A real live girl works on herself in this side-eyed, vocal-fried, self help punk show.

A lo-fi performance by Marita Michaelis, HOT AND NORMAL peers into the material world of a real live girl’s troubled interior. As a radio transmits the mundane horrors of the present moment, she sits alone with her thoughts, a pile of clothes, a remote-control rodent, and a collection of anthropomorphic household objects. The girl’s anti-monologue includes musical interludes and costume changes. A performance of self-care, self-obsession and phony vulnerability, this show explores what it really means to “work” on oneself. HOT AND NORMAL is a tongue in cheek journey of vapid self-discovery, replete with vocal fry, fake nudity, and a live punk rock band.
