A teen-angst masturbatory love poem, a clowning drag king punk show, ‘tofuhotdog and wonderbun’ critiques the failures in masculinity through actions of shallow rage, notions of an iconic American ‘Man’ through food processed poetry, and the limitations of a body bound and desireful. In this phallic solo, the ‘notdog’ is shaken, eaten, stomped on, sung about -- a choreography to digest and transform the excess. Perhaps never achieving this, 'tofuhotdog' is a beautifully humiliating mess.

'tofuhotdog' has been shown in excerpts through AUNTS, Rosekill, Raw Dance Share, and has been performed in its entirety through SoLow Festival in Philadelphia in June 2014, and at Old Furnace Artist Residency in August 2014 where it received residency support.
