  • Longing for Fat Futures: Creating Fat Utopian Performatives in Burlesque

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I love seeing fat girls on stage. I think it’s important to be a fat girl on stage.When I saw fat burlesque performer Buttah Love perform at the Halloween Revamped Show in San Diego on October 27, 2017, I fell in love with the way she used the stage to create a model of fat futurity. Buttah Love, also known as California’s Chocolate Buttah Babe, radiated an orgasmic sex-positive aura that was intoxicating. Her act, “Sexual Healing,” told a story of Black “pussy power,” the type of femme dominance that seduces you and leaves you wanting more. In this act, Buttah Love enters the stage wearing a white blouse and black pencil skirt. She is carrying a laptop bag, which she sets down when she arrives at the futon at the ... Read More

  • Performing Trans Ontology: The Body (and Body of Work) of Jaimes Mayhew

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article explores ontologies of trans performance through the body— and body of work— of trans artist Jaimes Mayhew. Through a material culture and performance studies approach, this article uses Mayhew’s work to illustrate a material trans performance ontology. It questions what a trans ontology can be when we reject the concept of gender as an exclusively biological performance. Mayhew’s Cut Piece with Transgender Body (after Yoko Ono) offers a culminating case study where the borders of the trans body are unstable and trans ontology is invited into utopic terrain. I use utopia as José Esteban Muñoz does, suggesting that through the dialectic of trans body in performance, transness “is not simply a being ... Read More

  • Scenes of Hope, Acts of Despair: Deidealizing Hybridity in Saya
           Woolfalk’s World of the Empathics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the woods of Greene County, New York, a group of scientists stumble upon a burial site where bones rest amid dirt. Denied a proper burial, the bones lie bare to their environment, becoming hosts to an undetectable fungus. The scientists, all women, note the bones’ resemblance to the skeletal structure of humans, yet it is the fungal growth that inspires their curiosity. They soon discover that the bones’ genetic material descends from both the plant and animal kingdoms. Initially, the women seek only to study the bones’ genetic chimerism, but their extended contact with the fungus-speckled skeletons stimulates their own physical transformation. Upon contact, the fungus emanating from the bones slowly begins to ... Read More

  • Winnie in the Attic and the Joys of Feminist Theater: An Artist’s
           Statement

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: My first feminist theater experience was at a time in my life when I had no idea what feminist theater meant, nor did I care to know. It was a life-changing experience that paved much of my theatrical and existential journey throughout the decades of my life. It happened at a time when feminism wasn’t anywhere in my vocabulary, and my most immediate concern was the daily survival of an oppressive political regime I had had the misfortune of being born under. I could honestly say that this experience saved my life, as it lifted me above the oppressive grayness filled with terror and myriads of material and spiritual deprivations, and it gave me a sense of purpose and joy. I would like to look at this experience ... Read More

  • Disarticulated Membranes: Pregnancy, Excess, and Radical Resistance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: How can we shift our epidemic of individualism from convenience-culture entitlement to self-accountability and creative collective response-ability (meaning “deep listening”)'1 The primordial connection to others and to ourselves requires a deep attention. Confronting climate chaos necessitates individual and collective cocreativity— intellectual, aesthetic, infrastructural risk-taking— broadening our worldview of what is possible as we secede from phallocentric norms. Occupying the Future: Gestation Project—veiled and nude multiple pregnant women lounging and alert throughout the empty auditorium at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Performing Arts.One manifestation of emancipatory politics and the ...

  • Chasing Miss Jimenez: Rereading the Chicana Vendida through Colonial
           Affect-Culture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On a makeshift stage, with crude wardrobes, the 1960s Chicana/o theater troupe Teatro Campesino intrigued its audiences with actos, or one-act plays, meant to elicit social activism, as well as a few laughs from its audience.1 Among their repertoire was Luis Valdez’s play Los Vendidos (1967), which is set in a futuristic imagining of an alternate present where laborers of Mexican descent can literally be bought or sold as robots in Honest Sancho’s Used Mexican Lot and Mexican Curio Shop. The play’s title invokes the term vendidos, used to describe a group of people who have “sold out,” specifically, people of Mexican descent who have turned their backs on their cultural heritage and completely assimilated into US ...

  • “It’s for Now, While We’re Together”: Diana Oh’s Queer Feminist
           of Color Bridgework at the Ancram Opera House

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The soft instrumental sounds of meditation music shift to the light strumming of a guitar. Both are then punctuated by one, two, three knocks. It is unclear where the knocks are coming from, and audience members are too busy conversing, exchanging crayons (one taped to each seat), and coloring picture-book pages to give the knocks their full attention. This time accompanied by a disembodied voice projected through the venue’s sound system (“someone has to open the side door for me”), the knocks come again: one, two, three. The tone of voice directs our collective attention to the door—not through an aggressive demand but through a vulnerable request. A tall, white, older man in jeans and a collared shirt who has ...

  • Everything but the Stage: Toward a Feminist Theatrical Praxis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: What’s my feminist story' Like you, I have many.How does a black feminist grapple with a future that hasn’t happened but must, while witnessing the mounting disposability of black lives that don’t seem to matter'In her most recent work, Living a Feminist Life, independent scholar and feminist writer Sara Ahmed poignantly reflects on her journey to her feminist self. The beauty of Ahmed’s book lies in her articulation of feminism as a state of becoming, not as a point of arrival. Ahmed describes it as a sensorial journey marked by everyday encounters that unsettle and awaken us into a feminist consciousness. Over time, our experiences unsettle us, which in turn propels us in the direction of feminist ideas ... Read More

  • Nonreproducing Women: On the Handmaid Protests and the Failure of
           Coalition Politics in Performance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Wearing red cloaks and white bonnets, heads bowed, mouths in repose, their words are scrawled on the placards they wear around their necks: “This Is How It Starts”; “Never Gilead”; “The Handmaid’s Tale Wasn’t Meant to Be a How-To Manual”; “Kava Hell-Naw”; “Nolite te Bastardes Carborundorum” (“Don’t Let the Bastards Grind You Down”).1 Silent armies of women, their figures identical, familiar, recognizable. The Handmaid—submissive, nonre-active, obedient—is now a symbol of both oppression and resistance. “Every-thing except the wings around [their faces is] red,” June, the protagonist, states in Margaret Atwood’s novel. “The color of blood, which defines us.”2Beginning mid-2017, in response to the emboldened sexism ...

  • Napping in Public: Feminist Practices of Care in Sleep Performance Art

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We have all been told to sleep more. In a recent commercial for mattress brand Nectar, sitcom star and neuroscience PhD Mayim Bialik explains how sleep serves brain function. Costumed in a white lab coat, the live actor Bialik stands between a cartoon brain and a cartoon heart and directly addresses her audience.1 “When you sleep on a crummy mattress, your brain gets tired,” Bialik cautions, and your heart, “an overemotional pump,” drives your decision-making. Bialik bemoans what happens when she is too tired and her emotional heart takes over: she becomes too fatigued to do her job well, as evidenced by an ill-fated romance with a coworker and a weepy demand for her smartphone to love her. Bialik warns her ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: How can we even make theater without hope and love'Theater exists in a temporally contested state, a space where past, present, and future collide to such a degree that new temporal and world-making imaginaries can emerge. While theatrical performance revels in a lively present-moment communion between performers and audience members, the enacted stories and their words are hauntings from the past.1 Artistic traditions, aesthetics, and shapes of characters breathed to life offer spectators a colorful pastiche through which to sift for reflections of their own lives. The constant patterning of repetition—via rehearsal, a show’s season, the restaging of a play over the centuries—further highlights the complex nuances ... Read More
