Because my life is a performance art work in progress, and dignity is overrated. Local to DC? Come out and join in the shenanigans!
The perfect storm of high femme and lowbrow, I’m the velvet-voiced vamp with the dangerous curves who’s hell on heels. As Diva Darling, I perform in the DC-Baltimore variety scene with neo-burlesque acts and cabaret vocals.
I want to tell you all the stuff that I love in our Midsummer’s Burlesque Dream at Capital Fringe 2016 so that you will understand why you really NEED to come out and play with us, but since this *is* a Midsummer burlesque after all, let me just tease you with some of the reasons why you’ll come out of our show feeling upbeat and happy and energized and generally feeling great about life!
Come out and Slam with me, darlings! The ever-fabulous Mindi Mimosa and I are hosting this fantastic live storytelling open mic every month now.
Live in DC, and you quickly realize that people here are so into work, it’s almost a fetish– but after hours, buttoned-down turns to unbuttoned and getting down. Get your freak on with your fellow workaholics at this happiest of hours with stories of all the jobs you’ve had…and the workplaces where you got them.
(Not familiar with Smut Slam? It’s a storytelling open mic where audience members sign up for 5-minute slots to tell their best real-life, first-person, consensual sex stories. It’s queer-friendly, kink-friendly, lifestyle-friendly, body-positive, sex-positive, and wildly fun. No costumes, no notes, no gimmicks, just straight-up raw truth! See the full rules and how it works on our Rules of the Road page.)
This month, our theme is “Work Hard, Play Harder”. Give us some workplace confessions– the time you steamed up your cubicle while blowing off steam with that hot colleague, the cringeworthy fallout from the company holiday party, the time you spent that all-hands meeting sexting with your sweetie. Tonight, when someone asks you that obnoxiously DC question, “So, what do you do?”, just smirk and tell them, “Joe in Accounting”.
Your fabulous femme-cees will be Smut Slam DC co-producers Mindi Mimosa and Diva Darling, joined by a panel of local celebrity judges (TBA) who have clearance for all your top secrets.
**Doors at 7:30, Show at 8:30**
As always, the Fuckbucket (where audience members can throw in anonymous confessions or questions) is generously sponsored by nJoy sex toys. Prizes for exceptional storytelling may include event tickets, sex toys, gift cards, or other swag donated by fabulous local sponsors.
