Strait No Chaser! Music, Circus, Theater & Death Defying Escape
Strait No Chaser : The Great Strait Escape is a performance art installation in which Arianna (LadyBEAST) will be secured in a strait jacket and suspended by her feet from the basket of a hot air balloon. The piece is supported by a team from GatorDox camp. It is a radical expression of internal and external struggles gracefully suspended in a chaotic world.
Saturday, July 21st, Paradox Media & Camp GatorDox invite you to help support their 2018 performance installation, "Strait No Chaser: The Great Strait Escape" to be featured at this year's Burning Man.
A SPECTACULAR variety show awaits, with old-timey charmers Earles of Newtown opening with a full band performance, the **opening night** of LEVITY - a feature-length, circus-inspired, ensemble theater show by LadyBeast Productions, touring the West Coast, and a closing electro-swingin set by DJ Skyler Gilmore. Each piece of this artful puzzle would be a whole night's worth of show, let alone all of this together!
Earles of Newtown
Earles of Newtown is a powerhouse Americana band crafting their tight arrangements of infectious original music around early era Harlem, New Orleans and “Hot” Jazz, along with Texas and Western Swing, creating a sound all its own called simply: “Swingin’ Dixie.” The nine piece band has been shaking dance floors all over California, including recent gigs in San Francisco. The Earles are injecting energy into the swing scene in the Sacramento, Sonoma, and Petaluma areas, playing along with other excellent North Bay groups such as The Crux and Royal Jelly Jive. Earles of Newtown received the “Best Live Band of 2014 Award” from the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce in Northern California. Notable performances include opening for Dr. John and Allen Toussaint as well as March Fourth Marching Band. Recently mentioned in the Sacramento Bee, “Three to See,” as “one of the gems of the gold country music scene, jazz collective Earles of Newtown peddles perfectly junky juke joint jazz – the kind you’d find in hidden back alley clubs in New Orleans that still require a password and sling a mean mint julep.”
LadyBEAST is a circus artist based in New Orleans, LA. specializing in Houdini-esque illusions, aerial, bottle walking, fire performance, and stilt walking. She is the lead producer of productions including Vaude d'Gras, Levity, YardBaret and co-producer of the world famous, Edwardian Ball.
