"Plasma - Mx. Oops" at Dixon Place
Plasma is a multimedia dance performance ritual honoring the Divine Femme. Plasma is nectar. Rap, vogue, and general relativity collide in a lecture presentation turned hybrid nightclub spectacle. Plasma is a meditational booty bass invocation. Mx. Oops, master of ceremonies, weaves wildly appropriative ritual ceremony with nightclub ecstatics. Plasma is ecstatics over aesthetics. Who would have thought that breakdance is a place to look for modern mystics? Come join us for a ritual investigation of the cosmic booty pop. Come get drenched in your own indeterminacy.
