12:28 am - June 12: Second Annual Sex Worker Cabaret

wondergirl
Join us for the Second Annual Sex Worker Cabaret on Sunday, June 12, 2011!

Sex workers take the stage to tell their diverse stories through performance, narrative, puppetry, burlesque, comedy and more. This event starts with a curated selection of video works about sex work around the globe, and then features an all-star lineup of eleven performers.

Producers Sarah Jenny and Damien Luxe are proud to present this Sunday evening cabaret showcasing some of the most vibrant creative talent in the sex worker community. The cabaret is in homage to Annie Oakley’s Sex Workers Art Show (1997-2009) and takes place during LGBTQ Pride month, a time to reflect on the importance of community. Come listen to tales of self-determination, and bear witness to survival and celebration as sex workers eloquently — and at times raunchily — speak their truths.

With MCs Sarah Jenny and Damien Luxe and DJ Sirlinda!

WHEN: Sunday, June 12, 2011
TIME: DOORS @ 7:30PM, VIDEOS @ 8PM SHOW @ 8:30PM

1:59 pm - NYC: Sex Worker Cabaret- Call For Performers (Sunday, June 12, 2011)

wondergirl
Sex Worker Cabaret - Call For Performers
Sunday, June 12, 2011

Share Your Sex Worker Pride this June at the Sex Worker Cabaret on June 12th at Public Assembly in Brooklyn, New York!

Submit your proposals here >>>>> http://www.sexworkercabaret.com

We are looking for cabaret acts of 3-7 minutes each for an early evening (7pm -11pm) event: burlesque, performance art, literary readings, comedy, video art, musical acts, etc. are all welcomed.

Diversity encouraged! All genders, bodies, ages, and talents welcome to apply. We are currently looking for proposals that would be, on some level, about sex work: whether it be a story about your favorite/least favorite client, a burlesque number to She Works Hard For the Money, or a more abstract interpretation. Preference is given to current/former sex workers (self-defined) but we will also consider topical submissions from allies, partners of workers, etc.

Please submit a short proposal by April 7, 2011 about the act you are interested in doing. If we don’t know one another, please send a link to your website, facebook, etc. or a link to a video.

Compensation: This is a benefit for…you! Some overhead costs need to be covered but after that, all money received from the door will be pooled and split among the performers. (Each act is a share in the pool; each video is a half-share) We ask that you help promote as the more people we bring in, the more money for the performers. We can help out of town performers find housing, but are unable to provide travel stipends.

We are also looking for go-go dancers who would be compensated with part of the pooled funds -- but also receive tips. Go-go dancing is 7pm-8pm and during intermission. You may apply to both perform and go-go.

Please forward to anyone you think might like to be a part of this very special evening.

Deadline: Please submit your proposal by April 7th.
Submit your proposals here >>>>> http://www.sexworkercabaret.com

9:34 am - Fair Tales: A Fairy Tale Themed Burlesque Revue

snuzzlebunnies
We all have dreams. We all have stories that we've told ourselves to get one step closer to those dreams. On April 20th, Nexus Nightlife brings us back to the roots of our childhood fantasies. Through the works of Hans Christian Andersen, the Grimm brothers and traditional folklore, Nexus Nightlife brings you into the world of magic that lies in our memory, lingering behind our eyelids. From performances of the story of the Little Mermaid to a burlesque retelling of the Emperor's New Clothes, we explore the fairy world full of long tales and of myths that, even grown, we cannot forget. Join us for 'Fair Tales,' a celebration of fairy tales and of myths that rejoices in the fact that, even as adults, we are always children inside.

'Fair Tales' will be held at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. Just a short walk from the Bedford Avenue L, Public Assembly is located at 70 North 6th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211.

Christopher Bousquet is a contortionist whose demeanor and acts are sure to guarantee a smile. Based in the city, Christopher can be seen winding his ways into various shows in New York.

Holly Ween has performed at various shows with White Elephant Burlesque and Cosplay Burlesque in New York and New Jersey. Staying true to her name, each one of her acts has a bit of the macabre in them!

Kristen Lee is a recent addition to the New York burlesque scene. With her coy mannerisms and the petite figure to match, Kristen keeps her audience on a tight leash.

Lily Stitches has performed burlesque with the White Elephant Burlesque Society and Cosplay Burlesque. With her class acts and her perky personality, Lily is a sure crowd pleaser.

Miss Em is one hot act. A fire eater and accomplished burlesque performer, Miss Em brings up the heat at any show, making the audience thirst for more.

Scarlet Stepford, member of the Channel 4 Plastics and Cosplay Burlesque, is a welcome addition to Nexus Nightlife's cast. With her interpretation of classic striptease, Scarlet brings a large contribution of the theatrical to Nexus Nightlife.

Lo Hung has performed burlesque with Cosplay Burlesque at conventions spanning from Virginia, New Jersey and New York. With his often anime influenced acts, he's a fan girl favorite.

For more information regarding this event, or to speak with Christopher Lee, please call him at 240.515.7303 or email him at christopher@nexusnightlife.com.
