Feel the burn The Mission District’s darlings of urban athleticism, Double Dutchess, have outdone themselves once again, this time on video. Switchblade, Valtronic, Little Girl, and Kate Rock present the Bay Area premiere of ‘Flextacy,’ showing as part of the Artists’ Television Access series Open Screening. Originally conceived as a how-to guide on double Dutch jump-roping, “Flextacy” more closely resembles a 1980s aerobic workout video following the ladies’ training from sunrise to sunset. Clad in tan tights and matching neon workout gear, the Dutchesses demonstrate their Jane Fonda-meets-Linda Lovelace approach to the finer points of cardiovascular toning. Elaborately choreographed jumping scenes punctuate the action and help to relieve some steam. Highly recommended for the athlete and pervert in everyone.
