News: "A Jury of Our Queers" Plays The Exponential Festival Jan. 13-15

From Section175 Art Collective and Unattended Baggage comes A Jury of Our Queers, a mix of drag show, courtroom drama, and theater conceived and directed by Dmitri Barcomi. Blending historic texts and original writing in an act of radical queer re-envisioning, A Jury of Our Queers will be produced by The Exponential Festival for four performances from January 13-15 at Brooklyn's Target Margin Theater.
A Jury of Our Queers sees bombshell broad Mae West and rising Broadway starlet Helen Menken arrested in 1926 for artistic obscenity and summoned to a metatheatrical courtroom. Their charges: serving face, serving legacy, and serving queer community. Co-created by Dmitri Barcomi, AJ Dresdale, Jorge Felipe Guevara, DeVante Lewis, Seth Majnoon, Eri Nox, Nancy Nogood, and Avery Rose Pedell, it stars Nogood as West, Guevara as Menken, Lewis as Da Muvah, and Dresdale as The Men.

Playwright and director Barcomi (he/him) is a theater creator, director, and designer from New York City whoses work has been seen throughout New York at Ars Nova, HERE Arts, La MaMa, Cloud City, BRIC, and other hubs of experimental new work, as well as internationally at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Teatr Słowackiego in Kraków. He is also the founder of §175 (Section175), an award-winning international transdisciplinary artist collective dedicated to creating works of unusual content and design that pair theater with technology, sound, and visual media and draw inspiration from unlikely source materials and shared queer history.

Tickets for A Jury of Our Queers are $15-35 and can be purchased online at
