THIS IS A PARTY. THIS IS NOT A PLAY. IT’S ALSO NOT A PLAY PARTY.
Co-creative directed by Diana Oh and Kevin Hourigan
The Infinite Love Party is where love is forged. A celebration of soul awakening. It's where play breeds change. It's where queer magic can do its healing. For All People. A celebration of the outskirts. A celebration of Queerness and our Allies. A celebration of POC and our Allies. A space for bare humanity to exist- where we will leave kinder and more open, more connected to our purpose, our bodies, and our hearts. A celebration of liberated selves. A celebration of liberated love. AN INFINITE LOVE PARTY!
Dance Party featuring DJ Nessuno!
Barefoot Finger Painting!
Sleepover! Hell yeah!
BYOB (bring your own blanket)
Dress Code: as loud and proud or as low and slow as you want to go
Party guests are invited to bring items they no longer need to donate to The Swamp, and a dish for our potluck.
Party guests can sign up for a limited number of slots to perform at the party during our Liberated Performance sharing portion of the night! A sign-up sheet will be available at the party. Liberated Performances (6 minutes or less) can include anything from reading a letter you wrote to your mother, to juggling, to singing a song into someone’s mouth (literally), to leading us through a meditation: you get the gist, get creative, get nasty. PLEASE RESPECT THE TIME LIMIT!

CODE OF COMMUNITY:
The Infinite Love Party is a magical space where the sacred and profane smash together in a powerful and ephemeral hug to emanate joy, love, and presence. I will lead with my heart and clean up after myself knowing that we are in this together, and it is a group of real humans with real names throwing this party. I, as a party guest, whether a slumberer or non-slumberer, will honor the space and take care of the people and wonderfulness inside of it. I will practice consent and ask before touching people or things. And I promise to not take anything from the space unless it's from the Thing Swamp (!!!). And now, I take a deep breath and welcome the light to flood on in.
