"I urge you to go see Squirts for yourself...because the future is being created on stage before our eyes. And I am hopeful." John-Stuart Fauquet, Huffington Post

For two weeks, annually, curator and host Dan Fishback rallies the brashest new voices of the queer stage for a peek into the future of underground, revolutionary queer art-making. Ranging from drag and cabaret to spoken word and theater, each of these young artists take cues from their predecessors while reinventing their forms through the singular weirdness of their own individual visions.

Join multiple generations of queer performers as we celebrate the legacy of downtown theatrics and the precocious audacity of the millennial mind.
