Saltine and Pepper, an evening of queer video, comdey and Theatre

Greetings and Happy Summer!

You are invited to Saltine and Pepper, an evening of queer video, comdey and Theatre, Thurs July 18th 8pm - 9:30pm at The Headwaters Theatre 55 NE Farragut St in Portland OR.

Chicago artist and Radical Fae Cody Sullivan AKA Saltine Saltine is bringing their show “Impressions: A comedic and witty parody of an art history lecture...” to Portland OR for the first time.

Pepper Pepper will show a new video piece “Pink Moment…” from their time at MacDowell Artist Colony last fall.





Cody Sullivan presents Saltine’s Impressions. A parody of an art history lecture, Saltine tells the origin stories behind some of the most iconic works of art and literature in the Western cannon. Is Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf a masterpiece of stream of consciousness writing or a by product of a coke addiction? Is The Thinker by Rodin a depiction of man contemplating the human condition? Or is it a representation of a morning poop?  Through a slide show and impressions of the artists discussed we see the history of art through Saltine's distorted vision. The original run, Tuesdays from January 8th to February 5th 2019 at the Frontier Theater in Chicago, sold out three of five shows.


Saltine's creator Cody Sullivan is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Since moving to Chicago four years ago he has become a house performer at the iO Theater; currently performing with Dreamboat, an all queer identifying Harold Team and began a weekly show at the Juicebox Theater creating fully improvised plays. Sullivan's work as Saltine includes performance art and theater and has been written about in such publications as The Windy City Times and The Pultizer Center. A writer as well as a performer, his radio play World Series and the live recordings of his monthly radio show Saltine's Newsletter, which was included in the 2019  Chicago Podcast Festival, can be found at

Pink Moment: One afternoon, 30* and a pink dress in Peterborough NH.
