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; Sickgirl, 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.
