Overthrowing Capitalist Heteronormativity Has Never Been So Simple!

Transsexual performance artist Annie Danger is smart and weird. These qualities are requirements for being a good performance artist, but let’s set that aside. At faux-professional motivational seminar It’s That Easy!, Danger’s Terry VanWeen (pronounced “van-veen”) brings together elements that, left on their own, would avoid each other: radical left-wing activism and khaki pants. In Danger’s capable hands, however, these natural enemies make comedy and genuine inspiration. Although we don’t recommend throwing fist-sized rocks at Tony Robbins, VanWeen does. On the bullet-point list of assertions made by the cornflower-blue-shirted personal coach is that you will “develop the physical vitality you need to passionately follow through on fighting the man!” Smart. Weird. Part of the National Queer Arts Festival.
