Performance artist and musician Bitch tells the story of her life and reclaims the word Bitch for a name in this one-woman musical play full of violins, synths, and huge vocals.
Performance artist, musician and queer music icon Bitch tells the story of her life in this musical one woman show. From the moment she ‘rides’ her broomstick onto stage, she weaves a colorful tale of how a shy and introverted child goes on to reclaim the word Bitch for a name. This empowering, funny and heart-felt show is woven together with violin-forward pop songs from her most recent album “Bitchcraft,” which came out earlier this year on Kill Rock Stars.
Bitch is a trained violinist, first appearing with her band Bitch and Animal. The band went on tour with Ani DiFranco who they met while playing a gig at a pizza shop in Provincetown. Since going solo, Bitch has toured with The Indigo Girls, produced two albums of her folk Idol Ferron, played herself in John Cameron Mitchell’s (Hedwig and The Angry Inch) “Shortbus,” and collaborated with Margaret Cho, Joey Soloway, Faith Soloway, God-des and Logan Lynn.
