October 27, 2019: Mike Albo + Christen Clifford + Magda San Millan
Sundays on Broadway and guest curator Adrienne Truscott present an evening of performance by Mike Albo, Christen Clifford, and Magda San Millan.
Mike Albo's performances are a combination of characters, monologue and standup, using comedy as social critique. He will present current and in progress work that addresses our obsessions and anxieties of the moment.
Christen Clifford (“Provocative, humorous and potent”- Hyperallergic) presents an excerpt from Cancer: A Love Story, her first solo show in ten years. “In March 2016, in the midst of the political sideshow that has transformed our culture, I was diagnosed with ovarian and uterine cancers. I knew that I couldn’t fuck or drink my way through this so I documented everything.” Cancer: A Love Story is a show about rape, illness and the crazy things we do to heal ourselves. Directed by Lucy Sexton.
Magda San Millan presents The Cock Painter. She paints life-size images of men being devoured by their own penises, based on classical masterpieces. This solo-show uses stand-up comedy, dream analysis, the studio visit format, and psychoanalysis to elaborate on human stench, sexuality, and sadness.
