Kassha Lisinksi

Kassha is a Minneapolis-based multimedia artist and verbal experimentor of questionable neurotypicality and queer persuasion. They grew up in a very small, bad-smelling city in Iowa which happened to have several pockets of readily accessible natural areas of varying ecological health, which contributed to the artist’s sense of self as a member of a vastly diverse living system. A graduate of art and theatre technology studies at the University of Iowa, they use the vocabulary of immersive spaces to transmit and communally process the trauma of the current environmental crisis, as well as to devise potentialities of survival and resilience. Kassha’s literary work has been published in community zines, online publications, and Iowa City’s Little Village; they design sound, light, and video for live theatre productions; and they have performed at a multitude of open mics and curated shows, including most recently the queer-led Patrick’s Cabaret in Minneapolis.
