IGNITE! 2017 IGNITE CLUBS!

Sleaze

Join us for an outrageous one night (art) stand.

The IGNITE! Club Series is an art party, a multi-disciplinary performance party. It’s an exploratory, off-the-wall, never-before-seen, might-not-ever-be-seen-again: performance experiences.

All of the work at this art club are created around the theme of SLEAZE. An eploration of all things sex, excess, gender blender / blending / identifying, and over the top sex pop flare. We celebrate the lewd, rude, risqué and sexual on this one night of new performative work.

For the evening we are taking over the whole bar of Venue 628.

IGNITE! Club: Prophecy is a multi-disciplinary performance party. It’s an exploratory, off-the-wall, never-before-seen, might-not-ever-be-seen-again: performance experiences.
