The day we all grew up calling Halloween
actually emanated from an ancient Gaelic holiday called "Samhain"
(pronounced SAW-win), when the mystical veil between this world
and the next is said to be the thinnest. If that notion intrigues
you, BRIC Studio proposes that you come in costume to experience
with the music and theater of "Gender in a Blender: A Halloween
Immerse yourself in the unpredictable worlds of drag and lesbian performance art. The program includes an invocation by self-described "dyke singer-songwriter-playwright" Daisy, music by Yolanda, and performance pieces by Gina Young and Kelly Addison, and the Lake Ivan Performance Group.
Lake Ivan, featuring David Finkelstein (pictured), has presented performance art pieces throughout New York City since 1982. Yolanda has won a pile of awards as a singer and transgendered performance artist. Young’s music has been featured on the TV show "Dawson’s Creek" and in her recent off-off-Broadway creations. Party with the artists after the show.
BRIC Studio is located on the second floor of 57 Rockwell Place, at Fulton Street in Fort Greene. Gender bending begins at 8 pm on Friday, Oct. 31. Tickets are $10, $8 for students with valid ID, and are available through the BRIC Studio Web site at www.bricon
