Performance artist Gunnar Montana brings his latest experimental work, KINK HAÜS, to La MaMa in association with Howl! Arts Inc. The production originated at the Philadelphia Fringe Arts Festival last year and received critical acclaim for its heady mix of music, dance, visual arts, lights, sound and maverick attitude. Mr. Montana is a Montana-born, Philadelphia-based choreographer and performance artist whose work has appeared in numerous festivals including Philadelphia FringeArts Festival and ThinkFest. He was recently a featured guest at the annual Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference, the largest gathering of transgender individuals in the northeast.
KINK HAÜS marks Mr. Montana’s New York City stage debut and depicts the raw, dark and sometimes outlandish sexual journey people travel in search of identity and freedom. Set in an underground nightclub, the young multi-faceted performance artist and cast examine the impulses that excite us when fantasy, fetish, and carnal desire are at play. Mr. Montana is joined on stage by Avi Bourochoff, CJ Coleman, Jessica Daley, Dylan Kepp, Frank Leone and Stephanie Lyneice.
