A sold out show that opened Fest Salt Lake Stages 2020, the second year of the Kinky Beast Cabaret was even more mind-blowing than the first. Let me count the ways. There was a hitting scene that was more caring than a cuddle puddle. A sub-dom act that was a model of self-affirmation. A tender needle scene that felt like a slow-motion love affair. I could go on and on listing expressions of sex-positivity and acceptance that were onstage.
One newcomer– a patron at SB Dance performers who knew nothing about kink– couldn’t stop talking about the contrast with her preconceptions. “I thought Kink was about being bad” she said. “But I found out it’s about being good. Nasty good!”
It’s on to the New Creation for us now. Hopefully a blog during the process.
PS– A quick update on the last post about SB Dance being denied funding from the Salt Lake City Arts Council. The whole thing stunk enough that we made an open records request. Lo and behold, the records were filled with disturbing and unprofessional behavior on the part of the Arts Council review committee. SB Dance wrote a report about its findings, and it’s slowly making the rounds.
