Each year, the THIS IS WHAT I WANT performance festival asks its artists and audiences to explore their desires. This year, Tessa Wills and crystal am nelson present a triple bill of artists revealing hidden desires, unheard voices and invisible body parts.
Come to the festival and enter an unapologetically erotically embodied space. Cristina Victor’s “Ass Capital: Reflections of a Contemporary Culo” will be an auto-ethnographic, TED talk style lecture lead by Victor’s ASS. Pale Breast’s “Love Puppet,” invites audience members to probe their relationship to power and control through direct manipulation of the performer’s body. In Gigi Otálvaro-Hormillosa’s new work “Psychic Gold,” she stages images of desire and converses with historical and contemporary figures like Freud, Sor Juana, and men of different backgrounds to reflect on female “masculinities.”
Manipulate Pale Breast. Shake your ass with Cristina. Watch Gigi work her psychic gold.
Stoke the fire of your desire.

A Lesbian’s Guide To Self Care, is a comedic, feminist, crystal laden, bath house soaked, astrologically drunken hero-journey. In Kat Marie Yoas’ latest one woman show, she finds the road to wellness is under construction and bumpy at best. She is a midwestern working class lady who believes she is clueless and seeks to find herself in the uncharted landscape of San Francisco woo — from psychic dating services to healing grief with a massage, she ventures deep to find her place and connection in a world which is increasingly plugged in and disconnected.
