REBEL REVEL is a one-night-only festival celebrating those who truly and boldly push the limits of gender expression, combining drag, burlesque, and fashion, with subversive and often political performances. Inspired by Rampleman’s solo exhibition “Oh! You Pretty Things,” serving as backdrop, featuring vivid video explorations of identity, and set amongst a dazzlingly tall Mylar curtain backdrop, suspended disco ball, and accent stage lighting, the performing artists and models will activate the Weston’s voluminous street level gallery space with their visually stunning creativity, featuring:
- A drag extravaganza including performances by ODD Presents, the new Cincinnati-based alternative drag haus
- Draglesque by nationally renowned and legendary local male illusionist Alexander Cameron
- Burlesque by Ginger LeSnapps—head mistress of the Award-winning Cin City Burlesque and winner of RAW Artists Cincinnati Performing Artist of the Year;
- More burlesque by Cincinnati’s brand new Smoke & Queers—a queer coed amateur burlesque troupe that encourages all expressions of self, gender, identity, and sexuality
- Runway shows from NVISION and NYC’s LACTIC Incorporated
- The premiere of the latest fantastical art-couture stylings by costume and wig designer Stacey Vest of Sweet Hayseed’s Wearable Wonders

“Cincinnati native and Brooklyn-based multimedia artist Rachel Rampleman presents a survey of her documentary and experimental video work featuring single and multi-channel installations from the last decade. Best known for her bodies of work that explore subjects such as gender, artifice, and spectacle, Rampleman showcases exuberantly bold and irrepressible female/femme-identifying personalities who revel in challenging common clichés associated with masculinity and femininity.”
