Sabrina Chap Bio

Sabrina Chap is a writer, performer and activist whose groundbreaking collection, “Live Through This: On Creativity and Self-Destruction” is quickly becoming a fixture in the new mental health scene. A thought provoking and engaging speaker, Chap has spoken on art, creativity, gender and self-destruction in colleges, museums and writing centers in the US and abroad. She is able to tailor her presentations to fit a variety of student groups, including bookings by mental health collectives, gender studies, queer studies and writing centers.She began her lecture and workshop facilitating skills in DIY festivals such as Ladyfests and the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, soon refining her presentations in front of National Organization of Women college campus groups to budding artists at the Brooklyn Museum. Chap is also a respected musician and performer who has toured nationally and internationally with her music, a unique brand of cabaret that brings her to burlesque and circus stages world-wide. Her ability to compel an audience as a trained performer, combined with the survival skills learned through her focus on self-destruction, makes her heartfelt lectures and workshops a powerful and liberating experience for audiences.Her work and brand of mental health activism has been featured in Bitch Magazine, the Advocate, Bust, KEXP, and the International Museum of Women. The Advocate stated, “’Live Through This’ delves deep into the psyches of poets, dancers, playwrights, and performers (including Patricia Smith, Eileen Myles, Kate Bornstein, and Margaret Cho) to reveal the forces that drive artists toward both passion and pain.” As a writer, her work has been featured in anthologies, “Feministing,” “Adbusters,” “Gathering of the Tribes” and more. As a performer, she has been noted by the New Yorker for her ‘rousing’ performances, and profiled as an artist to watch out for by Venus Zine. Curve Magazine said of her, “Chap deserves to be a star.”All in all, Sabrina Chap is a unique brand of speaker – rooted in DIY activism and mental health politics, while lecturing with the intensity of a passionate performer who captures the complexities on the compelling nature of both self-creation and self-destructive acts.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Sabrina Chap and other top speakers and celebrities.
