Sassafras’ past performance work has included:
Traitors without (T)reason
Written and Performed by PoMo Freakshow (Kestryl Cael and Sassafras Lowrey)
Kestryl and Sassafras are a queer couple that, despite their best efforts, pass as straight more often than they like to admit. Perforating privilege and complicating queerness, Traitors without (T)reason explores the betrayal, invisibility, sacrifice, subversion, and loss that are inextricably tied into public passing. Are you with us or are you against us?
Traitors without (T)reason premiered on July 14, 2008, at Dixon Place in New York, NY, as part of HOT! The 17th Annual Celebration of Queer Culture.
The Femme Show
In 2008 Sassafras toured the NE with The Femme Show. The Femme Show is a revue of smart, sexy, interactive performance about queer femme identity that features film, dance, literary readings, burlesque, drag, and performance art from award winning artists.
The Language of Paradox
The Language of Paradox (LOP) was a performance group founded and directed by transgender pioneer Kate Bornstein. The show made up of a queer ensemble grappled with the complexities of sex, gender, desire, life, love, survival and so much more. From 2003-2005 LOP performed at community centers, conferences, and performances spaces around the NW.
