Crotch (all the Joseph Beuys references in the world cannot heal the pain, confusion, regret, cruelty, betrayal or trauma...)
Performance & installation: Keith Hennessy
Produced by: Zero Performance
Crotch references the images and actions of artist Joseph Beuys. On the surface the work is about art, its histories and heroes. Deeper, a sadness grows, a queer melancholy.
“Crotch is ultimately about ritual and healing through daringly intimate human connection."
Minneapolis Star Tribune
Onstage assistant: Ryan Eggensperger
