ECSTASY FOR EVERYONE: A Theatrical Celebration of the Poetry and Art of James Broughton
In celebration of James Broughton’s centennial year, performance artist Jason Jenn brings Broughton’s mercurial wit, wonder, whimsy, and words to life on stage.
Broughton was an award-winning poet and poetic filmmaker, and a notable figure in the San Francisco Renaissance, Radical Faeries, CMG, and Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence communities. Broughton’s work speaks to us with a beguiling trickster charm, devoutly spiritual and sexually liberated, with themes exploring gender, humor, and imagination. The recent documentary Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton (screening at the Roxie Theater and the Pacific Film Archive Theater) illuminates his extraordinary life. Jenn's theatrical celebration commemorates Broughton's life and work.
