Good episode? Give it some love!
Dito Van Reigersberg visited Grinnell to perform his heralded Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret drag show. On this episode, Ben Binversie '17 talks with Dito about his hairy-chested drag persona and how she challenges him and the audience to grow and explore. Dito found a home in the performance space, embracing its radical possibilities to push us outside our comfort zones and express emotions and thoughts in a way that transcends the normal rhythms of daily life. Dito and Martha encourage us all to embrace the permission to swim in the waters of uncertainty and explore our identity and purpose in this world.
