Bad & Nasty Founders Holly Hughes and Lois Weaver on HowlRound

Bad and Nasty collective members and performance artists Holly Hughes and Lois Weaver and social media coordinator Mary Jo Watts talk about the origins and aims of this intervention with HowlRound!

I’m hoping that having a nation-wide day of performance will magnify the individual efforts and will remind us that we are the majority. Part of the reason for having something so fluid is that this isn’t a normal situation. There’s something unique about performance, broadly defined, in its ability to resist normalization. Performance can be a loud and bratty art form, and we need something that resists normalization and commodification. – Holly Hughes
