Upcoming Performances

An Evening of Erotic Expression

Sex, love, relationship…
Anger, passion, longing…
Unspoken desires, unrealized fantasies,
unheard of sensual adventures…

Essensuality invites out the essence of sensuality.  The raw, vulnerable, uncensored, tender – usually private – moments step out into the spotlight to be shared. In poetry, spoken word, dance. Comedy, storytelling, music. Or some genre of your own imagination.

The evening will include: Featured acts, open mic performances, and spontaneous combustion…not necessarily in that order. Bring yourself, your friends, your lovers. Your desire, your embarrassment, your uncertainty. It’s all welcome here! After all, that’s what it is to be a sensual being. And that’s what we’re celebrating…the sensuality that lives — whether hidden or on the sleeve — of every single one of us.

Featured Guests:

The Black and the Jew

Meet the fabulously funny and convention-breaking couple, Epstein and Hassan (The Black and The Jew), as they reveal their personal insights into relationships, sex, race, politics and the enlightening system known as of “BlackJewLove Technology.”

“Hysterically funny, wowed by deft switch from Hustler raunch to Zen sensitivity.”
The Village Voice

“A funny, sexy show to heal the races and sexes.”
Time Out New York
