Cats, Criminals & Comedians!: The Untold Herstory of Feminist Performance Art
August 9 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00pm, repeating until Aug 10, 2019
Cats, Criminals & Comedians!: The Untold Herstory of Feminist Performance Art is a one-hour theatrical experience that tells a never-before-heard tale of the radical women (and one man) who remained resilient in the face of an unsympathetic and patriarchal art world. Written by comedian Christine Ferrera, with original music by Dan Hanrahan, Cats, Criminals & Comedians! is both a love letter to the fearless women who have created iconic works of performance, as well as a hilarious satire of the overly competitive and self-serious aspects of the art world. The show features Christine Ferrera (Starbux Diary, She-Devil Comedy Festival), Dan Hanrahan (National Poetry Slam, Amsterdam Fringe), and multi-disciplinary performer Jacob Budenz (Pastel Witcheries, Dreambaby).
Each show will feature opening acts by rare gems of the NYC performance scene, including Penny Arcade, Emma Rogers, Francesca D’Uva, Nadia Pinder, Andrés Govea and Megan Stalter. Aromas and edible delights will stimulate the senses, bringing this little-known dream world to life right before your eyes, ears and noses!
