Get set for an evening of outrageous satire, unrestrained passion, and unapologetic viewpoints as performance artists Holly Hughes and Tim Miller each share their latest contemplations on contemporary society—shaking audiences out of their complacency and provoking movement and thought.

In Sapphic Sampler Platter, Hughes unleashes her experiences—from being a poster child for the cultural wars and a fellow traveler at the WOW café (a home for wayward girls), to a feminist cooperative for feminists who were kicked out of other feminist groups for having the wrong haircut and her misadventures in academia. It’s a middle life crisis in the key of canine, shot through with poetry and biting wit.

In Sex/Body/Self, Tim Miller shares excerpts from his work and speaks about the role performance plays in constellating identity in this highly stimulating, fiercely funny, and opinionated rant with performance about identity, the culture wars and queer strategies for the future.

TICKETS

Fri, Sept. 28, 2012 at 8pm John Fleck takes the audience on a hair-raising roller coaster ride with a pair of Mad Women: Judy Garland & John Fleck's mother, Josephine. Buckle up and hold on tight as they twist, wind & sing their way through the cultural mindset of the late 1960s! Plus Catch 23: Broken Negative, a work in progress by Karen Finley where she uncovers and reveals the desperation of making meaning out of trauma creatively. The piece—part memory, part emotional individuation, part research and discovery—revisits the inspiration of her earlier iconic works that confronted subjects such as abuse, female rage, violence, homophobia and the outsider.
