Garage All-Stars II
Part of the National Queer Arts Festival
Video and performance artist Kevin Seaman presents new work exploring his taboo love of all things pink and girly and the talents of Russian psychic, Dr. Zebrovski. Kevin Seaman is a 28 year old queer San Francisco resident that creates performance and video art with an absurd and comedic edge. By creating accessible and humorous work, he brings smiles to the faces of down-trodden people and belonging to those dealing with issues of isolation, acceptance, depression, and queer identity. Kevin has a background in theatre including various styles of (classical, Shakespearean, improvisational, and sketch comedy) acting and (ballet, tap, modern) dance, as well as costume design and construction but has fallen out of love with the world of traditional theatre. He continues to develop his skills in creating and presenting independent performance art and expanding his knowledge of video production and post-production.
ShameNoShame! Created by Harvey Rabbit, Directed by Dan Griffiths. Do you ever feel like there's a monster chasing you, and it's so huge and scary that you can't fight it off? The monster invades you, becomes you. It's raw sexuality. It's societal mores. It's Puritanism and fear of death. Do you ever want to feel good and then feel guilty about the things that make you feel good? ShameNoShame! is an unapologetic and ridiculous glimpse at the internal conflicts listed above. Also, it will make you laugh.
Dante Anthony Baylor will attempt to examine the notion of "dream state" in my work. An exploration of this idea will be done using various techniques that include illustrations, photographs, wearable sculptures, video and performance. "I am new to the Bay area recently arriving here from New York City having received an AAS degree in Fashion Design from The Fashion Institute of Technology. The last four years of my life was spent working as a Costume Assistant for The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. While working with the Ailey Company, I received extensive training in modern dance techniques, which include Horton and Dunham, with a minor concentration on Ballet. Currently I am working on my BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute where I am studying a program called New Genres. The purpose of these courses is to force the artist to discover other ways of communicating his vision without feeling restricted to one particular medium."
