Hello Friends & Supporters,
Welcome to the *first ever* edition of MC FANMAIL
I'm starting this monthly email communique as a way of keeping ~fans~ in the loop.
You are fans in the sense that you wave me on when I might otherwise feel stuck, and you help me keep cool in these hot summer months.
You inspire me to make art, which can be an exciting, terrifying, surprisingly mundane, and oftentimes life-changing process.
Thank you for your support and encouragement. I couldn't do it without you.
"Thumbs up" STACEY performs at HELLTRAP NIGHTMARE (Chicago comedy show) in April.
1. I recorded my first solo album!
It's a concept cassette called "Stacey's Spacey" and I'm super proud of it. I made all of the sounds/music/written material myself and it is a wild ride. It will be coming out later this month on a *top secret* label and I will be sure to include the link to the digital recording and cassette purchasing options in the July edition of *MC FANMAIL*
2. Peg and Deb: Two Divorced Moms…The Talk Show! Goes live July 7th
Saturday July 7th, 12pm @ SPACES gallery-- Join me and my collaborator Ben Oblivion for the live filming of our off-beat, absurdist "talk show"... See a pilot version here. The show has only a 40 person capacity, and it's sure to be a really funny, heartwarming, and weird hour of live "television." You can purchase tickets here. There will be mimosas.
Peg and Deb visit the Big Apple (from Episode 1)
3) Residency at Maelstrom Collaborative Arts
Maelstrom Collaborative Arts has been generous enough to host me for 2 weeks in June at their beautiful (air conditioned!!) space in Gordon Square. I will be spending that time developing new material for an upcoming Fall East Coast tour, rehearsing for 2 Divorced Moms, and creating some structure for dance classes I'd like to try out (see below). I'm incredibly grateful for this opportunity to flail around and dance like no one is watching (because I'll be all alone, probably talking to myself a lot). I honestly can't wait!
4) I'm hosting some FEEL GOOD movement classes
Lately, I've been missing having a physical practice. When I say physical practice, I mean all of the things I've learned I can do to feel my body engaged, stretching, changing, shaping, feeling, thinking, and being present. I'll be using some time during my 2 week residency at Maelstrom Collaborative Arts to workshop and host classes/hold space for ALL body types and levels of experience to explore. Please let me know if you'd like to join in.
Classes will be held at the following days and times:
Thursday June 21st at 7pm
Monday June 25th at 7pm
@ Maelstrom Collaborative Arts, 5301 Detroit Ave, Cleveland Ohio.
That's it for now!
Thanks so much for reading.
Have a great June,
