Heels On Wheels Hit the Road

Heels On Wheels Hit the Road

Heels on Wheels is a New York based group of queer femme-inine spectrum artist-activists, and organizers.They are known for their monthly Open Toe Peep Show, providing a space for queer artists of all genera to perform in front of a receptive and regularly packed house.

This month the performers hit the road show in "The 2014 Glitter Roadshow", where they will bring their works to Brattleboro, Amherst, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Pittsburgh, NYC, Providence & Brooklyn. Each event will consists of six performers, which include local artists in every city, and ending with a dance party.

Featured traveling Heel's performers are Shomi Noise who plays guitar and reads from her zine series “Building Up Emotional Muscles,” the story of her journey as a Bolivian immigrant. Damien Luxe’s multimedia “Femme Footprints In The Sand” plays with mermaids and powdered milk to explore thriving past poverty and trauma. Heather Ács’ “Welcome to the Waldorf Hysteria” uses multi-media high-femme drag histrionics to ask, what do we gain when we lose control? Angel Nafis’ poetry celebrates the everything and everywhere of her world, of love and divinity, of her black girl brilliance in its vastness and depth. Alvis Parsley's heartfelt confession draws on their experiences as a genderqueer Asian while questioning the roles of institutions, authority, and the ecosystem of the arts. Sabina Ibarrola melts down and melts hearts in a pop culture performative exploration of breaking up and breaking through with the help of karaoke and Carrie Bradshaw.
