Beyond having amazing art The Secret City has an enviable roster of performers. One of them being the hilarious Butt Kapinski.
Read more about Butt below and take a moment to watch her at work.
And then help the SC with your Nikwels and Diwums.
Deanna Fleysher (not only the mind behind Butt but helped direct Red Bastard) is a performer, director and teacher. Inspired by clown, improv comedy, commedia dell-arte and bouffon, she creates comedy which tackles the thornier topics of being human. Deanna relies on improvisation and collaboration as tools of creation. She has performed at various seedy joints around New York City including Galapagos, Symphony Space, Lincoln Center and many others. (READ MORE.)

“In October 2007, I rented a small white room on West 14th Street in New York City. I asked three friends to meet me there, and to bring anything they might like to share in the way of a poem or a quote or a picture. We sat in a circle on the floor and I explained that I wanted to start a sanctuary for artists, a regular gathering that would celebrate the creative spirit and those who keep it alive. We discussed the idea, and everyone shared their poems, pictures and quotes. We all agreed that a monthly event celebrating artists and creativity could be a very powerful thing. We all left feeling excited. I booked the room for a Sunday morning the following month. And so the Secret City was born.”
