Bringing together artists who work in film, stand-up comedy, and performance, “Can you take it from ‘Hey, Tracy…’” is a panel discussion that explores the potentiality of performing and disrupting different kinds of scripts. Considering the productive possibilities born through channeling the voices of others, the panel will consider ways that different types of language might be assumed, altered, redirected, and revived with radical and subversive implications.

Panelists will include Gregg Bordowitz, an artist and a writer, Erin Markey, a writer, a comedian, and a performance artist, and Elisabeth Subrin, a filmmaker, artist, and writer.
