Mina Hollander was born in the summerlands but is colder than a Dutch Wife. She is black or blue or black and blue or pure chocolate and innocently horny. She writes and reads things no one else can see. On the off chance that you recognize her, you may still be asleep. (Did you know hares are solitary animals? Whereas rabbits live in big family warrens.) Mina Hollander is crepuscular & herbivorous, a prey quite afraid of apex predators like you.

Brown, Dwight Rhoden, Uri Sands, Darrell Grand Moultrie and Sidra Bell. Her latest single 'Take Cover' is available for purchase and live streaming on iTunes, Amazon.com and Spotify.

We are five "senior" improvisers who have performed at Huge Theater in four different shows. We are quite silly and irreverent and have gained a reputation in the local improv scene which is mainly comprised of young folks. We get sug- gestions from the audience and create scenes you've never seen before, and will never see again. We hope to add some lightness in these trying times.

House of Larva was founded in 2014 at Beloit College, WI by drag ogress--Cicada L'Amour-- and her parasitic lover--Enfanga Sphynx. The Co-Operative grew to include numerous queer artists and provided platforms for drag, dance and performance art at Beloit college from 2014-16 through our cabarets, including Carnal Instinct: Dinner for One and Slut Shaman. L'Amour and Sphynx moonlight as dragademics whose research includes queer temporality, immigrant identities, transgenerational trauma, cosmic pessimism, and borders in/outside the body. This is House of Larva's Twin Cities Debut.
