I’ll be performing and making my directorial debut!

Madness is a complicated, ever-shifting identity, at times coercively assigned to those of us whose minds and ways of being defy the norms, and at other times proudly (re)claimed for ourselves. Madness can come as a breaking point when we’ve endured too much trauma, but that same rupture can liberate us into new possibilities. Get Mad! celebrates madness in all its complexity through spoken word, performance art, film, and trans-media magic. Directed by Kayla Rosen and featuring performances by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, billie rain, Vita B, and Jess Horn, and co-hosted by Anastacia-Renee.
