Readings of Jerker performed this summer and fall!
Inspired by their obsession with Robert Chesley’s archive at the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco and supported by a Eureka Commission from Onassis USA, Ramstad and Crandall are at work on a performance installation focused on “corresponding intimacies,” a term they use to describe deep bonds people create through experimental relations. This event launches their national tour, which is organized to provide free performances at archives and queer/trans spaces while allowing them to conclude their research.
This reading of Jerker is given courtesy of Victor Bumbalo of the Robert Chesley Foundation, Broadway Play Publishing Inc., and through funding from the Eureka Commission from Onassis Foundation USA.
