Edo Extravaganza Performers:


After relocating from the Orlando LGBTQ Club circuit to Brooklyn, C'etait BonTemps is now bringing their good times to a whole new crowd! Known for their gender blending antics on and off stage, BonTemps goes between masculine and feminine with ease. Keep your eyes open and your excitement pulsing, you are sure to leave saying "C'etait BonTemps"!



Kizuna Dance is a NYC-based contemporary dance company founded by Artistic Director Cameron McKinney in 2013 in Vermont.  The mission of the company is to depict aspects of Japanese history and culture through the use of a unique blend of hip-hop, house, and contemporary movements, connecting mysterious Japanese culture with movement that is more recognizable and piques audiences’ interest in the culture.


Lewd!Panic Productions is run by Lewd Alfred Douglas, Johnny Panic, and a diverse collection of artists and performers from NYC, representing all the queerness and surrealness that the stage can offer. We aim to represent a vivid rainbow of genders and physicalities while twisting universal theatrical themes.
