For 28 consecutive days, nasty women are menstruating onto plywood boards in order to counter the Trump Administration’s attempts to shame and silence us. ALL Women, Menstruating Gentlemen, Non-binary Bleeders, and Menopausal Madams & Gents deserve quality healthcare. Sloughing highlights our ability to sustain, endure, and support one another as we claim space for everyday acts of resistance.
Sloughing is conceptualized and spearheaded by Raegan truax, a performance artist and PhD candidate in Theater and Performance Studies at Stanford University. It is supported by documentary filmmaker and artist Rebecca Sasom and Lexi Johnson, a PhD candicate in Art History at Stanford University. Sloughing, however, relies on a diverse body of individuals who come togather to slough and resist. As such, it highlights the inherent ability of the body to sustain, endure, and claim space for everyday acts of resistance.
This performance is part of 100 Days of Action, a group of artists and activists who are creating a counter-narrative to Trump's one hundred day plan. 100 Days of Action is a forum for resistance, an artistic coming together, an exercise in endurance, a call to all bodies that stand against bigotry, xenophobia, racism, sexism, economic exploitation, and the destruction of our environment to act together.
