Dark Matter Presents: Giving Birth To Myself

7 Oct / 8 Oct

What feminine part of yourself did you have to destroy in order to survive in this world? At what point does femininity become synonymous with apology? Who hurt the people who hurt you? Alok Vaid-Menon is trying to figure it out.


Join them for an evening of poetry, stand-up comedy, drag, and more as they take their audience on an emotional roller coaster all the way from the personal to the political.


Alok Vaid-Menon is a nonbinary transfeminine performance artist. Based in New York City, Alok regularly performs to sold-out houses at venues like La MaMa Experimental Theater, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. Alok was recently part of the Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival and the Queer International Arts Festival.
