Performance at 3pm 

Art Hoe: A New Era is an alter ego performance exploring the conscious and the subconscious in a trippy mixture of music video iconography, body doubling, and drag. Sebastian Cummings is an auteur of live video performance and performer who made a splash in Philadelphia in 2016 before upending the San Francisco runway drag circuit at OASIS with their unorthodox performances for 5 years. She sends a monthly motivational newsletter to an ever growing list of recipients across the globe signed from God. Bridging the gap between authenticity and self acceptance, Sebastian becomes Heaven On Earth — a sultry and unapologetic presence come to life.

Heaven on Earth (S. Cummings) is an undeniable creative force. After studying Theatre in University and working as an actor in Philadelphia, the performer began producing original work under the mononym “Sebastian,” with much success, being listed in Billy Penn’s “Who’s Next: Arts” list, a write up in Huffington Post, and being featured in every. single. Philadelphia. paper. Heaven then moved to Mexico City for two years, expanded by the culture and international art scene. Then, off to Berlin, experiencing the nightlife firsthand, adding more to the creative palette. And finally, to San Francisco, where their talents got them the first ever Artist Residency at Oasis Arts, the new nonprofit of the famous night club Oasis, in downtown San Francisco. It was there, Art Hoe was conceived. Audiences were left in awe at such unadulterated talent. And now, to Philadelphia.
