Theater Ninjas presents a clip from Tingle-Tangle:
a queer performance of songs and stories
in which the lines of gender and sexuality
bend and redefine themselves
Frightened voices around the world are adapting to recent social changes through an influx of hate speech, violence and oppressive laws aimed at LGBTQIA individuals. Tingle-Tangle is a transgressive cabaret that looks at a world filled with fear, oppression and hate speech but responds with love, compassion, humor and the desire to understand...not to mention some out-and-out DESIRE.
There are no easy answers, and laughter and tears make great dancing partners. Tingle-Tangle is a seductive tango between pain and pleasure.
Performed and monologue written by Ray Caspio
Composed and accompanied by Sean Ellis
"What Makes a Man" by Charles Aznavour
