Pony in there Somewhere trots between reckless optimism and total despair, creating a humorous reflection of what it means to be critically unclaimed and internationally unknown. Naturally, with all this horse manure (read: emerging artistry), there must be a pony somewhere (read: something worth your time).

CRABS IN A BUCKET/ PAIGE IS NOT A LESBIAN
CRABS IN A BUCKET/ PAIGE IS NOT A LESBIAN

Performed by Paige Haroldson and Ashley R.T. Yergens

Dixon Place's 24th Annual HOT! Festival

Dixon Place

July 31, 2015.

 

When you catch a crab and place her in a bucket, the first thing she’ll try to do is escape. When two crabs are placed in a bucket, as soon as one tries to climb up out of the bucket, the other will pull the escaping crab back down and try to escape itself. Enter the Midwestern lesbian prom that Ashley never had. Here, we’ll recognize the “buckets” we keep each other in and have a queerness competition.
