New York actor Christine Bruno will present her one-woman show, Screw You, Jimmy Choo, followed by a question-and-answer session and discussion of her work in disability arts advocacy with Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts.
Women covet them and men covet the women who wear them. All hail the almighty high-heel! Join one sex-crazed New Yorker on her crip-trek through Internet dating, disability stereotypes, sex fantasies, and of course, New York City cab drivers — all viewed through the haze of her unnatural obsession with shoes she can’t wear! Called “compelling, hilarious and very, very sexy,” Screw You, Jimmy Choo was developed at the Actors Studio and received its world premiere in March 2009 at the Art of Difference Festival in Melbourne. In 2010, it premiered in the UK at DaDaFest International in Liverpool. According to renowned disability rights scholar, author and artist, Dr Tom Shakespeare, experiencing Christine Bruno's performance “finally made this uncomprehending male realise the vital importance of footwear!”
