at the end there is a prize you don’t recognize

Barring sleet/fire/snow/last-minute meetings i must take–warning: there is a 97% chance of one these things occurring–I will in fact be reading and performing a new feminist time-based piece on the two tiniest-town dates of the Al Burian/ Jessica Hopper summer reading tour.
Pride Up Head Down is a semi-autobiographical dance/reading performance about isolation, fistfighting, real-life heartbreak, real-life murder/suicide, the circular battlefield of redemption as attainable idea, using yr bloody nubby finger stubs to climb the fuck out of a mental sewage plant, early 20th century Mexican immigration and America’s iron-fisted assimilation tactic of cultural shame, bad education and disinformation, sitting in a gutter, and re-imagining an ending where everyone wins. Okay I will uprock!
July 19th: Providence, RI @ Dirt Palace Feminist Art Space – 7:30 pm

I have never been to providence but it is my sixth or seventh favorite song on “daydream nation” (“eliminator jr” is the first). i have never been to easthampton but have spent a great deal of time in northampton and amherst, which i imagine share similar terrain. i hope i can come see you!
