Flesh Capades is an odd entry into the well-trodden paths in and around folds of soft tissue. The Fine Arts by Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby begins the evening in search of a good idea, the basis of all art. Todd Herman’s Forbidden Acts visually unleashes the sexually charged poems written and performed by black disabled activist Leroy Moore through a thoughtful and provocative lens. “Fat floats” is the theme of Julie Wyman’s Buoyant, as the filmmaker weaves together the stories of a self-described group of fat synchronized swimmers, a Greek mathematician obsessed with floatation, and the unveiling of a device that allows one to swim without water. Torsten Zenas Burns and Darrin Martins’ The Abominable Freedom ends the evening with a hallucinatory lesson in social experiments that embrace witchcraft, polyamory, spectrophilia, and rebirthing techniques. Parental guidance is strongly suggested.
