03 P.I.G.


2009, live performance
Wu Tsang, Zackary Drucker, and Mariana Marroquin with video by Rhys Ernst

Addressing notions of misinformation and revolutionary impulses, P.I.G. is a performance that stages a meeting of politically involved “girls.” This multimedia work places the trio of Zackary Drucker, Mariana Marroquin, and Wu Tsang within a dialog about contemporary trans politics as it relates to the history of civil rights movements. Inspired by non-hierarchical forms of social gathering, P.I.G. uses tropes of consciousness-raising and group therapy to explore language, identity, agency, and the societal construction of trans as a “monstrous biological joke.”

Performed at:
