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.

“An hour of debauchery straight from the gritty gay bars of Berlin...Largely a dance piece, with vigorously athletic and erotic choreography performed by seven skilled performers who are in remarkably good shape and often mostly undraped. Their movement veers between balletic, playful, graphic, a...
