On December 19th and 20th, 1997, I collaborated with Kathleen “Snatchleen” O’Shea on our performance, Heavy Petting – The Holiday Classic Tail at Gallery 2 in Chicago. In Heavy Petting, Twinkie and Star Giovanni recounted their run in with a petting zoo at an alien controlled compound through found slides projections.
In Heavy Petting there were special appearances from Nett E. Brenner, Matt and Zoe Orgasma, Melissa Simo, Kate Henricksin and Noel Bartus, Robin Nelson, Meg Duguid, Penny, Kale, Mike Anthony, Trish Happel, Barb Perry, Motae, Kiwi, Princess Jasmine, and Brett McWilliams. Chris Atkins, Bob, and Mike Anthony provided video assistance.
The performance was part of Time Arts Evening at Gallery 2. Also on the program that evening were Melissa Levin, with her videos, Lesbian Helper, and Lisa Lisa; and Jessica Wise with her short film, inside out.
