"...a deftly calibrated explosion of dancer buff bodies and rock and roll hearts" - VILLAGE VOICE

In 1995, SLANT premiered “Big Dicks Asian Men” to critical acclaim at New York City’s landmark experimental theater, La Mama E.T.C. Since then, they have created nine original theatrical productions of high energy performance art. All of SLANT's shows involve live original music written by the three members, Wayland Quintero, Richard Ebihara, and Perry Yung. The shows are a confluence of puppetry, guitars, drums, voice, and bamboo flutes. The New York Times describes SLANT as "Three extremely talented young Asian American men".

"Through dance, rock, and inventive dialogue, their pithy lesson induce convulsive laughter that makes their medicine easy to swallow and long-lasting. They polish their limber bodies and deadly wit with a chamois
drenched in a winning sense of fun". - The Philadelphia Weekly
