As one of three public events held for the 2013 Sexuality Summer School: ‘Queer Imaginaries’, Lois Weaver (Professor of Contemporary Performance Practice, Queen Mary, London) will be performing ‘What Tammy Found Out: A Front Line Report from the Back Porch, the Schoolyard and the Dinner Table’ at Contact on Wednesday 22nd May, 7.30pm.
Tammy WhyNot is a performance persona claiming to be a trailer park survivor who has taken up a career in country music to become a lesbian performance artist and a university researcher. Tammy is dedicated to the facilitation of public engagement in social and economic justice and experimental forms of democracy. She applies her considerable courage and uncomplicated curiosity to her research project, What Tammy Needs to Know…about education and class; high art and popular culture; performance and human rights; feminism and femininity; and sex and aging. ‘What Tammy Found Out’ is a performance lecture that will present findings from 62 years of research.
