Twisted Windows invites you to create a unique experience exploring concurrent ambient performances, innovative interactive activities, visual art, and sexy main stage spectacle. Very minimal seating will available outside the VIP area – the event is intended to be enjoyed by moving about the space rather than as a seated audience. A coat and bag check will be available. After our formal performances wrap up, you’ll be warmed up and ready for the play portion of our event (or you’re welcome to continue to socialize and watch)! Twisted Windows is proud to showcase & advocate for sex workers, and all performers are compensated for their contributions.
