Dr. Lucky's Surrealist Burlesque at Coney Island USA Set for 8/8
by BWW News Desk - Jul 21, 2014

Surrealist Burlesque returns to the Coney Island USA Sideshow by the Seashore stage with its 6th incarnation of what has been hailed by the press as "Striptease meets Socrates" (Brooklyn Paper). This years' Surrealist Burlesque presents Flaming Creatures, a tribute to Jack Smith's ground-breaking work that pioneered experimental film-making and representations of gender fluidity in the early 1960s. Considered by many to be a founding father of performance art and an innovator of underground film, Jack Smith's film was officially deemed "obscene" by a New York Criminal Court. Flaming Creatures at Coney Island USA features stars of the art world and burlesque stage who have created acts in the spirit of Smith's queer, Utopic landscape. Starring Carmelita Tropicana, Dirty Martini, Dr. Lucky, Jennifer Miller, Jason Mejias, Julie Atlas Muz, and Poison Eve. With production numbers featuring the Dali Dancers. Video installation by Joe E. Jeffreys and Ves Pitts. Living Surrealist Object Sculptures by Jenny Pierce, featuring Tiny D, Zoe Ziegfeld, Lillian Bustle, Mia Julep, and Clara Coquette. Music by Velvet Crayon and DJ MomoTaro. (more...)
