Called “a hilarious, finely tuned absurdist” (Theatre Jones) and “an East Village relic” (Vogue), Alex Tatarsky experienced fleeting fame as Andy Kaufman’s daughter and often performs as a mound of dirt. Their performances reside in the unfortunate in-between zone of dance-theater, comedy, performance art and deluded rant--sometimes with songs. Venues include theaters (La MaMa, The Kitchen, PSNY, Abrons Arts Center, Gibney), galleries (Maccarone, Metro Pictures, Bronx Art Space), museums (New Museum, MoMA PS1, City Reliquary), comedy clubs (Gotham, The Improv), bars (KGB, Zinc, C'mon Everybody) and brave people’s living rooms. Writing on such topics as spambot poetics and mime politics appear in New Inquiry, Vulture, Garlands, Hypocrite Reader, and ArtReview Asia. Tatarsky is grateful to have been a Movement Research artist-in-residence, an Independence Fellow, and a Pew Fellow. They teach on masks, holy fools, and rot at School of Making and Thinking. Research interests include bootlegs and compost.
