Controlled Burn – Queer Performance for a World on Fire

February 13 @ 7:30 pm February 15 @ 9:30 pm

Named for the practice of burning a prairie to promote new growth, Controlled Burn is a space for queer rage, revolution, and reclamation, aimed at regeneration. An intersectional space for queer performers, especially artists of color and with disabilities, Controlled Burn is a cabaret festival curated by the fiercely talented Taja Will, Ondine and Marcela Michelle. This special three-night event will feature a different line-up each evening.
