"I urge you to go see Squirts for yourself...because the future is being created on stage before our eyes. And I am hopeful."

A Helix Queer Performance Network Event
Curated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Linda LaBeija and Shannon Matesky
The Helix Queer Performance Network gathers some of the most exciting voices from New York City’s queer performance world, across the generations. Over three nights, three curators sculpt the fabric of queer community to pose questions, honor legacies and ignite the present. Join multiple generations of queer performers as we celebrate the legacy of downtown theatrics and the precocious audacity of the millennial mind.
"Ferocious showcase of some of the best Queer acts in the land...promises a new surprise every night!"
~ TIME OUT NEW YORK, 2016
