Sick Girl featuring April Biggs. Afternoon of a Fawning featuring Forrest Jackson, Posy Knight and Zeze Schorsch. Background imagery is a muddy collage of images and textures. Magnified faces, featuring red lips and mascara-ed lashes are overlapped in conflicting expressions of seduction and scowling. In the center, the faint image of a dancer standing on one leg embodies a singular blue eye gazing at you.]
TRIP/syck is an intimate studio show collaboratively presented by local anti-disciplinary maintenance artists Posy Knight (Danceteria, 2021; Winterreise, 2020) Zeze Schorsch (Wisdom Teeth, 2018; Thunder Domestic, 2021), New York transplant and queer disability activist April Biggs, and singer/songwriter Forrest Jackson.

Saturday evening shows will include a brief talkback. Pink House is not wheelchair accessible. Audiences are encouraged to join virtually knowing the artists will be putting care into the virtual audience experience.
TRIP/syck was developed with in-kind support from the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center.
