PS 122 – Avant-Garde-Arama / Oct 2010

October 1st and 2nd were the days PS 122 hosted Avant-Garde-Arama.

Here is a collection of ‘highlights’ from the two evenings of fun and talent.

Hosted by Kenny Mellman and Bridgett Everett on Fri and Sat. nights.


To introduce the show we had an ‘back to school’ musical number with a wonderful cast!

The featured artist to present on Friday night was Julie Atlas Muz.

“The Cleaning Lady Has Something to Say (Part 1)”.

After cleaning 15 years worth of decadent living, eyelashes, empty bottles of champagne, full ashtrays, used condoms, spilt nail polish bottles and broken chandeliers, one of Ms. Muz’s alter egos has had enough of living in the background. The Cleaning Lady is a brutal, tough, formal and clean perspective. Nothing messy. Full-frontal dance. Nothing dirty. Artists performing include: Lauri Hogan, Darlinda Just Darlinda, Dirty Martini, Ede Thurell, Bunny Love, Kenball Zwerin, Antonio Ramos, Saori Tsukada and Jeremy X. Halpern.


Erin Markey was wild in her piece.


Jenn Harris has a song to sing about her special friend ‘Surprise’.

She insisted on collecting donations for his little ‘labia’ less doll.
