I'm Too Tired for This S**t!
I'm Too Tired for This S**t!: a fatigue performance show
March 1st and 3rd
Directed by Niamh Timmons
Fatigue is supposedly one of the most common symptoms of chronic illnesses. It is the common thread among so many disabled people. Fatigue can run our lives in nearly every way imaginable. Even more frustrating is when we reach out for support and are met with disbelief from doctors to friends and family. This show is meant to highlight the experiences of those with fatigue. A chance for us to share our stories and hype one another.
Smitty Buckler "I a fractured grey amalgamation of identities that frames my artistic practice as a multimedia artist: film/video, poetry, music, dance, circus and puppetry. The love of my life are two organizations, Collective of Geniuses & Rad Care. I am infatuated with intersections and systems. Growing up in the rural old growth region of central Washington has had a huge impact on the art that I make. I hold being mixed indigenous mentally and physically disabled transsexual with pass privileges. Like a prism, I catch rays of light to illuminate insight into the spaces inside that shine back in return." http://smittybuckler.com/about/artscv/
