Alexandra Tatarsky is from New York City. Called “a hilarious, finely tuned absurdist” (Theatre Jones) and “an East Village relic” (Vogue), she experienced fleeting fame as Andy Kaufman’s daughter and often performs as a mound of dirt. Her solo shows Beast of Festive Skin, SIGN FELT! and Americana Psychobabble were commissioned by Poetry Electric at La Mama ETC and have toured nationwide. She performs at theaters (The Brick, Dixon Place, JACK, EXIT), galleries (Maccarone, Metro Pictures, Coustof Waxman, Vox Populi, Bronx Art Space), museums (New Museum, Queens Museum, City Reliquary), bars (KGB, Zinc, Half Moon, Bizarre) and brave people’s living rooms. She teaches on holy fools at the School of Making and Thinking (Abrons Art Center) and on performance as community organizing at the School of Authentic Journalism (Mexico City). Research interests include Russian futurist zaum poetry and Lecoq movement pedagogy as twin practices of embodied resistance to totalitarianism.
