Bet Ya UnGodly Things is a multigenre dance fable set in the New Jersey countryside where Neve grew up Black, Disabled, Queer, and wanting to be an acting ballerina. Clinton is the town from which Assata Shakur escaped prison, and she, like other black liberation activists, called this place Up South. On July 3, 1867, a South Carolina town flooded for a month, only stopping when the townspeople released a mysterious mermaid from a local doctor’s lab.
What if shifts in the atmosphere were affected by the repression of crucial parts of ourselves? Experimenting with ballet, character studies, folk magic, and (ir)reverent a capella, Neve reimagines their hometown experience, and stages a hope that integrating our demons and healing ourselves could also heal our environment.
Accessibility Info: The Calamus Auditorium at Gay City is ADA accessible, has two single-stall all-gender restrooms, and is a fragrance-free space. For more information about accessibility at Gay City, please visit gaycity.org/access
It is Gay City’s policy that smoking and use of fragrances are prohibited on Gay City Health Project premises, including all Gay City Health Project sponsored events and activities. The health of some of our staff, volunteers, and clients may be harmed by exposure to cologne, perfume, or other fragrances–which may cause difficulty breathing, migraine headaches, flu-like symptoms and more. These symptoms are not always readily apparent and sometimes show up hours later or persist for days after an exposure.
Coming to Gay City having used fragranced products on your body or your clothing means that those who are sensitive are faced with the choice to stay and get sick or leave and be unable to access important services or do their job. We ask your help in making Gay City accessible to all by coming to Gay City fragrance free.
*Sponsor Tickets: Gay City relies on the generosity of our patrons and supporters to help bring about programs like Gay City Arts. Spending a little more on your ticket will help keep our program running and our ticket prices low.
**Radical Hospitality Tickets are provided as a homage to a concept first pioneered by Mixed Blood Theatre in Minneapolis, meant to “erase economic barriers in pursuit of building a truly inclusive” audience.
