Performance Collective and the Department of Communication Studies are proud to present performance artist, memoirist, and activist Terry Galloway. Not quite blind as a bat but definitely deaf as a doornail, Terry Galloway is a modern medical accident who makes wild sport of her own disabilities in defense of the defenseless. Side-splitting funny and shocking, she’s brimful of ideas for shaking an audience out of its gosh-aren’t-we-enlightened complacency and onto that uncomfortable narrow ledge where they’re not sure whether they should be laughing or crying. One hour of pure, energetic theater that's "just a little scary, like eating snails or doing oral sex for the first time."
“…Galloway is a performer of bone-rattling force, mind-bending insight.”
– Austin American-Statesman
“[She] alternate[s] between addressing the audience as if talking to a friend, and turning away from the spectators, indulging instead in private reveries and poetic passages. The combination is completely satisfying and sometimes shocking.”
– San Diego Tribune
“…an adroit mix of dark humor, confession.”
– San Francisco Examiner
Out All Night and Lost My Shoes has been called "one of the foundational texts in the history of disability performance."
