Kalan Sherrard


Tour. Raised in a small rainforest forest destroyed by contemporary corporations, xE became a student of comparative literature in the middle west, and in between meaningless arrests for anti/activism, began to develop a series of deranged theoretical performances on the underbelly of New Orleans and New York City, where xE has been working for over a decade: weird underground destruction dances, 20-hour-long pushes of huge trundling towers of grotesquery, cultish amalgams, sudden statuesque installations, public transit permutations, operas for animals and inanimate 'objects'.

A double grantee of the Jim Henson Foundation for the Morphology of XOS and Offal Unstory, xErr formally anarchic, non-narrative, adult-friendly puppet shows and Not-Happenings have ranged through sixty countries on five continents, pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

xE is also a member of several collectives and groups, including Creatures from the Hole Poetry and Film Autocracy, Flotsam, Ningun Solicitar, and Lxs Huerfanos/Putos/Crios, and organizes a traveling Garbage Festival disrupting the ontology waste, as well as the global lift festival Elevate1, and has constructed living Machines to Make Changes in the World in Dili, Mexico City, and Troglobal.
