6 Mile Negus on the Honor Roll at Michigan, written by thoroughbred Detroiter Justin Gordon, is a book of poems that chronicles his polarizing run at the University of Michigan. Gordon is an actor for the stage and screen, and occasionally uses rap and an alto saxophone to assist his storytelling. Justin enjoys building community centers and teaching folks how to read, write and be confident.

Darg Show is the first installment in a series of women performing one-man autobiographical
shows written by men for themselves, interspersed with drag king performances of music
written and/or popularized by men. Tori Bentley performs text by John Fugelsang, Cecilia
Corrigan performs text by Ian McKellen, and Sarah Krasnow and Yuri Zupancic video-ify
Fatboy Slim and Meat Loaf.

Sarah is a performer, writer, director, dramaturg, and French teacher. Recent productions
include Knacked and Secrets of Green-Wood at The Exponential Festival (2020 and 2019
respectively) and the new music opera I Looked at the Eclipse at Roulette in 2019. Sarah
appeared in the 2018 feature film Madame de Void, directed by Felix Bernstein and Gabe
Rubin, and performed in and served as dramaturg for the Motherland political satire series by
performance artist Cecilia Corrigan. In 2015, Sarah directed her own translation of Le Problème
by French playwright François Bégaudeau for the ARACA Project. She unironically loves Meat
Loaf and is proud to share a birthday with him: September 27.

Tori Bentley is New York-born, Los Angeles-based comedic actor and writer. She loves free food
and misses live performances. Her background is in clown and stand-up.

Cecilia Corrigan is a writer and performer. In 2019, she received Bedlam Theater
Company’s first ever commission, to write and act in a contemporary, queer adaptation
of Molière’s The Misanthrope. Corrigan will play Celimène in the production. While
writing the script for The Misanthrope, Corrigan created an original pilot project,
currently in development with Andrew Lauren Productions and Killer Films.

YURI ZUPANCIC, video artist
Yuri Zupancic (AKA Yuri Z) is an American artist based in Paris. Born in 1980 and
largely self-taught, he creates paintings, video art, drawings, sculptures, and
installations which often explore the intersections of nature, technology, and
contemporary philosophy. His video art has been featured in many collaborative
installations and performances with international artists, musicians, and dancers and his
signature works, miniature oil paintings on microchips, are exhibited in galleries


Simple Town makes comedy in Brooklyn. Their videos have appeared on Adult Swim and NoBudge, and their plays have been featured in Exponential Festival and Title Point’s ?!: New Works Festival. Simple Town is Ian Faria, Sam Lanier, Caroline Yost, Felipe Di Poi, and Will Niedmann.
