Half performance, half party, it’s a multi-sensory experience designed to bring the Los Angeles art community together to celebrate and #resist.
Sunday’s event is a quieter affair featuring a tea house and meditation sound bath.
Proceeds support both Fugitive Kind’s work and the work of its community partner, Brave Trails which provides LGBTQ+ youth and their allies with innovative summer camp programs that foster meaningful relationships and develop 21st century skills to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Fugitive Kind is devoted to true ensemble work and to making theater in Los Angeles a rich and deeply tangible experience. Made up of artists of all stripes (including singers, dancers and choreographers, drag, burlesque, and pole art performers, a sound artist, and an opera singer) who have worked together for many years, each production is crafted with connectivity and dedication to form. Fugitive Kind is an eclectic and passionate collective inspired by possibility, by what can only exist in live art, and by their community.
One show per week is reserved for “pay what you think it’s worth after the show”.
