NAUGHTY FOR NATURE
Birds do it. Bees do it. Even these emcees do it.
Let's get Naughty for Nature -- it's an ecological sex-education via hip-hop, comedy, and sensuous spectacle.
Nate and Hila bring you a rap primer on the gloriously diverse sexual behavior of planet Earth. Learn how honeybees do it, how plants do it, how sex-changing fish do it -- and how you can live your best, sexiest and most environmentally conscientious life as you do it.
By learning about the sex lives of your fellow creatures, you become more intimate with your role in the planetary biosphere. Geek out about Nature with a sex-positive, eco-positive extravaganza featuring original songs, choreography and comedy.
Brought to you by NATE AND HILA, a duo of emcees / performance artists who combine hip-hop, comedy and philosophy to advance social consciousness. Their main areas of focus are ecology and sex positivity -- they invite you to think, laugh, and booty-shake your way into actively loving your planet, and your self. "Raps, facts, and acts, the duo...aims to educate the population about environmental issues through their performances. Zealous about sparking discourse around environmentalism, their show...is an extravaganza of which Bill Nye would be proud" (Fractyll).
Nate and Hila perform regularly in New York City, principally at House of Yes and Caveat NYC, where they've put on numerous original productions. They also recently collaborated with Meow Wolf on music video installations for their new Las Vegas location. When they're not putting on live shows, they're making music videos.
Naughty for Nature was built at House of Yes under the direction of co-founder Anya Sapozhnikova, and the cast is drawn from regular House of Yes dancers and aerialists. It debuted on January 23, 2020 to a sold-out crowd, and the second performance on January 25th sold out as well.
