Season 3 is here!
We're stirring up a New Years Eve showing at The Battery in San Francisco to ring in '18 the RIGHT way..
Modern dance meets spontaneous improvised lap dance performances. Hilarity ensues.
Emma took home the Bronze as "Reckless Ruthie" from Season 1's competition and once again in Season 2 as "Magic Mike/Magic Dyke."
"ARE YOU THERE CRAIGSLIST? IT'S ME, ______."
Inspired by a collection of Craigslist email exchanges that document a hustle for work to survive as an artist. Emma is one of four artist commissioned to premier new works that show very different takes on this very personal, diverting text.
Performances are May 27th and 28th!
