We are currently raising funds to support the 2013 Summer Fringe Festival tour of our newest show, Tap Me on the Shoulder.
Tap Me on the Shoulder: A “fierce and heartfelt” one-woman show about rapping, words, empowerment, and challenging the status quo. Structured as a ten-step lesson plan for how to become a rapper, this rap and movement-infused story explores one nerdy white girl’s coming out/of age journey from New Hampshire hilltops to Brooklyn fifth-floor walk-up vistas. Written and performed by Erika Kate MacDonald, developed with the support of grant funds from the Northampton Arts Council (Northampton, MA), and with production support from Dixon Place (New York, NY).
Peg-ass-us: A melt-your-heart sweet, get-you-wet sexy, pee-your-pants funny burlesque love story. A charmingly mismatched, real-life couple use puppets, sing-a-longs, and comedy to guide audiences through the “ins-and-outs” of pegging, explore the connections between sexuality and identity, and deliver the sexual education everyone deserves. Peg-ass-us has appeared at the Montreal, San Francisco, and Boulder Fringe Festivals (Winner, "Best Comedy," S.F.), Dixon Place (NYC), the Brick Theater, Sex Weeks at Brown and Yale, and Bard College. ”¨”¨
FLUID: A splashy solo spectacle packed with tough lesbian raps, groping confessions and advanced bisexual linguistics. Erika Kate and her characters navigate the terms and conditions of expressing one's sexual identity. Written and performed by Erika Kate MacDonald, directed by Sophie Nimmannit, FLUID was named to Curve magazine’s top ten hottest lesbian plays, and has been presented at Dixon Place (NYC), as well as at the San Francisco, Minnesota, and Boulder Fringe Festivals, at Harvest: The Montreal LGBT International Theater Festival (Director’s Choice Award Winner), and at schools, conferences and independent theaters across the U.S.
