Can the perfect UTOPIA exist?

UTOPIAN (t&c’s apply) is a surrealistic circuspop-culture experience about raves, hierarchy, and power. Joined by her two partners, Symoné takes the audience on an adventure filled with waacking, voguing, high heel rollerskating, and aerial in her surrealistic world asking the audience, ‘why do people abuse power roles?’. This show may or may not contain autobiographical references about cults.
