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 speak about the role performance plays in constellating identity in this highly stimulating, fiercely funny, and opinionated rant with about identity, the culture wars and queer strategies for the future.
