i sing the body electric: a literary bacchanal
2/26 @ noon-2:30pm
"If you can't talk about something, you can't think about something," writer Eula Biss told Krista Tippett in a recent interview.
Join us in late February, as alumni of Kati Standefer's writing classes-- writers of sex, illness, and trauma-- read together for the first time.
In the classes Kati teaches, participants write the body to call it into being: to celebrate the brightness of sex or to untangle its complication; to find the wisdom at the heart of our illness journeys or to scrutinize the way callous medical care distances us from our own bodies; to write violence against the body with beauty, to write the perpetrator into humanity, to come into new relation with the things that have broken and remade us. We speak what is unspeakable, and afterward more is possible.
Come hear these brave, funny, and insightful stories of the body, at the precise time we most need them. The perfect sun-and-shade-speckled patio of Tucson Hop Shop will play the role of the bacchanal venue. There'll be cold beer, chilled wine, ciders and lemonades and sodas and artisanal snacks. Hot Bamboo will be on site in The Metal Arts Village Tucson for dinner, because no food sounds sexier than "hot steamed buns."
Readers include Sara Hubbs, Maryrose Larkin, Kali Kennedy, Chris McGuire, Shefali Milczarek-Desai, Taylor Ducklow, Lee Anne Gallaway-Mitchell, Lisa Bowden, Red Samaniego, Anna Stokes and Natalie Wardlaw and others. As our rangey essayists may read about hot liaisons, violent relationships, and moments facing death, THE EVENT IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN, and the beer garden will be an adults only arena for the duration of the reading. Don't worry, there are plenty more spaces the the Hop Shop for families to relax together!
**What is a bacchanal? In Ancient Rome, Bacchanalia were festivals to the god of wine, Bacchus, marked by intoxication and sexual rituals (some of which may have involved violence). But today we know the term bacchanal as referring to any wild revelry, and in this instance we use it to honor a celebration of the body in its full experience, gorgeous and dark, beautiful and painful.

ABOUT THE FILM
The Sisterhood of Shred is a community of women riders that motivate each other in their daily lives and push their personal limits while supporting each other emotionally, physically, and socially. Finding women who are free riders, dirt jumpers, and skate park riders can be hard; however, these women use various methods to establish connections and build community through outreach by using social media, videos, as well as hosting their own women’s events. Doing this allows these women a place to go where they feel accepted while simultaneously building skills, confidence, and lasting friendships which spread to these women’s other social networks. This has led to a dramatic increase in the amount of women riders who are seeking out more female oriented events and people who share these commonalities. From all walks of life and different points around the globe, each woman has different reasons for taking part in the Sisterhood but ultimately seemed to find what they never knew they were looking for; a supportive woman oriented community.
This film is a full-length documentary which highlights key players involved in the Sisterhood of Shred; from coaches to mothers, supporters to the up-and-coming riders. We follow these riders throughevents and dailly lives to examine what motivates them but more importantly, what draws them to this particular community.
