Yay spring colors!

“Wait…they expected STRIPPERS?” The glares from the audience confirm that whatever they expected, this North Carolina lesbian bar audience is not happy with our fully-clothed arts. In the middle of touring the first Heels on Wheels Glitter Roadshow, my annual…
I’m part of this awesome group called Heels on Wheels and we are going on our 5th annual tour!
I’m co-producing and touring on the the fifth annual Heels on Wheels Glitter Roadshow, in the Northeast U.S and Canada April 11th – 20th 2014!
Heels on Wheels is a NYC-based group of queer femme-inine spectrum artists and organizers. The show itself consists of six performers, local acts in every city – and a dance party if you’re lucky! The 2014 Glitter Roadshow features myself Damien Luxe, Heather Ács, Shomi Noise, Sabina Ibarrola, Angel Nafis, Alvis Parsley, and wrangler artist Lizxnn Disaster.
The Heels on Wheels Glitter Roadshow tours the US annually with a dazzling, diverse cabaret of performance art works and acts of resistance by queer folks of femme-inine spectrum genders. The fearless artists rampage from hi-femme to femmedrogyny in a wild revue of visceral poetic performance, emotional escape plans, high femme drag, multimedia mermaids, and rocknroll you can sink your heels into!

Shomi Noise plays guitar and reads from her zine series “Building Up Emotional Muscles,” the story of her journey as a Bolivian immigrant navigating U.S. culture and finding herself through alternative music scenes. Damien Luxe’s multimedia “Femme Footprints In The Sand” plays with mermaids and powdered milk to explore thriving past poverty and trauma. Heather Ács’ “Welcome to the Waldorf Hysteria” uses multi-media high-femme drag histrionics to reach beyond language and ask, what do we gain when we lose control? Angel Nafis’ poetry celebrates the everything and everywhere of her world, of love and divinity, of her black girl brilliance in its vastness and depth. Alvis Parsley focuses on their experiences as a genderqueer person of color questioning roles, responsibilities of institutions, authority, and the ecosystem of the arts with both humor and tenderness. Sabina Ibarrola melts down and melts hearts in a pop culture performative exploration of breaking up and breaking through with the help of karaoke and Carrie Bradshaw. This year also includes a video program including work by Louis Chavez, Kristin Li, Ellie Beth, Jacqueline Mary, and Celeste Chan.

Heels on Wheels is a Brooklyn-based group of interdisciplinary artists who create performance-based cultural works and community events that have a feminist and radical agenda, are produced from sites of femme/inine-positive queer embodiment, and reveal the power in under-represented communities.
