The iconic East Village institution Performance Space New York invited me to create a fundraising event in collaboration with my monthly dance party, WET NOISETM. The 12-hour daytime disco DANCE-A-THON fundraiser welcomed sponsored dancers and the general public in a community driven phone-free sweat-a-thon in support of radical programming. I compiled a host committee including Jonah Bokaer, Candystore, Raúl de Nieves, Hayden Dunham, Jack Ferver, Vinson Fraley, Jim Hodges, James Kaliardos, Jesse Kovarsky, Marilyn Minter, Parker Posey, Saada, Silvia Prada, Rob Roth, JD Samson, Desi Santiago, Stella Schnabel and Kate Wallich. Hudson Valley restaurateur superstars Lil’ Deb’s Oasis and La Newyorkina fed and cooled the marathon dancers. Milagro tequila generously sponsored our bar.
The event raised $22K that directly funded the institution’s fall programming.
