The phrase “performance art” can turn off even the most seasoned culture vultures, conjuring images of ketchup and glitter sprayed onto naked flesh as remixed animal sounds ravage your eardrums. That’s why Risk/Reward is such a good model: a handful of new, genre-blurring performances, each capped at 20 minutes, so if something’s not your bag, at least it’ll be over quickly. Up this year: avant tap dance, a “multimedia meditation session,” and Looking for Tiger Lily, an exploration of queerness, ancestral storytelling, and white appropriation by Portland drag clown Carla Rossi, a.k.a. Anthony Hudson, who will at times—gasp!—play himself.
