DarkMatter, is a trans South Asian performance art duo comprised of Alok Vaid-Menon and Janani Balasubramanian. They refer to their performance #ItGetsBitter as an interruption, which exists within the boundaries of spoken word, stand-up comedy, fashion, and nursery rhymes. The duo shares stories of navigating the world in all of its ordinariness and peculiarity as trans South Asians, taking the audience on an emotional roller coaster all of the way from the personal to the political that ultimately strives to imagine new ways of being and resisting together.

This performance is co-presented with the CMU School of Art the Andy Warhol Museum and the Carnegie Museum of Art.

Please note, this performance contains strong language.
