Curated by Eda Kumquat
Eda Kumquat is simultaneously a sweetheart and sour puss. She’s so sugary sweet that she’ll give you a cavity today and Diabetes tomorrow. She’s the kind of sour that makes your eyes bulge in excitement, lips pucker in adulation, and tongue bleed from gross overindulgence. She’s a member of the Phlegm Fatales drag collective, winner of TaDa! Events “La Cage Drag Contest,” and your reigning Queen of the Night. “Live Magazine! Volume #7 Issue #16” promises to be a delectable evening of entertainment as Eda will whet your whistle in ways that Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking never could.
The lovely, pastel, blonde girl that everyone needs in their life. If you pay close attention, you’ll notice tiny cherubs circling her naturally blonde (definitely not a wig) hair, playing their harps along to the tunes she hums. She kisses you on the cheek after you fall asleep, takes five dollars, and gets out. Her soft personality mixed with her angelic looks will have you praying that you’ll catch a glimpse of this one-of-a-kind angel.
Dan is a Performance Artist, Music Producer, DJ and Promoter (Axel Sundelin; Nancy Music)
Dan’s practice is heavily influenced by the relationship between the audience and the performer within the performance environment; especially revolving around intimacy created between audience and performer and experimenting with how far this intimacy can be pushed. Previous works have focused upon an aspect of the body and/or self which can be considered a commodity, how this is framed by society, and the consequences to which this can lead. The concepts Dan deals with, and the methods they employ, express the absurdity in society and question whether or not this is a workable model of existence.
