Weryd Wimmen III
Beth Heinly, Chloe Coover, Cory Kram, Eileen Doyle, & Kate Speidel

An evening of performance art featuring the feminist perspective from emerging Philadelphia performers. Each performance offers it’s own unique hilariousness through the visceral experience. The lineage of influence veers between the Annie Sprinkles’, Andrea Frasers’, Yvonne Rainers’ and Karen Finelys’ who pioneered the practice of expressing the queer, fetishized, feminist and emotional parts of performance art to a live audience. Using pop culture, the personal experience and our computers, Weryd Wimmen once again offers up an evening of performance not to be missed. It’s not Shakespeare, but it would be if there was performance art in 1603.

Beth Heinly Too Much Information
My performances throughout the duration of the Weryd Wimmen performance series have taken on a form of writing. The writing is kin to pen meeting the paper (intuitively written).  The piece I will be performing for Weryd Wimmen 3 is written directly from a dream. The performance includes costume choices from my Valentine’s Day performance, a cocktail dress and high heels, modified slightly w/ vampire teeth. This character embodies a sociopathic and sexulaized female body that all together falls apart in front of the audience while controlling them. Prepare to be exposed to a sad state of symbolic gestures which have to do with self-doubt, contempt and freedom.

Chloe Coover presents Krysten Ritter Presents: A Girl Called Jar Jar
Chloe Coover is a hot funny pescatarian bitch who doesn’t read anymore and spends 85.75% of her time on social media and Tinder. Chloe graduated with a Co-ordinated BFA from PAFA and UPenn in 2012, and has exhibited/performed her work across Philadelphia (including 2 previous performances at Vox Populi), New York, and farther afield since. In 2015, she collaborated with Chicago artist Molly Hewitt on an exhibition (“The Cissy Room”) at Front/Space Gallery in Kansas City, MO. Chloe is also a musician, and released an album “Songs from a Bedroom in an Alternate Universe” in 2014. She’s more of a Blair than a Serena, despite being a blonde; probably could be described as a Carrie/Samantha cusp; and is arguably more of a spicy baby than Baby Spice.

Cory Kram A. Void. A. Noid.
Cory Kram presents a dramatic reinterpretation of the infamous Dominoes Pizza Noid, an advertising character wrapped in mystery and absurdity.

Kate Speidel
The Night is My Friend
You are feeling compressed and weighted. The afternoon is endless and it sits on your face and wrists.
It’s like you’re dead all day. At night you are plucked from your house out into the street.
It’s very dark but you are not afraid.
