112 years ago the mad, megalomaniac genius Salvador Dali burst forth from his mother’s viscera to become the one and only True Surrealist to ever live and the Saviour of painting. Clara Coquette and Gemini Blitz present Dali’s visceral dream images on a gleaming, argent platter for you to devour. Join us on a succulent, scintillating journey where we invert the trauma of birth and open the secret drawers of the body.
“Take me, I am the drug. Take me, I am hallucinogenic.” Deciphering and devouring the bizarre, twisted images of Dali’s work is addictive. The more you imbibe the more you desire and the desire becomes a need to bring his nightmare images and mystical scenes to life.
The Persistence of Nudity: A Burlesque Tribute to Dali takes place Friday, July 15th, 10pm at Sideshows by the Seashore, Coney Island USA, as part of the Burlesque at the Beach Series. Producers Clara Coquette and Gemini Blitz perform alongside such magnificent talents as Bambi the Mermaid, Fem Appeal, Hazel Honeysuckle, Corvette LeFace, Matt Knife, Betsy Propane, and Fancy Feast. Become a surveyor of the world of dreams, madness, and absolute genius. For Dali, by Dali, inspired by Dali.
