We s&*%, we f&$@, we kill, we die Mar 20, 2017

While looking for a place where I could write about Jessica’s work, the one that would have a European feel to bring me home (something that is more than 100 years old, with wooden walls, brass fixtures, and high ceilings) walking up the hill, and then down the hill, and then up the hill, then down again, on a first evening in which the sun hiding behind Olympics sets in months, I think how blessed I am to be far, far away from wars.

Sideways: A Review of A Great Hunger By Jessica Jobaris Mar 20, 2017

We compose ourselves 

 

Adjacent to intimacy.

Found pleasure between

The information is in the flesh: An interview with Jessica Jobaris Mar 2, 2017

“I’m really into disruption.”

I could learn from and be moved by her.

Local sorceress Jessica Jobaris and her team of Merry Pranksters take over the mainstage in a blaze of nudity, magic, sorrow, demons, angels, Broadway songs, and other detritus in an evening-length healing ceremony and rage against the dying of the light. This group of local performers are some of the bravest people you'll ever see onstage. Join the melée...you'll be glad you did.
