Danielle Brazell's Battalion: Acts of Resistance is like TheVagina Monologues on steroids. Performance artist Brazell has spent her career producing feminist work, but Battalion doesn't stop at a proclamation of girl power. Rather, it explores resistance in all its incarnations -- emotional, physical, political and social -- through brazen vignettes that incorporate text, movement and imagery. A founding member of the Sacred Naked Nature Girls, an experimental performance collective that toured (mostly naked) around the States in the mid-'90s, Brazell is best known for her tenure as artistic director at Santa Monica's Highways Performance Space. Out magazine has called her one of the most influential gays and lesbians working in theater; see why as she resists theatrical convention at 8 p.m. today and Saturday, June 10.
