About this event

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Text in bright yellow, orange and green reads TRIP/syck. In-person and online. June 24 and 25. 6:00/7:30 pm. Pink House. sliding scale. BIOPIC featuring Selena Milewski. Sick Girl featuring April Biggs. Afternoon of a Fawning featuring Forrest Jackson, Posy Knight and Zeze Schorsch. Background imagery is a muddy collage of images and textures. Magnified faces, featuring red lips and mascara-ed lashes are overlapped in conflicting expressions of seduction and scowling. In the center, the faint image of a dancer standing on one leg embodies a singular blue eye gazing at you.]

TRIP/syck is a collection of intimate studio showings collaboratively presented by New York transplant and queer disability activist April Biggs - she/her, local anti-disciplinary maintenance artists Posy Knight - she/they (Danceteria, 2021; Winterreise, 2020) and Zeze Schorsch - they/them (Wisdom Teeth, 2018; Thunder Domestic, 2021), and singer/songwriter Forrest Jackson - he/him. TRIP/syck will take audiences on an interactive journey exploring coping mechanisms and art making with audio/visual, physical, technological and therapeutic elements in three parts; Sick Girl, a Milwaukee premiere by April Biggs, is an autoethnographic and interdisciplinary solo, exploring her disabled and medicalized body as a site of chimeric world-breaking and world-making – a cyborg bodymind imagining itself into a wingèd creature;; BIOPIC, a satirical one-woman award show created by Schorsch with performer Selena Milewski - she/her; and Afternoon of a Fawning, inspired by the evolution of choreographic process from the birth of modernism to post-pandemic zoom dance. Audiences can attend one or both shows in person or online and will have a chance to interact with the installation, enjoy refreshments and meet the artists in between the 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm shows.

Pink House is not wheelchair accessible. Audiences are encouraged to join virtually knowing the artists will be putting care into the virtual audience experience.

TRIP/syck was developed with in-kind support from the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center.
