About the show

With a heady mix of music, dance, visual arts, lights, sounds and a maverick attitude, this new work depicts the raw, dark, and sometimes outlandish sexual journey people travel, in search of identity and freedom. 

Philadelphia performance artist Gunnar Montana and his band of misfits ​will ​examine the impulses that make us vulnerable, ultimately allowing us to celebrate the expressions​ that make us powerful. Set in an underground nightclub, the young multi-faceted performance artist and his cast examine the impulses that excite us when fantasy, fetish, and carnal desire are at play.

Fierce!, Fabulous!, Raunchy, Edgy, Exquisite

See it if You’re a fan of Broadway Bares. If you like erotica with a bit of a message this is the show for you. Fun! Hot! Sexy! Edgy! Cool! Emotional!

Don't see it if You want a plot or depth of meaning. There’s is a lot more going on here than skin but if you have a problem with sex you’ll never see it.

Vigorous, Athletic, Colorful, Dated

See it if you would like to see a sequence of colorful, mildly kinky dance numbers performed by agile young men & women in fairly amazing costumes.

Don't see it if you are expecting to see anything startlingly new.

Also All of the numbers in this set of kind of kinky dances please the eye.... Read more Read less

Edgy, Great staging, Raunchy, Resonant, Experimental

See it if Underground gender-fluid dance odyssey in a sex dungeon through the lens of a club kid. LaMama brings the experimental mild kink downtown.

Don't see it if Apart from gay slurs, nudity, a power tool, drug use, and sex toys, the lines of kink aren't heavily drawn. By NYC theatre standards, anyway

Also At under an hour, you'll crave even more.

Dance extravaganza, athletic and gay, gay, gay

See it if Amazingly skillful and supple dancers in a spectacle of gay affirmation & eroticism. The gorgeous, sculpted acrobats are all over the floor.

Quirky, Overrated, Indulgent, Fluffy, Great staging

See it if You want a barrage of color, music & sex. A highly stylized piece that excites with aggressive choreo, inventive costumes & great songs.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with anything outside the box. This show felt so polished until it abruptly came to an end. Left me feeling had.

73
Entertaining, Sexy, Great dancing, Clever

See it if You like strong sexy dancing and dancers. You aren’t offended by nudity.

Don't see it if You might be triggered by serious depiction of cocaine use - one number features a pile of cocaine and repeated “snorting” of it - NOT COOL

Also Given the title I thought there would be more actual “kink” involved b... Read more Read less

See it if you're interested in a performance art dance piece that looks like candy but with provocative themes offers something more substantial.

93
Moving, Pansexual, Erotic, Intimate, Creative choreography

See it if you appreciate the amazing abilities of the human body and how it can express emotions through dance, drag, acting, and movement.

Don't see it if nakedness and intimacy, both emotional and physical, is not something you want to see up close; you hold narrow views of beauty and strength

Cliched, Excruciating, Indulgent, Raunchy, Disappointing

See it if you want to go to a strip club without going to a strip club with eally good dancing, albeit problematically gendered and stereotypical!

Raunchy, Intense, Funny, Riveting, Fabulous

See it if you are looking for a highly-stylized, energizing, surprising production with excellent choreography, and brilliant lighting and set design.

“An insane and rollicking underground club...Just the outlandish costumes alone would make for a hoot of a show, but Montana doesn’t stop there.
