Xander Marro

Xander Marro is a fake scientist/olde style tinker residing at the dirt palace; a feminist cupcake encrusted netherworld located along the dioxin filled banks of the Woonasquatucket River (which is to say in Providence, RI, USA). From this post she makes movies, puppet shows, prints and phone calls. Her adventures underground have included curating the “Movies with Live Soundtracks” film series and performing in various theatrick/musical formats as one of the variety of her alter ego’s (Madame Von Temper Tantrum, Lady Long Arms, Lil Blood-n-Guts, Madame Von Malt Liquor, etc.) Of recent days she has gotten herself deep into the wild world of community organizing around neighborhood social justice and human rights issues. In her spare time she is the managing director of AS220 where she crafts endless spreadsheets and reports documenting the possibility of an organized egalitarian approach to art making as a revolutionary tool in achieving enlightened human consciousness. Fuck war! True Love is the end of oppression!
