Joanna Gallery presents "Mardi Gras @ Numbers starring Christeene"
"Mardi Grass @ Numbers starring Christeene" is a one-night art show during which Houston photographer OTIS IKE will reenact a New Orleans' Mardi Gras with a giant spectacle of radical musicians and performers.
Numbers will be filled with Mardi Gras goers interacting with legions of bead throwing drag queens and improvisational performers who will be playing different roles, like drunken exhibitionists encouraging sexual debauchery to Bible thumpers, frat girls and perverted photographers. Houston gender bender performer Koomah will be putting on a theatrical performance as a "Human King Cake."
The backbone of the show will be the Houston world premiere of Christeene with the New Orleans Hustlers Brass Band. Performances will feature local collective Continuum, drag queens, bears, kinksters and a variety of groups from nudists to local fraternities.
