Zealous Hellions

Zealous Hellions is a project of Mixed Blood Theatre to provide our community with real-time, face-to-face conversations between artists, cultural provocateurs, politicians, and thought-leaders in an intimate setting.

Past events featured:

  • Four inimitable artists, Suzy Messerole and Signe Harriday from the gold-medal winning synchronized swim team Subversive Sirens¬†and Sandra Richardson and Deneane Richburg from the genre-defying performing arts company Brownbody, discussed their art and activism; unique methods of development and performance; and making space for folks who have traditionally been denied access to pools and ice skating rinks.
  • Ellie Krug esteemed writer, lawyer, school board member and human Ellie Krug ¬†reflected on the work being done to protect trans kids in schools and on her work changing hearts and policies from within systems of all kinds.
  • Minneapolis City Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins, the first African American openly trans woman to be elected to office in the United States. A nationally and internationally recognized performance artist, poet, and transgender activist, Andrea spoke about art, race, politics, gender, and more.
