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. The granddaughter of Sicilian immigrants who ran Cave of the Winds, the legendary Chicago supper club that hosted touring vaudeville acts, Christine Ferrera creates work in performance, video and painting that explores the intersection of art and comedy. Occupying a unique place in the span of feminist art, her intimate stories begin with a familiar experience and gradually veer into liminal and unpredictable terrain, revealing their emotional core. Christine Ferrera's work has appeared on NPR’s The Story, WYPR’s The Signal and the podcast You/Me/Them/Everybody. She was a featured solo performer in the 2014 Amsterdam Fringe Festival, a 2013 Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award recipient and a 2007 Resident Artist at the Sanskriti Foundation in New Delhi. She has performed at galleries, museums, hotel conference rooms and crawl spaces, internationally. She lives and works and eats and prays and loves in Baltimore, USA.
George Cory Todd is a musician and sound artist based in Berkeley, California, releasing his debut Icon on February 26th, 2019 via Atlantic Rhythms. Icon, like its creator, ekes out a space for emotion, creativity and privacy, introspection not found easily in a loud world. It’s ambient work, tinged and interrupted by dense texture, a bridge between the mental and the physical world, between states of thinking and being.
