Bad Activist: Sex Politics, Palestine and YOU

Humble Mumbles

September 22 at 7:00pm

Runtime TBA

Cost TBA

Venue TBA

Two Jewish American activists. One sordid Jewish–Palestinian romance. One oppressive state! What will the heroines learn about Zionism, mismatched queer desires, cycles of abuse, political guilt-based objectification, and fantasies and realities of domination and submission? Find out more, in this rousing “comedy.”

Learn more about this show from Humble Mumbles company member Rebecca Katherine Hirsch over at the FringeArts Blog.


Humble Mumbles is a many-pronged project of a pollyannaish–Machiavellian nature. As a multimedia storytelling project about Palestine and its many corollaries—such as trauma, guilt, injustice, sex and death—we strive to illuminate the libidinality of ho hum everyday politics. Our main frame is feminism. Our lay infrastructure is queer psychoanalytic, and our primary medium is podcast. The work addresses a variety of topics, but the main theme of each piece is a personal-political exploration of power and oppression. Sometimes we create lyrical anti-zionist academic screeds, apocryphal alternative grunge bands and dreamy, Richard Linklater-influenced talk-based theatre pieces such as this one (Bad Activist: Sex Politics, Palestine and You).
