I come from political organizing and journalism in israel-palestine and have focused on queer, feminist and sex worker struggles, anti-apartheid/anti-occupation/anti-racist work and de-exotifying and de-mystifying the positions of those considered sexual or political deviants. I started performing in street interventions and queer events before placing my work on stage. In Watch Me Work I served live webcam sex work at the intersection with feminism. Democracy in Israel – a live performative intervention dealing with elections, false notions of democracy, ‘choice’ and BDSM was performed on the streets and voting polls in Israel’s election day and will soon become a short film. My current research Terrorism is for Everybody asks to re-legitimize minority-based struggles that are delegitimized by the title of ‘terrorism’ through queer performative tactics.
