City Slang: Dirty Show 13.5 will include dancing

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2012 at 7:16 AM

Anybody familiar with the world famous Dirty Show that takes place around Valentine’s week every year at Bert’s Warehouse will know that visitors can see some crazy-ass performance art.

This September (21-23), there will be an extra event at Clutch Cargo's in Pontiac, dubbed Dirty Show 13.5, and for the first time it will include dancing.

They say that “the big news is after 3 years of begging and ingratiation, [organizer] Jerry Vile has convinced the world renown and controversial artist, Gregory de la Haba to display one of his most infamous sculptural installations, "Equus Maximus." De La Haba’s ambitious multi-media installation caused a stir at the 2008 Art Basel in Miami, and is now the centerpiece of the 13.5 version of The Dirty Show.

We don’t quite know yet what the “dancing” will entail, but it’s sure to be dirty. WAHAY!

Find out for at the Dirty Show website.
