Dina Martina: Moribund
"The most original drag performer in America today." -- Michael Musto, The Village Voice
"Dina Martina goes way beyond drag into some new kind of twisted art." -- John Waters
Cult sensation DINA MARTINA returns to L.A. with DINA MARTINA: MORIBUND at Silver Lake's Cavern Club Celebrity Theater from January 19 - 29. After attaining cult status on the west coast and touring nationally, Martina's official New York debut in 2005 sold out in minutes. Her follow-up shows have left jaded audiences (including Whoopi Goldberg, John Waters, Matt Stone, John Cameron Mitchell, Margaret Cho, Bruce Vilanch, Joyce Dewitt, and Jeff Stryker -- a list as strange has her shows) stunned and clamoring for more.
DINA MARTINA: MORIBUND is the show that wowed the crowds in Provincetown and New York City in the summer of 2011, and like all of Martina's surreal shows, it promises to be an amazing blend of unequalled song, unnecessary dance, unattractive costumes, unbelievable video and unwanted gifts for lucky audience members. Perhaps the best description of Dina comes from a glowing review in Seattle's famed alternative weekly The Stranger: "Her voice sounds like a cat having an epileptic fit on a chalkboard, her body moves like two pigs fighting their way out of a sleeping bag, and her face looks like the collision of a Maybelline truck with a Shoney's buffet. But Dina redefines what it means to be a star."
DINA MARTINA has packed venues throughout Seattle as well as in Provincetown, Philadelphia, Vancouver, Portland, San Francisco and London. Martina has shared the bill with acts such as Modest Mouse, Built To Spill, Justin Bond, Nina Hagen and The Village People. She's the recipient of two GLAAD Media Award nominations for Best Off-Off-Broadway Show, two Footlight Awards from The Seattle Times (1999 & 2004), a 1997 nominee for a Seattle Stranger Fringe Theater Award for Best Solo Show, and a finalist for the 2007 Alpert Award.
