The Mickee Faust Club is an arts/activist Community Theater for the Weird Community of Tallahassee, Florida—chief among those are people with disabilities, crips with attitude, LGBTQ+, Seniors, and those in reduced economic circumstance.
The name Mickee Faust is a riff on a certain unctuous rodent living in Orlando and Goethe’s good German doctor whose struggles with the devil mirror the group’s own.
The leader of the Club is Mickee Faust itself, a foul-mouthed, cigar-comping, gender-fluid, sewer rat. In real life, this cigar chomping, male rodent is a deaf, lesbian performance artist.
Faust makes its home in an eclectically painted warehouse inside the Railroad Square Art Park, a funky circle of art and commerce in Tallahassee Florida’s Southside.
For the many decades of its existence, Faust has provided the people of Tallahassee with a non-traditional performance venue shaped by the Ethic of Accommodation, an ethic which allows those who are not just under served but overlooked to develop their own artistic voices.
Throughout the year, novices and professionals work side-by-side in free, on-going workshops to create original cabarets, theater, radio, video as well as protest and celebratory events. Together the members of the Club promote the presence of their alternative creative voice locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
Faust has always been open and free to anyone in the community who’d like to participate.
See you in the Sewer!
