- New York Times
“One of the coolest, most uniquely blended crowds around—pussies, faggots, dykes, trannies, you name it.”
- Time Out New York
Following a presentation of Joey Arias In Concert last fall at Heimathafen, Brooklyn-based curator and producer Earl Dax returns to Berlin with his acclaimed NYC performance art party PUSSY FAGGOT! Part of a two-week European tour, the Berlin edition is presented together with Expatriarch, one of the city’s leading queer forces as a trifecta of radio, bookings and event production.
PUSSY FAGGOT! Berlin takes place at Monster Ronson’s with headlining DJ Lady Miss Kier (of Deee-Lite! fame), plus additional NYC talent including performing artist Gio Black Peter, a star of Bruce LaBruce’s Otto or Up with Dead People; countertenor, pianist, composer and songwriter M. Lamar; soulful pop singer/producer Adam Joseph, gay dance music artist Shane Shane; and multimedia performance artist Colin Self presenting an excerpt from Elation, an operetta about the rise of feminine consciousness in the 21st century.
Rounding out the evening are local stars including DJ Dickey Doo, cabaret star Cora Frost, DJ Joel Gibb of The Hidden Cameras, electro-hip-hop duo Scream Club, avant-folk singer Mary Ocher, Pork promoter and performer Brian Tennessee Claflin, and the evening’s host, Alexander Geist.
About PUSSY FAGGOT!: Encompassing performance art, spoken word, dance, drag, live music, DJs and video art, PUSSY FAGGOT! is fiercely contemporary even as it harks back to the legendary East Village scene of the 80s and 90s when art, fashion, performance and club culture collided. Internationally, PUSSY FAGGOT! has presented at festivals in Manchester, UK and Zagreb, Croatia. Back in the United States, the party has traveled everywhere from Philadelphia to New Orleans – and even a rural farm in Tennessee! The site-specific nature of PUSSY FAGGOT! has lent itself to successful iterations in a range of venues including nightclubs, dive bars, art galleries and barns.
”You have to admit, ‘Pussy Faggot’ is a catchy title for a party. It pairs male and female, straight and gay, and as an epithet it’s pleasantly jocular. It’s so extreme it’s funny.”
