Between performers and audience hangs a 9’x11’ crocheted replica of a YouTube window. Inside this frame Hoicka and Forever enact a mock soap operatic surgical drama in drag. Uncle Wink, Hoicka’s campy and endearing male fantasy persona lies on a surgical table. Mini Maul, Forever’s surrealist punk-rock-queen meets Christian-country-star alter ego tinkers above him with an array of “surgical” tools. Uncle Wink remains fully conscious while gloriously splayed open.
