Performance, Politics, and Identity: A Conversation between Ita Segev and Ann Pellegrini

Performance, Politics, and Identity

Ita Segev creates performance, writes, performs/acts and does advocacy & community building work, mainly around the intersection of her transfemininity and Palestinian solidarity as an Israeli.  She is currently making a show titled 'Knot in My Name' as a Brooklyn Art Exchange 2018/2019 artist in residence.
