The Former First Lady of Performance Art - Marcela Michelle-Mobama is a Minneapolis based performance artist, curator, director, writer, choreographer, and all around nasty lady. Her multidisciplinary work and thoughtful-thot aesthetic has afforded her the opportunity to work with The Minneapolis Burlesque Festival, Black Hearts Burlesque, Dykes Do Drag, Carnival Revolver, Lily Verlaine, and with organizations like Pangea World Theatre, The Cowles Center for Dance, The Mixed Blood Theatre, The Minnesota Museum of American Art, Hamline University, The University of Minnesota, and recently as a teaching artist for The Walker Art Center. Marcela is currently the resident FemmeCee of Daddy, the twin-cities premier queer dance party and variety show (Best LGBTQ event 2018, City Pages). Whether seductive, inspirational, or just plain weird, her unique combination of subversive eroticism and desire to examine neo-burlesque sentiments will leave you hot, wet, and thinking.
Brian Bose is an actor-singer-dancer, choreographer/director, and international teaching artist who is considered one of the “Faces to Watch in Arts” by the San Diego Union Tribune.

Brian is the founder of the SLAY WORKSHOP, a hip-hop fusion class where anyone can dance their way to empowerment at the Guthrie Theater.
