Alone/Together we find solidarity and community in the creative process and mobilize femmeness through our performative art forms.
“If you have that funny terrible thing which every artist can recognize and no artist can define - You are responsible to share it. This creative force which you didn’t ask for, and this destiny which you must accept, is also your responsibility. For it is the artist who can tell the story of what it is for anyone who gets to this planet, how to survive it.” (James Baldwin - paraphrased)

Katie Piatt, a performance artist living, playing dress up, and telling jokes that also count as fine ar (thanks for asking X)), in Portland, OR by way of southwest Missouri. At Alone/Together Katie will perform: Male Fragility: A Night of Rant & Reaso. atriarchy’s tradition of cutting off men from their feelings and solely rewarding aggression leaves us all with stories to tell, and sometimes, rant. This piece is a critical loved letter to men. Or to put it anther way -- you're very loved, but also accountable, and nothing helps us learn more than participation.

Kelly Nesbitt, a performance artist who creates original outlandish performances that are character driven, rooted in movement-based theater, find power in the femme experience, and defy easy categorization. At Alone/Together she will perform: POONSTRUCK™, er hilarious one woman shero's journey told through the character Dr Tallulah (a fiery Sexual Activist, Zen Cosmetologist, and Vaginal Consciousness Pioneer), who juxtaposes pratfalls with the seriousness, absurdities with sincerity, and pathos with humor while exploring themes of aging, womanhood, sexuality, intimacy, societal expectations, individualism, collective consciousness, whiteness, and alienation. kellynesbitt.com (30 min)
