You, Me, and Astrology // Free Fringe Philly

Performer Nikki Hartung is bringing her show You, Me, and Astrology to Tattooed Mom as part of Free Fringe Philly!

8:30pm Show // FREE // 21+

Sometimes life events happen that make you want to understand yourself and the world around you on a deeper level… to make sense of the chaos that flows around us and within us… and sometimes, we just want to be entertained. Western horoscopes can be just that; Guidance, explanation & gosh darn fun. In this work in progress show, Nikki explores the 12 zodiac signs through characters, personal essay and song in the hopes of –like many 20 something, city-living millennials– understanding more of the world around her and herself. Mixed as well with some dance, real horoscopes and — a face mask?! #taurusbaby”

**Please note this show is a work in progress. Like our lives… so be kind :)**

IN PASTA // Free Fringe Philly

In Pasta is coming to Tattooed Mom as part of Free Fringe Philly!

10:30pm Show // FREE // 21+

Have you ever achieved something you don’t think you deserved? Do you have big dreams that are incompatible with your small sense of self? Are you terrified that everyone you’ve tricked into thinking highly of you will one day see you who you really are? Do you eat your feelings?

Let’s slurp down those bad thoughts together! Get lost in the sauce as we explore imposter syndrome — the inability to accept how awesome you are– in the most al dente way possible. Mamma Mia, I’m a spicy meatball!
