Back from a long hibernation returns that Arty Party that just won't quite, BANZI!!!!! Presenting over 50 of the most wowtastic artists in todays nightlife, performance, and modern art scenes in a mix of frenzied, creative commotion.
Aiming to immediately disrupt the context in which the viewer expects to experience art and performance MUFFINHEAD and ERIC SCHMALENBERGER bring together creative and experimental geniuses whose exploding energy plays well within their vision of an artistic wonderland. Here is a home for anyone willing to travel to the limits of their imagination. More then just an art event or a performance event BANZAI cross pollinates the best aspects of the creative community and encourages them to get down and dirty with each other, wrestle in the mud, possibly make out for a little bit, and go home more awesome then before That's right we get concepts to make out with each other.
This evening promises to bring you psychedelic excess, feminist bondage, dadist punk musical moments, tragic glamour, painters pizza parties, and more glitter then you have seen in a very long time.
Performances will include the spandex wonder that is Shane Shane, the glamorously perverted and delightfully twisted burlesque of Dee Dee Luxe, the gothic contortions of The Rachel Klien Theater Ensemble, BANZAI!!!!'s touch stone Soigné Deluxe, our mythic dark darling Johanna Constantine, and of course the worlds number one transsexual AMANDA LEPORE.
Post the performances stay around for a dance courtesy of DJ SCOTT EWALT!!!
So please if you don't mind, put together your most shocking look, prepare your self for launch, because the count down has started. Banzai!!!!!! We will very likely blow your mind and if not, we will definitely fondle it for a little while.
THE PRESS HAS SAID OF BANZAI!!!!!:
"It (Banzai) was, for lack of a better word, FIERCE. The crowd was amazing The talent on stage was brilliant. Anytime I hear the laments over the loss of the "good ol' days" I want to shake them and stir them." Steve Lewis for Black Book Magazine
"Ultra-modern mixed-media art circus" Next Magazine
"Banzai- the refreshing twist on an evening of art and performance is exactly what this city needs" Paper Magazine
