Get Pegged Cabaret featuring Adrienne Truscott and Jackie Soro
The Bearded Ladies' Get Pegged Cabaret
Friday, February 16
Like a poison cookie—tempting and treacherous, pleasing and perilous—Get Pegged Cabaret lures you inside a reimagined La Peg, then jumps you with unrestrained intimacy and performance. Each night features uncensored and stimulating entertainment from the sexy, satirical, daring, delightful, queer, and most dangerous performers from Philadelphia, New York, and beyond.
This Get Pegged performance will be ASL interpreted by Hands UP Productions.
Adrienne Truscott is a choreographer, circus acrobat, dancer, writer, storyteller and comedian. She has been making genre-straddling performances in New York City and abroad for over 20 years. She is one half of The Wau Wau Sisters, her boundary busting neo-vaudevillian collaboration with Tanya Gagne. They are winners of the prestigious 2009 Herald Angel Award and their contemporaries broadly recognize the influence of their radical and ludicrous take on circus and cabaret. Her form-busting and ground-breaking show Adrienne Truscott’s Asking For It: A One-Lady Rape About Comedy Starring Her Pussy and Little Else! won the 2013 Edinburgh Foster’s Panel-Prize, was a finalist for the Total Theater Award for Playing With Form and is considered a critical impetus to the evolving conversation about rape culture. Her latest solo performance piece, THIS, was recently nominated for a 2017 New York Performance Award (Bessie) for Outstanding Production.
Jackie Soro is a multimedia artist with a deep interest in the performance of truth-telling. She is a Sagittarius with a Virgo ascendant and as such has little interest in mincing words. She created the character of Sheryl as a vehicle for her innermost, most troubling trains of thought. Through Sheryl, she channels the everyday rage of living in a fairly unforgiving moment in history as a QPOC femme. With honesty and humor as her guides, she seeks small moments of truth, love, and/or connection with an audience through the haze of a performance of anger. Jackie works in the feminist performance art sphere, most recently with Emily Bate (Going Down Mount Moriah), the Bearded Ladies (Color Me Bearded) and solo performances as Sheryl with the SUPERobject collective.
