Gunnar MontanaArtistic Director
Gunnar Montana is a Philadelphia-based choreographer and performance artist whose work has appeared in festivals across the region, including the Philadelphia FringeArts Festival and ThinkFest, as well as in several venues across the City. Infusing movement and visual arts, Gunnar’s work refuses to be defined. His artistry as a whole is an array of visual art installations, prop-based choreography, set design, costume design, transformation of atmosphere, and innovative movement, concepts, and ideas. Gunnar attended The University of the Arts, graduating in 2011 with a BFA in Modern Dance Performance and a profound interest in choreography and creative movement.
Dylan Kepp started his drag career in New York City while attending Parsons, The New School of Design, where he received a BFA in Fashion Design. Since moving back to Philadelphia, Dylan (aka Iris Spectre) has worked with Mimi Imfurst’s Dollhouse Revue and countless venues across the region as a drag performer. Originally from the Delaware county area, his performances have spanned from Rehoboth’s Purple Parrot Bar to Colby College’s annual drag ball in Waterville, Maine to Gunnar Montana’s Resurrection Room, Purgatory and Exposed.

Founded in 1961 by Ellen Stewart in a tiny basement on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, La MaMa is dedicated to the artist and all aspects of the theatre. La MaMa has a worldwide reputation for supporting fearless and provocative theater while helping artists gain a foothold in New York. It is one of the original theaters that gave birth to the Off-Off Broadway theater movement, and it has been the training ground and launching pad for a remarkable roster of artists, many of whom have made lasting contributions to the arts. Bette Midler, Blue Man Group, Jackie Curtis, David and Amy Sedaris, Robert Wilson, André DeShields, Harvey Fierstein, Cecil Taylor, Julie Taymor, Philip Glass, Olympia Dukakis, Harvey Keitel and Steve Buscemi, are a few of the many artists who did work here early in their careers.
