Sex, food trends, burlesque, performance art — how else would the Eating Disorder team end the year? Paul Gerrard and Crazy Legs Conti are joined by Julie Atlas Muz, one of the most acclaimed and prolific conceptual performers and choreographers in New York, sucker punches the boundaries between performance art, dance and burlesque with dark, twisted, come-hither performances that have secured her place in the underworld of nightlife as well as the bastion of the art world. On any given night in New York City, you can see Julie Atlas Muz peeling off the outlandish costumes she dons, covered in fake blood in the basement of a gay bar or co-hosting America’s Favorite Burlesque Gameshow This or That! on public access–in essence, expressing her bawdy, irreverent and unexpected sense of humor.
