Feathers, Needles & a Dark Sort of Art


A little while ago, I went to The Church with Alex and Allison for some "nightly service". I know it's not wise to go out on a Sunday night but then I miss things like this. The special guest was DATURA. Although, I can't seem to find a website for them, I know they come from California and their act is a mix of burlesque and freak.

The first two performers gave us an interesting striptease, complete with clothing that was attached to their skin with long needles. And, yes, those are roses the performers are sticking in their cheeks.

Then the guy with the birdcage on his head stepped forward and the mood changed. The act came together as a performing art piece, rooted in human darkness.

And up he went, suspended by his flesh.

Alex and I loved every minute of the show. Allison, however, is afraid of needles so she spent half the show with her eyes closed. We've decided to go "pray" more often.
