Jillian McManemin‘s caressingly transgressive storytelling and Rbt. Sps.‘ karaoke renditions of 70s/80s Nashville Country legends’ greatest hits present dichotomies of heteronormative and queer culture.  Addressing themes of romance and mischief, these artists redefine traditional relationships in sultry and charmingly kitsch ways. Prelude to a Film: Confederitis is the first opportunity to view and examine the underbelly of their upcoming feature-film.  Through performance, selected plot lines, and screenings, McManemin and Sps. give the audience a rare glimpse on how their characters found one another. 

 

Suggested donation $5
