Mondo Lucha Debuts
We are proud to be sponsors of our own Andrew Gorzalski’s latest project, the Mondo Lucha Variety Show — debuting at Turner Hall Ballroom at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27. Mondo Lucha draws inspiration from performance art’s strange, seedy past with enough retro kitsch to fill a historic ballroom. It takes the art of Mexican Lucha Libre wrestling, the sass of burlesque and the curious intrigue of carnival freak shows and throws them into a blender to create a nonsensical, yet totally mesmerizing experience.
“We kind of envisioned it like watching the ‘Donny & Marie Show’ on acid,” says Gorzalski, who teamed up with Jay Gilkay (of Evel fame, for all you old-school punks) to bring us this “back-alley, trashy, south-of-the-border version of Cirque du Soleil.”
