NEW YORK—Monday, December 3, Darling House will present The Other American Dream, a remarkable evening of performance, discussion, and art held at the Galapagos Art Space. Doors open at 8 pm and the show begins at 9 pm.
The Other American Dream is a night of burlesque, acclaimed nude photography, music, magic and more, in celebration of figures on the frontier of New American Sexuality, a cultural Wild West where straight, gay, traditional, polyamorous, vanilla and kinky citizens find common ground of acceptance of a new and more integrated definition of our sex lives.
The evening will be emceed by Bastard Keith, who also frequently hosts the Floating Kaberette at Galapagos, as well as many other burlesque events in New York City. The Other American Dream has three major components: The Revue, The Salon and The Gallery.
• The Revue: A stage show headlined by an aerial performance by Stoya and featuring burlesque by Madame Rosebud and Stormy Leather; music by the Reformed Whores; magic by Eric Walton; standup by Brandon B; and an Exposé on Real-Life Pirates & Pornography by J. M. Darling.
• The Salon: A live interview hosted by Sovereign Syre with the most fascinating figures in Frontier Sexuality: Buck Angel, Lux Alptraum and Stoya. Includes a complimentary drink.
• The Gallery: A one-night art show highlighting the work of the country’s leading erotic photographers, including Nathan Appel, Richard Avery, Bob Coulter, J.M. Darling, Dastardly Dave, Otto von Erotica, Natasha Gornik, Haus of Se7en, Kencredible, Dave Naz, George Pitts, Corwin Prescott, Steve Prue, Collin J. Rae, Holly Randall, Nate “Igor” Smith, Tony Stamolis, Viva Van Story and others. Prints of their celebrated works will be available at an amazingly affordable one-night price.
