Mx. Oops is a shapeshifting, ambisexual juggernaut from a sister dimension. Multimedia performance art and metaphysics come together in a fit of ecstatic uncertainty. Live for the moment, and join Mx. Oops on the journey to freedom. “What is the price of admission?” you ask…an open heart, a fluid mind, and a willingness to resonate with your inner freak.
