BACKGROUND:
The 1920s Pansy Craze was a short-lived movement that brought Queer performers to the stage, performing transgressive gender identities despite laws prohibiting them. Performing in speakeasies across the country, they broke through to mainstream audiences with their outrageous mix of camp wit, androgynous poise and savior faire.

Buffet Flats originated when Harlem apartment owners opened their homes to provide overnight accommodations to black travelers who were refused service in white-owned establishments. Later these apartments evolved into renowned venues, serving up an exuberant mix of artistic risk to satisfy a variety of subversive tastes and pleasures. Diverse audiences came from all over to eat, drink, sing, dance, and participate in the creative revelry.

The Pansy Craze and the Buffet Flats happened simultaneously but were, for the most part, divided along racial lines. However, Jean Malin, grande dame of the Pansy Craze, acted forcefully to try to integrate Pansy Craze culture. Seth Eisen will revive the spirit of Jean Malin and in his persona act as host to all of our Buffet Flat events.

WHAT:
In this spirit we are creating a traveling series of home theater salons aimed at nourishing the mind, spirit and belly. We invite guests to gather at homey local spots, to share knowledge, good company, delicious food and homespun performance and art. On a tour of different homes and gardens of the Bay Area we cross-pollinate Queer culture with the slow-food and urban-farming movements.

Gathering food from community gardens and local farms, guest cooks prepare and serve sumptuous mini meals. Experts in various fields present stimulating ideas for debate and conversation. In between courses guests enjoy a themed evening of performances and art.


WE @ BUFFET FLATS:

RAISE awareness about how to grow and access local food.
We unite queer culture with the discourse about food and sustainability.

PROVIDE a forum for learning about local food sources and sharing diverse culinary approaches.

CONNECT communities of art, performance, cuisine, local history and eco literacy.

LINK the flourishing performance and foodie cultures and the places they intersect.

ENCOURAGE collaborations /cross-pollination between food activist and artists.
