I'm Very Into You
by The Vortex

Feb. 18, 2018


I’m Very Into You is a stage adaptation of the published email correspondence between legendary feminist punk author Kathy Acker and Australian media theorist McKenzie Wark. In 1995--at the dawn of the internet- the two met in Sydney, Australia and fell into a fast and furious love affair. I’m Very Into You is their email epistolary immediately following Acker’s return home to San Francisco. In a two-week email frenzy, Acker and Wark use their own relationship as a case study to examine sexuality, gender, power, and culture as they attempt to keep their connection alive across thousands of miles.

Read by a large ensemble and interspersed with true contemporary stories of gender fuckery, queer desire, and online love, I’m Very Into You reenacts this legacy of 90s queer feminist romance and online love as it honors the late great Kathy Acker. The piece will be read (not memorized), with some light staging and live media design.
