Guest Hannah Schwadron gives a new slant on DIY performance and the connections between research and performance.  Schwadron is a decidedly serious scholar from and a funky, funny, provocative DIY performer. Her investigations/performances roam around issues of gender, humor and sexiness in the neo-Jewish female burlesque and cabaret-dancing shows that attract a devoted niche audience and performances by smart women breaking boundaries and asking questions.
