CONFESSIONS OF A CUBAN SEX ADDICT Set for DMAC, 2/21
On February 21, 2014 Confessions of a Cuban Sex Addict by Michelangelo Alasa' returns to Duo Multicultural Arts Center (DMAC) at 62 East 4th Street.
Confessions of a Cuban Sex Addict, written and designed by Michelangelo Alasa' is a walk through, theatrical installation filled with video, found objects and words. Now in its second year, Alasa' shares his personal journey of triumphing through sexual abuse in Confessions, a snapshot of his queer coming-of-age experience during the 1960s. Using multiple spaces and multiple projection screens, Alasa' leads the audience through the House of Terror filled with iconic sexual images and memorabilia of Alasa's youth ultimately leading into a recreation of his childhood "safe place". Provocative, evocative and cathartic in nature, this performance reminds us of our deepest secrets, darkest longings, and biggest triumphs.
Performances are free to the public but reservations are highly recommended.
