverse and talented artists and performers from the transgender and gender queer communities of the Pacific Northwest.
Did I mention I'm sharing the stage with the likes of Neon and Leon Beige, Paris Orignal, and the Athens Boys' Choir to name but a short few? I have to go fan myself for a bit with all of this excitement if you know what I mean. I'll be right back.
So after the show comes to an end, a dance party starts. I know some of you don't dance but you're not going to want to leave the show because interspersed through the evening of dancing are more performances. How could you possibly go wrong?
Our lovely and wonderful producers, the Queer Social Club, is partnering with the Kitchen Sink Project, a fabulous little operation that bills itself as "one urbanite's mission to cultivate art, music, culture and education through food." Sounds tempting, doesn't it? But wait, there's more. The Kitchen Sink Project is creating a unique menu of small bites, tastes and cocktails; each designed to represent one of the acts or artists in the show, giving you the chance to enhance your viewing with a concessions pack and adding yet another sensational way to experience the show: Each item in the pack is a tasty culinary work of to give you a taste of each act or performer. I suspect that mine might have a black licorice taste or maybe chocolate chip cookies. I have no idea what Sully has in mind and that's kind of exciting, isn't it?
This show is 18 and over!
