In the lounge Queerly Single in a Chaotic Universe Jennifer Joy
About This Show
Jennifer Joy queers science in order to make sense of these times and her own single status. She grapples with the fact that her family voted for Trump… which, unexpectedly, suddenly gives her leverage over them. She also explores her life as a single person, and wonders how her life would’ve been different, had events in her early life been different. Chaos theory meets art in this comedic response to these times.
