Yesterday's Garbage

  • Theater Exile 1340 South 13th Street Philadelphia, PA, 19147 United States (map)

Act Name:  Yesterday's Garbage

Running Time: 40 minutes to 4 hours

Location: Theatre Exile 1340 S 13th St.

Accessibility: There is an elevator down to a ramp, so folks with limited mobility are able to access the theater. Unfortunately we don't have specific accommodations for people with low vision or low hearing. Because we don't know about the content of the show, we aren't totally sure that being able to see and hear everything is totally necessary in order to enjoy the performance.

Description: Yesterday's Garbage: Anita Holland and Annie Wilson are “organizing” and “hosting” the “open-mic-ish-type-night.” We hope it’s the “worst” one we’ve “ever” been involved with. Why? A bunch of rich-ass dummies with no taste have created arbitrary and tasteless standards to define “good” art. Those standards create an aesthetic that is deeply instrumental to our hypercapitalist, imperialist, racist, exploitative system. If we release striving for “good,” maybe something else is possible. Perform at one or both shows. Intrude, perform, leave. Come watch. Support other performers, or not. Drink shrubs or beers or water. Eat snacks. Or don’t. Walk out. Walk in. Boo. Cheer.

Cast: Anita and Annie are hosting, and the list of performers will be updating probably until 10 minutes before the show starts.

Seating: Seated and/or Standing first come first serve, no RSVP tickets

Dates and Times: Friday, September 6th, 10:15-ish pm, Sunday September 8th 9:15-ish pm (it starts during Annie's fringe show which is of indeterminate length)

BIO. Anita Holland is a performance artist, deviser, theatre maker, avid mover, and children’s book author. Anita’s work interrogates language, excavates ancestry, and strolls with the jungian shadow. They are building a creative family in Philadelphia. Annie Wilson makes performances. She thinks that If the body is the locus of all earthly experience, performance is a place to put it under a microscope. Or telescope. This creative collaboration came out of a shared hatred for "national treasure" Tom Hanks.
