Brain Melt Consortium is proud to present the world premiere of DAUGHTERS OF LOT as part of Frigid New York 2012. A modern-day burlesque act with a twist, the evening's entertainment begins as a sexy and silly retelling of an ancient story, until the performers do a trick that requires more than flexibility. Atlanta, the headliner, and her Sodomette sidekicks summon the ancient characters of their tale into reality, leading a couple of B.C. teenagers on a tour through a dazzling modern world that is part Brecht, part circus, and two parts Suicide Girls. Written by Alexis Roblan and directed by Rachel Kerry, DAUGHTERS OF LOT is a titillating, perplexing, and vexing exploration of the ways women are taught to be "women." Brain Melt Consortium is an NYC-based multi-dimensional media arts group interested in creating projects that engage audiences in new and evocative ways. Through a variety of platforms – including theatre, web series, experimental music, ETC – BMC hopes to create art that expresses a sincere joy in its creation, while exploring new ways to stimulate (and overstimulate) the senses.
