Like a poison cookie—tempting and treacherous, pleasing and perilous—Get Pegged Cabaret lures you inside a reimagined La Peg, then jumps you with unrestrained intimacy and performance. Each night features uncensored and stimulating entertainment from the sexy, satirical, daring, delightful, queer, and most dangerous performers from Philadelphia, New York, and beyond.

Raja Feather Kelly

raja feather kellyA movement-based drag performance essay inspired by Andy Warhol’s alter ego “Drella” — a contraction of Dracula and Cinderella. Beyond the focus on Warhol’s legacy, DRELLA addresses Kelly’s concerns with identity, sexuality and self-worth. In this Vogue-Ballet, Kelly creates a surreal world; a gender-bending, race-shifting, multi-medium “Artsploitation” in response to today’s consumer culture, and celebrity worship. Asurvey of LOVE in popular music and an experience of the duality of what pop fans want from us: their product- to escape and to learn how to live/love. We wanted to suggest the proverb “you make the bed you lie in” as an example of the relationship we have with popular culture. We watch it, buy it, eat it, live, it. And what about Love? Do we know what love is? We’re directed to watch it, buy it, be it, eat it?

Performer Aaron Moses Robin graduated from FSU in late 2013. His first job with the feath3r theory was cleaning the floor for their performance of Drella 2014. He was reading a book about Edie Sedgwick by Jean Stein and Raja and he got to talking. Aaron was in the next work. Aaron also runs a T-shirt line called “So Naught Tees”.
