Documentation of the May 29, 1993 performance of Ron Athey's "Martyrs and Saints," as part of the 4th annual "In Through the Out Door" series. <br>In his Chicago premiere, Los Angeles-based performer Ron Athey presents a new work, Martyrs and Saints, that uses S/M and B/D techniques to explore new rituals of passage and freedom. Drawing from his past as a Pentecostal minister, tribal rituals of "modern primitivism" and his current HIV+ status, Athey uses the body to convey critiques of society and religious beliefs. Athey's imagery is not for the faint of heart, (applying and receiving piercing techniques with other performers) his narrative does not follow the logic of clearly identified protagonists/antagonists (soldiers become altar boys) yet his trance/dance of water and blood saturates the senses and forces an emotional response from the witness. "Martyrs and Saints" was also performed at RSG on May 28, 1993. <br>This performance were a part of the 4th annual series "In Through the Out Door," held May 21-June 11, 1993. The series explored the sensibilities and artwork being produced within gay and lesbian communities, each year changing to reflect current trends and issues. The 1993 season "will hopefully expand the definition of queer... Queer not meaning straight, gay or lesbian, but queer really meaning queer." –[Source: Event Calendar -- May/July 1993]
