SubletSeries: Co-Op

high functioning x.0

Aug 20-21

high functioning x.0 is a cacophony of x’s dreams, nightmares, and memories. Recalling 1999 thru 2021, x dives into their subconscious thoughts, breaking the ~4th wall~ and inviting their audience into their reality and truths. With text pulled from x’s journal entries, this multimedia performance/installation experience paints a world that feels like an infinite dreamscape. This piece is defiantly non-normative as it explores what disabled productivity can look like while constantly moving towards an end- product of perfection that doesn’t exist. This pseudo-memoir taps into history, ancestry, factoids, and falsehoods with discordant soundscapes, fervent dancing, and stand up dramedy. x is uniquely complex, and simultaneously, just like you and me. We hope you enjoy the ride and have aftercare in place—you’re gonna need it.
