Our second show of the season is a gnarly blast of charged energies. We’re beyond excited to be hosting NYC’s industrial provocateur Dreamcrusher aka Luwayne Glass at the Bus Stop Theatre on Thursday, December 6th. As Dreamcrusher, Glass creates a fringe, stylized kind of noise music informed by their experience as a black, queer, gender non-binary person hailing from America’s Bible Belt. Never one to underestimate the intelligence of their audience, the Dreamcrusher project has been challenging audiences every step of the way; be it through a near constant stream of short-format DIY releases or with their pummelling, force-forward live appearances. Rounding out the evening into total oblivion are local rawpunks Grief and the elusive earslime purveyor known as Junk Entity.
The evening before the show, Wednesday December 5th, we’re hosting a casual evening of conversation between Glass and local writer/filmmaker Francesca Ekwuyasi at the Glitter Bean Cafe. Ekwuyasi, who hails originally from Lagos, Nigeria, explores themes of queerness, loneliness, family and faith in her beautifully expressive and tension-filled work. We’re excited to see what intersections and divergences occur during dialogue between these two creatives. Following the conversation, the floor will be opened to sharing thoughts, questions and responses.
