Blood Shame

Are our responses to trauma beneficial? What if we could erase our trauma? Would we live healthier lives? Blood Shame investigates memories of trauma, challenges James Watson’s theory of genetics, and explores the legacy of slavery in modern America.

Created by Bianca Jones-Marlin, PHD & Benjamin Viertel


An investigation into our internal rhythms and the external factors that set the tempo for our biology, CONTROL CHORUS is a new piece of scientific performance that examines expression & suppression, positive & negative feedback, promotion & inhibition. With a chorus of bodies, brains, & biology calling the shots, how can we be sure who or what is in control?

Created by Dana Abrassart & Anne Cecelia Demelo

Featuring Julia Easterlin, vocals, Charle Van Kirk, drums, and Darren Solomon, keyboards

Zone Out

What would you do if you went to a doctors office at the age of 13 and learn you are not who you have been lead to singularly believe. Who are you then? What does that mean? Do you matter? Can you have a voice? Is this a moment of your life where you can listen to the amount of medical and other peoples personal jargon come at you, or do you out, and maybe go on the best adventure of your life? This is the musical story of a young person who comes to learn they have an intersex condition.

Created by Sharone Halevy, Cathrine Clune-Taylor, PHD & Charlotte Moroz
