Under the Covers
Have you ever asked a total stranger “What does pleasure look like to you?” That’s exactly what audience members at Under the Covers will be encouraged to do: mingle, meet a stranger, take a polaroid, and share an intimate conversation in hopes of forming new connections.
Hosted by Sọma Okoye and Bianca Rogoff [both She/Her/Hers], Co-Founders of Under the CoversProject.
Under the Covers Project is a collective of artists unveiling and subverting the stigma that surrounds sex, sexuality, and pleasure through varying creative mediums. It’s a collaboration that reflects a diverse range of backgrounds and perspectives through the exploration of identity.

Dear Baby Maybe: Letters To My Younger Self
What would you say to your younger self if you had the chance? Would you tell them about the struggles and monumental events that lie ahead, or just provide them with wisdom in hopes that it will guide them in the right direction? Do you think they’d like who you are today? Audience members will be given the opportunity to lay everything out on the table, and explore the possibilities of what they would say to themselves if given that chance.
Hosted by Maybe Burke [They/Them/Theirs]
Maybe Burke is a New York based performer, writer, director, choreographer, educator, and trans advocate interested in telling the stories that haven't been told. They are excited by new material that can honestly and realistically portray marginalized groups of people.

Drink & Draw
How do YOU see yourself in others? Audience members will be given the opportunity, with a drink in hand, to dig deep into their creative pockets, and use visual art to explore the faces, figures, and feelings of how they see themselves in others.
Hosted by Basit [They/Them/Theirs]
Basit (Dionne Slay) is an elusive chanteuse, drag artist, and activist based in Brooklyn. Basit is a multifaceted performer, and was most recently seen on tour in the European company of Hair. Basit’s drag persona, Dionne Slay, has made it her mission to honor and celebrate the black women who have deeply inspired her, and she performs live music and dance in various venues throughout NYC. Dionne was featured in the annual drag festival Bushwig in Brooklyn last year, and in July, she performed her solo show debut at Dixon Place. “Tens Across the Board” was Dionne’s love letter and tribute show to Tina Turner, Etta James, and Nina Simone.
