Raunchy performance artist, sensitive singer-songwriter, rock-n-roll nincompoop: Dan Fishback is the quintessential Renaissance Queer, with more disguises than Madonna and more projects than Harlem. NO DIRECTION HOMO celebrates the chaotic life of this up-and-coming anti-diva, in all his exhausted, over-extended glory. Join PS122 for this three-night long extravanganza of downtown performance!

Night One, JAMZ FROM THE JESTER’S KITCHEN, showcases Fishback’s childlike, anti-folk power-pop band, Cheese On Bread, along with dance-rock BFFs The Bloodsugars , and downtown puberty-freaks The O’Debra Twins.

Night Two, STORIES FROM THE PRINCE’S TOILET, presents a performance art mix-tape, with highlights from Fishback’s brief but prolific career as a playwright and monologist. Underscored by the music of Dibson Hoffweiler and Preston Spurlock, Fishback weaves together a dozen stories of desire, distress, and bodily functions to create a portrait of queer confusion at the dawn of the apocalypse.

Night Three, SONGS FROM THE QUEEN’S TERRACE, closes the festival with Fishback at his most intense, as a focused, feisty queer troubadour, armed with an acoustic guitar and a collection of songs from both his debut album, Sweet Chastity, and his upcoming release, Mammal. The evening begins with surrealist balladeers The Tri-Lambs, and a special, miraculous appearance by legendary feminist performance artist and playwright Deb Margolin.

Taylor Mac’s “Young Ladies Of”

Taylor Mac's Young Ladies Of

Schoolhouse Roxx presents Taylor Mac’s Young Ladies Of…

In Vietnam 1968, Texan born 2nd Lt. Robert Mac placed an ad asking “young ladies” to write him. Hundreds replied. Almost thirty years after Robert’s death, his son Taylor Mac manhandles these found texts into a show about war, romance, and fathers. Partially sung, the 80-minute solo performance contains original songs and text, along with the letters. By juxtaposing the images and circumstances of his father in Vietnam, with Taylor’s own screwball gender-bending visuals and New York lifestyle, the work bridges the gap between perceptions of masculinity and femininity, fathers and sons, and red and blue states.

Written and Performed by Taylor Mac
Directed by Tracy Trevett
