Weird Love: A Night Of Womance (women+performance!)
Body Actualized Center (143 Troutman St., Brooklyn)
Please come see, support, and share energy with a remarkable array of female performance artists. Spirits and treats will be available for purchase, there will be soft cushions to sit on, a theater of plants and candles, and the craziest, sexiest, coolest bizniss around.
Doors will open at 9:30, and the show will begin at 10 o’clock sharp with one 10 minute intermission. Program to last roughly 2 hours, sweet talk and tea to follow show. All proceeds will go to finding a home for the Moon Church, a super womantic space dedicated to healing, consciousness raising, support, and LOVE. Come feel it, weirdos!
