FGP POLITICAL PARTY - SPRING 2018

The first ever FGP Festival featured this experimental art party that celebrated, interrogated, and ultimately excoriated the highest office in the land. A talented group of unique, visionary candidates participated in a full-fledged presidential election, including campaign speeches and a moderated debate. The constituents (audience) voted, and a new 'president elect' was inaugurated. By the end of the night, the president was protested and impeached - and then we really partied.

Host | Nicole Spiezio

Candidates | Kev Berry, Graham Techler, Emma Tattenbaum-Fine, Ali Levin, Gabe Gonzalez Kate Villa, Matt Clevy, Jess Vandenbergh

Dance | Fernando Contreras, Annalisa Ledson
