Welcome to the underground, a sensual discotheque club.

Your ticket is an invitation you to indulge in tiny pleasures. Speakeasy Go-go thrusts you out of isolation into the ecstatic joys and gyrations of the dance floor.

Choinacky shakes it all: go-go-ing through dreamy sunsets, kinky parties, and curious duct tape outfits with their iconic interdisciplinary style. All are shameless provocations to celebrate our truest selves. Let’s get the party started.

Performances DJ-ed live by Saint Manifest.

At the show, attendees will also be able to view and purchase a companion artist zine detailing the pleasureful, artistic archive created in tandem with the performance.
